the Indian Party

Three seminars on the country of India: Culture, clothing, and a mehndi workshop (painting complex designs on the skin with henna), led up to a successful Indian Party hosted by Karen Heim on June 17, 2000. In addition to people in Indian dress, there were lots of interesting recipes presented for the attendees to enjoy. The general consensus was that a costume and food party should be an annual event for the Guild, so watch for an announcement regarding a theme in the Scarlet Letter. Once again, there will be seminars and perhaps field trips to help participants get into the mood with ideas and background info.
