Our Workshop Month!
I hope everyone enjoyed our free 35th Anniversary session with Cheryl Teft. From the number of people who submitted decorated letters to the Ink Drops newsletter, I think your executive made a popular choice in hiring her! If you missed the live session, you still have a chance to watch the recording, as it will be available until Nov. 21.
This month, we had Ink Drop submissions from a few people who have seldom shared their work. We all love to see the wonderful variety of calligraphic creativity presented in our newsletter, but it will only happen with your commitment to send in your photos. Please forward them to firstname.lastname@example.org as early in November as possible, and preferably by the third week. I’m still hoping we’ll have a few more photos of your Weaver Style Writing, even though it was taught in our October session.
I met Rachel Yallop this morning when Barbara and Amy did a tech. check with her. She is quite delightful and her workshop sounds like it will be such fun. You should consider signing on, as you do not have to be a skilled calligrapher to enjoy her instruction. I’m guessing this will lend itself well to creating greeting cards with a punch. I hope to see you there!
