[Workshop] Filigree


#1

Dear Folks,

Thanks to all of you who wrote me requesting regarding my
filigree workshops…Your letters came just before I went in for
knee surgery, so I am afraid I am only getting to answer your letters
now…If anyone who wrote me does not receive a reply by the time
this letter gets into the Digest, please do let me know and I promise
to respond/re-respond promptly…!

I have had some nice phone visits with Orchidians regarding filigree
tools and techniques…If anyone else would like to call for a
chat, my phone number is: 972(Israel)-2(Jerusalem)-671-2657…

I apologize again for the delay…

Janet in Jerusalem
