What a lovely time we had at our Piedmont District Spring meeting on March 17, 2014 at the Doubletree in Richmond. We shared our table with nationally acclaimed speaker Tony Tedesco and heard first hand his concept and explanation of the armature design. His program included several references and clarifications of designs in our National Handbook. Questions popped up all over the audience and he graciously answered each one. He made a valid point that many times our design schedules include the more advanced and complicated designs and ignore the traditional ones that the novice and beginners feel more comfortable doing. Our new members would first enjoy learning simple designs that can be used in the home before they grasp the concepts of the challenging ones.
His creations are below and you can see he is a talented designer. We so enjoyed talking with him and seeing him work his magic.
