September Meeting with Becky Goldsmith

Our first meeting of the 2013-14 guild year was busy and filled with information, inspiration and eye-candy.  It was very nice to see some returning members as well as some new members.  Our speaker for the evening was Becky Goldsmith from Piece O' Cake Designs from Texas.  Her talk was about "Colour"-it was  interesting, amusing and filled with inspiration.
