    Wish Ellen Collins a happy retirement!

    Ellen Collins, MCPF, a long time PPFA member and popular PPFA educator, taught her last PPFA class (Framing Techniques for Needle Art) at the recent PPFA Convention in Las Vegas.

    She was easily recognizable around the PPFA Convention and WCAF Expo/National Conference, sporting her beautiful Retirement Tiara!

    Before selling their business a couple of year ago, Ellen and her husband Roger owned Howard’s Art & Frames in Hagerstown, Maryland, for many years.

    Ellen, who has been framing since 1979, served as vice president of PPFA, chair of the Certification Board, and on the Guidelines Task Force. She was an MCPF examiner, PPFA competition judge, and past president of the PPFA National Capital Chapter.

    Ellen, we thank you for your long service to PPFA, and wish you all the very best in retirement!!

    Happy Retirement! You will be greatly missed. Always enjoy seeing you and catching up. Now you can enjoy travels, sewing, and saving doggies.

    Happy retirement.

    But if you just happen to be in Las Vegas late January next year, please stop by. We will miss you.
