I had a lovely time visiting with the friends I went to France in June 2011 once again. The classes were wonderful and taught by some amazing teachers. Kaari taught a bracelet class, Molly taught a folded book class, Charlotte Lyons and Pam Garrison taught a sailors valentine patchwork class, Michelle Jorgensen taught a shadow box collage class and Anna Corba taught a beeswax coated collage book. Kaari is as gracious and lovely as ever. This March she has her own French General line coming out at Michael's, so be sure and check it out. It is a tasteful paper line based on many of her French discoveries. This is a huge opportunity for Kaari and she has worked very hard making sure each piece was as it should be. Congratulations Kaari! Thank you for a memorable weekend!
