Afternoon Tea with the Fashion Gang

Afternoon Tea with the Fashion Gang
May 30th, 2-5 pm, 
At the YSAC Community Gallery
$20 admission -all proceeds going to the YSAC -

Have Afternoon Tea with the fashion gang
 and explore the vital importance of accessorizing your "look".

 From last year's highly popular Historical Clothing Series,
Deb Henderson, Bette Kelley, Bill White and Celise McKee
are coming back to talk about clothing accessories,
both historical and current.

Wear all the bling you want - hats, scarves, jewelry, gloves, belts, shoes, and jackets!
Sue Hawkey, our Tea Party Expert is hosting the scrumptious Afternoon Tea.
At the end of the Historical Clothing series last year, no one wanted it to end.  The participants insisted that there needed to be a Tea with everyone wearing their favorite clothes. They wanted more time with and more information from the clothing experts who had imbued the whole series with their high spirits and charm.
"Just a quick note to tell you how VERY much I enjoyed the Tuesday "workshop" at the Arts Council gallery.  I can imagine how much time and work went into developing the clothing displays and the talks -- they were terrific.  All of the presenters were so knowledgeable, informative and fun - the afternoon bubbled with the enthusiasm and love of each one's particular area of interest.  Looking forward to another Tuesday with you all."  Phyllis

Join us on Tuesday May 30th for Afternoon Tea With the Fashion Gang
