Maryann is a regular attendee now, how cool is that?!
Looks like everyone had a great time while I was on the Island at the Fairbank Calligraphy Society annual retreat to Yellow Point Lodge. I would add some photos but they won't appear in the right order! I always forget that about this blog program......suffice it to say, we all had a wonderful time and everyone survived my Akim Cursive shareshop on Saturday morning. The theme for the weekend was Journalling and WoW! did we see some wonderful examples!!
April meeting coming up soon.....Violet is helping us explore brush lettering with the fibre tip brushes like the ones you get at Daiso or the sets of Zig brushes (actually double ended, brush and scroll nib). See you there!
