Kansas Sunflower Gourd Patch

We have a new name. We were invited by the SMGS to join them as a new patch. Thank you to Bill and Donna Decker for joining us in our last get-together in McPherson at Merril's. We had good turnout, yummy lunch provided by Merril's lovely wife, Beth. Time was spent sharing, hearing about the AZ show and learning more about the up coming MO show. Our next meeting will be in Wichita in mid May. Details to follow later.

Even though we don't post often here we are still a very active group. We meet quarterly and enjoy learning something new from each other every time. Our next meeting is coming up this week. Some of us are planning on the trip to Springfield MO next month for the annual show.

Hello Kansas "gourders"!  Here I am, finally, in cyberspace, connecting with lots of "gourd friends".  I'll put up a few pictures soon.  Looking forward  to seeing you all at our next Sunflower Gourd Patch meeting at "Kansas Originals" near Wilson, KS.

Hi Everyone. Yesterday I emailed a letter about our get-together on the 5th of Aug. If someone didn't get it and is planning to come, please contact me. It looks like we will have a great turn out. I'm excited to meet everyone.

Bev, remember when we met at McPherson!!!! We've GOT to do that again.  I'm sad that you won't be at Wuertz. :(

I would really like the Kansas Gourders to have a get-together here in Kansas.   A few years ago we did have a large event, but it ended up rather fizzling out, we now have a small group in Wichita, 6 or 8 people at most.  We meet once a month to decorate gourds.

Oh how I wish I was going to Wuertz this year, but it wasn't in the cards, too many family health problems.  We did have a small get-together two years ago.

Dear Kansas Gourders...

How many of you are headed southwest in a few weeks to Wuertz Farms?  We need to have a KS get-together there!

Welcome Teresa and Beverly to the Kansas Gourders.  The membership is growing!!! Can't wait until we can set up some sort of get together.
