The Sun Lakes Arts and Crafts Association held its annual general meeting on Monday, January 12. Members were able to renew their memberships and sign up for the annual Spring Show and Sale which will take place on Saturday, March 21 at the Oakwood Country Club. There will be a late signup for the show on Saturday, March 7 from noon-1:00 p.m. at the Oakwood Country Club. Any questions about the show should be directed to the show chairperson, Carol S. at 480-802-1920.

You must be a member of the Sun Lakes Arts and Crafts Association to participate in the association’s crafts shows and members must be Sun Lakes residents. Items for sale at the show must be handcrafted by the member. Items made by family members or friends not residing in Sun Lakes are not permitted and no commercial resale products are allowed.

There are a limited number of tables available for the shows so members are encouraged to register early if they would like a table. The fall show was full and there was a waiting list.

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.
