I have had a great time trying out new activities and meeting up with people who have similar interests. Boomerang is a great way of connecting and trying out new things.
Member & Ambassador
Now I’m addicted to this. The class [Byzantine Bracelet workshop] was very good and now my husband has a list of people for me to make them for including my 93 year old aunt.
Member & Host
I had a really great experience and I got to learn something new with other people that were experts because they had practiced the craft, not just knew about it technically.
