**Shelly will be doing a watercolor lettering demo from 5:30-8:30 at 555 E. Pikes Peak. She recommends HP Premium LaserJet paper from Amazon.
Show & Share:
**Mary has been doing an online paper weaving class and brought several examples she did since we last met.
**Kimmi has 2 framed pieces featuring plastic netting she melted into a collage.
Sherry had a number of handmade cards with her fine copperplate script and embellishments.
**Kim gave us pre-cut book board s and spine last month to cover and punch. We were to bring these to the meeting and she made sure we all had waxed linen and needles and paper for a jig. She demonstrated the Secret Belgian Binding technique using the overhead and then went around to help out where needed. Once we did several rows, it started to really come together.
**Kim also showed us how to sew our sections into the spine. There are links to 3 different websites she recommends for further help on how to cover book boards and how to lace up the binding.
