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
When you arrive at the meeting just place your baking on the sale

Join us as Violet Smythe introduces us to Neuland. This hand was adapted by calligraphers from a type face designed by Rudolph Koch.
Check the meeings page fo supplies to bring.
Join us as Catherine Cooper shares her technique of using layerd watercolour papers and lettering to add framing, depth, texture and/or colour to a composition. You need to bring a sheet of painted watercolour paper. We will be cutting the paper into small pieces so it doesn’t have to be a picture just colour on the paper.
Socializing is the focus of our June meeting! Everyone is asked to bring a small plate of goodies to share so we can eat while we visit! The library will be open from 7 to 7:30 so you can get some books to use over the summer months. Catherine Cooper will be demonstrating a watercolour technique. You’ll get the paper to do your own sheet over the summer. Yes, you still get homework over the summer. You need to bring your completed sheet back in September to be able to do the program acivity.
Join us for a special meeting. John Cogley, the owner of Daniel Smith Artist Materials in Seattle, will be demonstrating some of his products that are suitable for calligraphy.
