May Meeting Recap

For our May Zoom meeting, we viewed an Ichiyo demonstration video by Elaine Jo. She created arrangements for the home without using kenzans. She utilized materials to stabilize and support each other and on some arrangements, she used a metal grid apparatus to support her floral materials, which she incorporated as part of the design. Elaine’s demonstration had many creative ideas.

June Sayonara Meeting

Our June Sayonara Meeting and Board Installation will be held on June 27, 2021. View the invitation HERE. I am looking forward to seeing as many of our members as possible at our upcoming Sayonara Meeting.
