HERRINGBONE CALENDAR WORKSHOP

Margaret Beech's July exchange book is the inspiration for this month's workshop. Dolores Guffey will show us how to make up several of these little structures that would make wonderful holiday stocking stuffers. Of course you don't have to make just a calendar since this structure lends itself to many possibilities to showcase photographs, art work, favorite quotations, etc. For this workshop we will just use one size, but the structure can be made any size.



What to bring:

  • Seven (7) pieces of cardstock size 2 3/4" x 5 1/2" (grain short) for each structure you wish to make (there will be plenty of time to make two, if you so desire). It is suggested that you use a solid color cardstock for the workshop which will facilitate the assembly.
  • Thread: Perle Cotton, size 5, in a color to complement your paper
  • Needle
  • Scissors
  • Piercing tool
  • Craft knife
  • Metal edge ruler
  • Pencil and eraser
  • Glue stick and waste paper
  • Bone folder
  • Six (6) paper clips
  • Decorative piece of paper for calendar's cover (see photo examples)
  • Washi tape (optional to complement the color of cardstock)

What will be provided:


  • Monthly calendar pages (along with a master calendar to take home and copy)
  • Instructions
  • Sample structures with different sewing and gluing options

When:
   Saturday November 11 at 12 noon

Where:  Eureka Methodist Church at Del Norte & F Streets
Bring:    See above list
RSVP:    Yes by November 8 to Dolores (contact information in the newsletter)
Cost:     50 cents...what a bargain!
