    Dear Teresa,
    I am an Australia who has a passion for pysanky. My collection features the work of 28 artists from Ukraine, the USA and Canada, and numbers well in excess of 400 beautiful decorated eggs in both traditional and more contemporary designs. I have just discovered your website, and having worked my way through your gallery of designs, I am wondering if you would be prepared to recreate some of your exquisite eggs for my collection. I am not sure if you sell your work – I am hoping that you do! There are 4 or 5 eggs that I am particularly interested in.
    Kindest regards,
    Jennie Power

    I plan to be there, just got back from Yellowstone and I don’t think I have anything else that would interfere. Where is Oak Hills and I’ll check with my daughters when they get home to see if they are interested. I don’t have a lot of artistic talent but would like to learn more about this. Do I need to bring anything and is there any fee. Debbie Buchanan

    I was going to try to bring a pair of sisters, but only one of them is available. So the total count for me is 2 people:


    See you on the 21st!
