Ukrainian Eggs Last year:

Last minute Eggs!

The store was in a bit of a flurry yesterday,
as Theresa Somerset performed a surprise Ukrainian Egg Decorating Demo briefly for WCAX channel 3 News!

Theresa was gracious as usual, and created all the different examples and stages of ukrainian egg decorating, for this unplanned event, in record time!
When I can find a link for it - I will definately post it!
