2. Reading and understanding project directions.

3. Printing instructions with photos and a list of supplies and amounts needed for each member.

4. Providing newsletter editor and webmaster with list of supplies that members will need to bring at least one week prior to meeting.

Each member will be responsible for bringing all their own supplies and tools if they want to participate in the hands on project. 

For this reason, guests will no longer be able to participate in the hands on projects. If a member brings a guest, that member may share her supplies with her guest. Otherwise the guest will just observe.
