2010 Holiday Card Exchange Event

Blessed with a warm but drippy day over 30 members of the Guild gathered for our 16th annual holiday card exchange—our most popular. Unlike other exchanges, members must sign up ahead of time to participate, then each participant makes enough cards for all of the participating artists. The first year (1995) 17 cards were made, 29 were made this year. The fewest made were 15 (1996) and the most were 36 (1998). The Guild has a set of all 440 cards made over these 16 years. In recent years, a set for each year has been saved for the library and members may check those out. Look for photos of this year's cards in the next newsletter and on Flickr.
The collection of cards is arranged on the table, ready to picked up by participants. 
This is another favorite table arrangement. Not all members attending the exchange made cards but they did bring delicious goodies.
 So start thinking about joining this exchange in 2011! We would love to have you, your cards, and your cookies.
