Piecemakers Teachers' Open House 2017

    Always in early January, the Teachers' Open House is the best way for all of us to start the year. We gather together, share ideas, inspire one another and show our appreciation for those with the God-given ability to teach. Come say "hi" to all your dear friends and meet some new ones.

    Many of these teachers do free demonstrations throughout the year -- watch for them in the calendar of events.

    Below are pictures of teachers and their handiwork taken at Open House 2017, January 7th.
