Minutes from August

Meeting Minutes 9 August 2011
26 present
6:50 PM start

**We began with an extended time of show and tell and since we had a number of visitors, we also did introductions--telling a little bit about ourselves and why we like calligraphy. We took a few minutes and asked those who attended the IAMPETH to share something about the conference
Books from the book fair were on the table for perusal and purchase.

**Our next workshop will be November 5/6 with Krisitin Doty. All skill levels are welcomed to learn more about drawing for calligraphers.

**Cecelia showed us how to make a great tri-fold card using a fun monoline alphabet she modeled with a B3/B4 nib. After passing out clear templates for us to cut at home, lined paper to practice at our seats, and an exemplar, she showed us how to use the nib making sure the rounded end was flat on the paper. Again, the overhead camera/projector came in handy. She went around the room to make sure we all understood where to cut and how to fold. We look forward to see what everyone has created next month!
