Our January 2014 program saw us exploring the Button Alphabet originally designed by Peter Thornton and now taught by Louis (sometimes Louie) Lemoine.  Our members, Violet and Shannon had recently taken a workshop with him in Vancouver and kindly shared what they had learned.

The letters were originally done to use on a conference button for the name of the participants. It works very well for that! Using either the widest Zig marker or the widest Parallel pen, this is an easy hand to learn and add to one's expertise. It looks fun on envelopes - there again - best suited for the name and not the address as they aren't the easiest of letters to read and we do want our mail to get to its destination quickly!

Thank you to Violet and Shannon for sharing!
