March 12, 2022 General Meeting
Catherine Geyer finally got to lead her first in person meeting of Midwest Metalsmiths after becoming President two years ago. We still had masks and were doing our best to social distance. It was so good to be together and at least look each other in the eye. After the meeting there was some swapping going on with gem stones and tools being sold and antique jewelry being given away.
