Happy New Year!!!
I hope that your holiday season was filled with friends and family, and that you were able to enjoy some of the many activities available. I did manage to get out and see some of the beautiful decorations — the lights are my favorite! And I must say a special thanks to Dana Perez for hosting our holiday party this year at her spectacular home. I know several of us had porch envy, and totally enjoyed sitting outside on a warm December day!! It was so good to see so many of you come out for a fun event!
As we head into 2018, we have plenty of activities for you to get inspired, learn something new, and just enjoy the comradery of fellow scribes! Please see the list of classes and be sure to sign up as soon as possible as I know they will fill up!
We will be starting regional groups this year — a chance to get together in a small group to share ideas, tips, small projects, and also to just get to know each other. I hope to have more info at the January meeting, so stay tuned.
We will also be focusing on outreach opportunities this year, so if you know of an event or place that would be a good place to share our love of calligraphy, please email me. Ann Cobb and I did a demo at Paper & Ink Arts last month, and had several people interested in coming to check out the guild. We are setting up guidelines for outreach, and will be sharing those at an upcoming meeting.
Scribehaven is coming up in February. This is the 10th year of the retreat, and Vicki Brandt has planned a special event for us. I look forward to it every year, and I know this year will be the best yet!
I hope you can come to the meeting in January — we have lots to share!
