A Patch is a local organization of Idaho Gourd Society members who meet on a regular basis to share knowledge and techniques about gourd art. Join in to meet other gourd artists and learn gourd art techniques.
We have four patches having meetings through out the month at various locations. IDGS members are welcome to attend any, or all, of them.
