Argyle Walks Again

This active branch in a small village in Alberta has walked every year through all kinds of weather. Thanks to sponsors over $450 was raised to support the work of the society around the world.

A Message from Marilyn Wattenbarger, AWI Handicraft Coordinator.
Welcome to spring everyone. Easter has just passed and it was a wonderful warm weekend. Hoping everyone got to have dinner with one member of their family.
There have been some changes accepted by council to the Handicraft list. There is a new category called “Felting” and the Arts section has been altered and expanded. Please look for these changes in the new Handicraft List which will be published by the AWI Council. I am hoping that everyone has been able to complete projects to put in the up and coming AWI Convention in September. There will be two items per category allowed from each branch, but these must be from two different members. This is a one time allowance because of COVID-19 and the in person AWI convention 2020 being cancelled.
Happy crafting in whatever category you enjoy.
