oooooooooops! this was supposed to show up in order........

The plan was for Nan to remind us with a refresher course on Gwen Weaver's 
from a workshop we had some years ago. 
We worked the morning on lettering.............
but need another morning to complete it!

With the sad news that our long time member, Joyce Zetterstrom, had passed away just 5 days before her birthday in January, we decided to have a potluck luncheon and tea party in her honour. 

Joyce's quick wit and humour will be missed.
April Workshop
This might have been one of those "you had to be there" moments. Jack Turpin has certainly been an encouragement to members who were not regular journal keepers before the three days we have spent with him. We are now keepers of "Jack Journals".   His enthusiasm for art is definitely infectious!

March Workshop

If we thought the workshop with Christy in February was amazing, we were in awe as we worked through just one day with her showing us her 

Once again, her exemplar packet WOWED us! 

It was an overflowing class with so much to do and learn that we all agreed that we would like to have her back for two more days! One could feel the enthusiasm in the room and by the number of homework assignments done so quickly! We have homework to complete before Christy returns early in 2019.

We are looking forward to working with Christy in the new year.

February 2018

Early in February, a group of us were treated to a wonderful 

 with Christy Schroeder from Blaine, Washington.

Participants received a wonderful packet of exemplars - over 30 pages of wonderful! Very detailed with step-by-step instructions, they should be published as a book!

This was a most enjoyable workshop experience to all those who attended and Christy comes highly recommended by the Guild.
