Meetings

The Society meets on the first or second Friday of each month from September through December, and from February through June, at 7:30 PM at All Saints Lutheran Church, 1061 Pinecrest Road in Ottawa unless otherwise noted. Entry to the meeting room is through the main door.

Everyone is welcome; your first meeting is free.

Meetings include a business portion, time for browsing the library, class and workshop registration, a chance to see work brought in by other members (and share your own), and the evening's program.

We encourage members to bring a beverage or snack to share, to make our break times even friendlier.
