Could a spring thaw be just around the corner? I am hopeful that it is! In any case we'll have a few things going on in March to keep us busy! First though, Thursday night is "Stich and More Stich" at Susan Haftel's house. We meet from 7 to 9 PM. Bring any kind of tidy needlecraft, or just come to chat at the Haftel residence. This is an ongoing activity, every other Thursday night.
March 5, 10 AM, SAS Radisson: Coffee Morning. Join us for tea/coffee/sweets and as always, bring a friend and newcomer!
IWAV member Lis Berthelsen has kindly invited us to her home the evening of March 10. We had so much fun experimenting with the lovely makeup from the Danish stand (and Lis has tons) that we thought it would be fun to do it again and have a "girls night in" at Lis's house. Thanks so much for the offer, Lis! I think that Breda will also be on hand to give us facials as well. So if you can make it Wednesday March 10 at 6:30 PM please RSVP to me by March 9.
I hope you have your calendar marked for March 20, which is our second annual breast cancer fundraiser at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. We have now heard from the hospitals and it looks like biopsy needles are indeed needed again, so proceeds from the event (which will include dinner, drinks, live music through the decades, the debut of Ruta Rimsiliene's newest evening shoe collection, and lots and lots of FUN) will go to purchase biopsy needles for Lithuanian breast cancer patients. We are so very pleased that longtime and very involved IWAV member Siobhan Denham has agreed to be the patron of our event--we are especially glad since the Denhams will be leaving us soon and this is our last big IWAV function to say goodbye to Siobhan. It promises to be a great evening, so don't miss it! I'm attaching the invitation so please, pass it along to your friends and acquaintances!
Then, after the excitement of the fundraiser, come to In Vino (on Ausros Vartu, on your way to Gates of Dawn) March 24 at 7:30 PM. For a good year now, we've heard that you want an evening book club that meets somewhere to have just a glass of wine or a tea and a good chat. This is our chance to start one, so bring ideas and your favorite books (maybe even some you wouldn't mind exchanging with others) and we'll get it started! Email me if you have questions or plan to come.
That's all for now...see you soon,
