Artists weave stories through fiber creations

For the first time ever in San Marcos, four venues are coordinating exhibits and receptions for those exhibits under the general title, “Sewing Our Stories: Personal, Cultural, Universal."
Fibers’ exhibits that include quilts and other fiber expressions will be on display at each of these venues – each with their own take on the overall theme.  
Receptions will be held on Saturday, Feb. 13 throughout the afternoon and evening, encouraging the public to tour all of the exhibits.

A Word About Recycling with Gloria and Ollie Maier - Feb. 7

Today is Super Bowl Sunday, so some may have other things on their mind than reading about recycling so will keep it short (but we hope they recycle the beverage cans and jars/cans from the chips dip mix).
An item from the Resource Recycling eNewsletter caught our eye. (We were not even aware there was such a program as this.)
The article started: “In recent months, a number of communities in North America have inched closer to exploring mixed-waste processing, while other projects have hit roadblocks.”
