Picnic Party!

Picnic Party!

Happy September to you all. Our Aide-mémoire team got together for a picnic party this month. It was a wonderful gathering of our current staff and team members from seasons past. While our team is small, we don't all work in the same location and see each other on a daily basis. So it was a wonderful opportunity to have us all gathered in one spot. Aran graciously provided good food and drink, and introduced eco-dyeing to us all! Using botanical, organic materials like flower petals, leaves, and herbs everyone got to try bundle dyeing a t-shirt. 

Our talented and friendly photographer, Sean Airhart, took some incredible photos that we wanted to share with you. Hope all of you enjoy the last bits of summer before we truly head into autumn.

For fun and games, we played a lawn game called Kubb. Ever tried it? It's a great all-ages (well except for toddlers), game that anyone can play. 

Thanks Aide-mémoire Team for a fun day at the park!
