February Shell of the Month: Cypraea tigris and Cypraea pantherina
February Meeing: Five years ago, Joyce Matthys decided to attempt to make sea-silk from the byssus of pen shells she found on Sanibel Island’s beaches. At that time, she had no idea it would be the start of a whole new educational adventure and that she would become the first person in the world living outside the Mediterranean to spin sea-silk. She will share that adventure when she presents her program at our February Shell Club meeting. Joyce spends the winter in Fort Myers and returns to Beaverton, Oregon for the summer.
