Here’s a nice article about Margaret Wright.  Many of you have some of her dulcimer tabs.

Athens Dulcimer T-shirts

In addition to ordering hats Janice was asked about ordering t-shirts with the Athens Dulcimer logo and she said if we can get up an order for 12, as they charge a set-up fee if it is less than 12 (they are screen printed), and that would make them more expensive.  If we can get at least 12 she will be glad to order them, but you need to let Janice know.  Most basic colors are available, and regular sizes.
