Cincinnati shop hop 9/24 – Meet at the Grove City Library at 8am. We’ll visit 4 Cincinnati area shops. At

We have committed to a make & take project for the Ohio Craft Museum on January 14, 2023 as part of
our agreement to use their space for our meetings. Please contact Lissa with any project ideas you may
have. They need to be fairly quick and easy so even kids can complete within a short time.
We need to determine if we want to continue to meet at the Ohio Craft Museum or look for another
venue for our meetings where we may not have to pay a fee.
