Your local reps still need permissions from some of you for emails! Out of some 200 members, we have a list of perhaps 70 who have responded. You can send me an email with the appropriate response also to arlee
dot ar at gmail dot com. Please put "Subscribe to SDA (Alberta)" or
"Unsubscribe from SDA(Alberta)" in the subject header and your full name in the body of the email. Please do send as requested---i, and the area rep, get a lot of emails and saying "yes please" is not enough--yes please to what? :)
Deadline for submitting swatches to the SDA collection has been extended to Aug 31st. Details here.
