Collecting Fabric of a Life: Thomas MacEntee

Sponsored by Flip Pal scanners


    Thomas is a joy to interact with and very knowledgable about his subject material, but not so much that he doesn't allow for plenty of audience input of ideas and solutions.  He has developed a very comfortable style for listeners in each class.  Even without a plethora of multicolored genablogger beads, he handled this one with the class and expertise I expected.  Great Job Thomas!

    Touch Matters - it brings out the character or texture which brings added value!

     Family History has contours and edges like many heirlooms we collect and try to preserve
