Dr. Laura Morelli's lecture, Made in France, was very well received.  Her insight into the unique artisinal crafts of the various regions of France educated and entertained the large audience as she took them on a magical tour of France. Everyone was appreciative of the tips she gave regarding the enjoyment of the traditional decorative arts of France as well as providing a guideline into the successful purchase and shipping of these crafts.

Thank you for making this event such a success!
