La démo qui devait avoir lieu ce soir est remise au mois prochain

Tonight was more  problem solving discussions and questions about meetings and books.

Nous avons surtout discuté du problèmes des livres ainsi que de discussions sur les problèmes soumis.Louise et Gaby s'offrent pour répartir les nouveautés .Une autre personne est souhaité pour partager la tâche. On a soumis la possibilité de se départir des anciens en les vendant. ( suivre)

Books: 2 people have agreed to take over the books. Only the recent ones will be kept by Gaby and Louise and another person to be determined. Each will have a small number and will be in charge of them.

We have discussed the possibility to sell the older books. Nothing definitive. To be discussed again.

Another topic came up having a bi monthly challenge the first one will be making a ring. So in March our challenge is rings.To help you here is a link that sends you to links  of tutorials so you have a starting point. (Just to mention the blog is in French but the tutorials are of many languages. Most of the time the pictures can guide you through. If you find other links please contact Louise by mail so she can add them to her blog.)

Une suggestion de Challenge est discuté puis entériné. Chaque 2 mois nous avons une challenge. Le premier sera faire une bague. Dans lles liens suivants vous trouverez divers tutos sur ce sujet pour vous aider. Le challenge est bi mensuel . Dons en mars on veut voir vos bagues.
