Come and join us for the first meeting of 2015!
An Introduction to Copperplate with Renée Alexander
Intrigued by this elegant pointed pen script? Learn some of the basics with Renée. She recommends a Gillot 303 nib and an oblique pen holder. (The Hunt/Speedball one is fine).
We have ordered enough nibs for everyone and they will be available for purchase at the meeting (approximate cost $1.00). You will need to bring your own oblique pen holder.
DeSerres have the Hunt oblique holder listed in their online store for $2.59. You can probably buy it locally in their retail stores.

LIGHT UP THE SEASON WITH WCS
CHRISTMAS BAKE SALE and
Please join our society for our sweetest fundraiser of the year on November 26, 2014 at 7:30. (To be held after the short AGM- no election). After we select our sweets we will open the bidding for the AMAZING ARRAY of SILENT AUCTION items.
Please consider making/baking something for the sale. Think “Christmas”. Cookies and bars, preserves, tarts, spiced nuts –whatever gets your taste buds tingling.
Please bring your goodies wrapped and packaged in suitable sizes ready for sale complete with price tags. (Pricing – not too high and not too low – what you think is right.)
Please label your baking if it contains nuts for those who may have allergies.
When you arrive at the meeting just place your baking on the sale tables. Thank you.
The other ingredient we need for a successful sale is people who are going to buy the wonderful assortment of goodies and “things”. Please consider bringing a friend. It will be a fun evening.
Looking forward to see you there.
Sherry and Wendy will demonstrate several background techniques and then you’ll have the opportunity to try several of them out. Joiin us for this hands on program. All supplies will be provided.
