Attention all crafters and artists – theSun Lakes Arts and Crafts Association will hold its annual general meeting on Monday, January 11 at 10:00 a.m. in the Friendship Room in Sun Lakes Country Club.

All members and anyone interested in becoming a member are welcome to attend at which time we will hold a short meeting, followed by registration for our Spring Arts and Crafts Show. There will be elections for board positions including the position of president. Interested members can contact Bette Lu Buchanan at 480-710-2985 for more information. New memberships can be purchased at the meeting.

The Spring Show and Sale is scheduled for Saturday, February 20 at the Oakwood Country Club. Please note that this is a change in date from last year as Oakwood was fully booked for the month of March.

Just a reminder to members that the display case at Sun Lakes Country Club is updated on the first Monday of the month at 9:00 a.m. by Vel Boardman (phone 480-895-5028). Members are invited to bring their items for display and to pick up items from the previous month. The display case is a great place to showcase your talents and make people aware of what will be offered at the spring and fall shows.

This year the club has partnered with Local First Arizona and their Buy Local Movement to help promote local businesses and products. Craft sales, like ours, are a great way to support local artists and to buy locally made items. Visit the website at for more information about Local First Arizona and the buy local movement.
