Paper Piecing with Kimmi Brown
Welcome & Announcements:
**Candy was not up to coming so soon after recent knee replacement surgery, so Kimmi Brown stepped in as President.
** We welcomed Judy Applegarth who found us by seeing our work in the Commonwheel Gallery exhibit last month and Nancy Johnson who is a Stampin’Up rep and was with us once before.
Karen thanked Lynn for carting the library around in her absence.
**Kimmi reviewed a few highlights of the upcoming retreat at the Franciscan Center. It’s not too late to register. There will be 3 classes, plenty of time for visiting, playing games, or working on stuff you bring or learn in class. She and Cecelia stressed it’s a great way to get to know one another better.
**Cecelia is teaching a sewing class for the Western Sewing group she’s associated with.
**We were encouraged to send Aaron Packard’s 11 year old son a card since we heard of his diagnosis of leukemia.
Show & Share:
**Nancy brought recent samples of paper from Stampin’UP!
**Kim H brought samples of the kinds of books we’ll be making in her class at the retreat, and promoted The Art of The Fold by Hedi Kyle and Ulla Warchol. She says it’s a must have for anyone interested in making books or folded cards.
**Cecelia brought books from her library she was selling for super cheap.
**Kimmi had wonderful samples to pass around of projects she’s constructed with bits of cut paper. She often uses pictures in children’s book for inspiration. She presented three different approaches and encouraged us to visualize shapes as she does to make the construction a bit easier.
