March Meeting

The blog has been neglected of late, because we have a new facebook page which is easier to update, but it will be continuing as not all members are on facebook.

Our March meeting was the AGM, additionally, we took photos of Piney Lakes to inspire work for our display at the Claremont craft fair in August and we held a members swap of Artist Trading cards. Some members brought their collections of ATCs and their methods of displaying them for show and tell. (Margaret P's collection above)

Jane Stone's gorgeous hand embroidery

Jaslyn brought in these new books. We quickly decided to buy them for our library!

ATC collection in business card file.

I'll add April's Procion dye workshop photos later and in May we'll have a demo of Gelli Plate printing with the opportunity to try it.

Show and tell at our February meeting - it was great to catch up with everyone after the break.

Margaret F was working on an experimental hand stitched piece inspired by the book above.
