January is our annual auction of artist made books and calligraphy pieces* for charity. We hope that all of you will bring an original book, an originally embellished book, or a piece of original calligraphy for our  very popular and successful book auction. Rules follow:

Rules:​

 

The Book(s): You can bring as many books and/or works of calligraphy as you want.  The only thing we ask is that they be either handmade OR hand embellished and decorated, meaning if you don't want to make a book you can buy a journal and decorate it!  Your calligraphy work should be original.

Please tag or label your books and pieces in some way so that we know who the artist is.

The Auction:

Books and work will be set out at the beginning of the meeting so that everyone can look at them.  At the end of the meeting we will have a quick silent auction.  Ten minutes of lightning fast bidding.  People who contribute books will automatically win tie breakers.

Books and works will be exchanged and money collected at the meeting so bring cash or check with you!  All money collected is given to charity (TBD).

Card Making!  Art Supply Testing!


This is going to be work day making lots of beautiful cards to have on hand to mail to members of our guild who cannot participate fully due to age or health issues.  We have a wonderful opportunity to sample many supplies from John Neal that will be shipped to us for the purpose of testing them. John Neal will discount the subsequent order and ship it for free to one address if the total is over $500.  We will plan to have this be our after meeting program but extend it another two hours or so. Bring a sack lunch or food to share and we can accomplish two goals at once.
