Thanks to Zoom, we're back in business NORBAGGERS! On June 13th we had a great "meet and greet" Zoom event hosted by Celeste Chalasani. It was so successful that Margaret Beech, our prolific member from York, England, graciously volunteered to lead our first Zoom workshop in July. Margaret will be teaching us how to make nested pinwheels that provide an interesting and dimensional effect. She wrote, "I am aiming for each person to make one pinwheel card and if all goes well, a second one."

Margaret said that this is a very easy project with a real piece of Paper Magic at the end and will not take long to complete, so there should be plenty of time for members to share some book art that they've recently completed. There won't be a slideshow this time so have your piece close by and be prepared to say something about it. If you have questions about using Zoom, refer back to the June NORBAG newsletter and/or email Celeste. Please email Dolores Guffey by July 8 to receive the password for this Zoom workshop. 

Tools to have for the workshop:
  • Cutting mat
  • Craft knife with a new blade
  • Double-stick tape or a glue stick
  • Pencil
  • Steel ruler
  • Scoring tool
  • Bone folder
  • Fine black marker pen
Pre-cut papers (construction paper or slightly heavier).

Please have these cut prior to the workshop!
  • At least two squares of paper (so you can make two cards) in each of the following sizes: 8", 7.5", 7" and 6.5". (It's best if each square for one card is a different color since contrasting colors will show up best in the finished fold). Please be sure these papers are truly square.
  • Two 4.5" x 9" cards scored & folded to 4.5" square for attaching finished pinwheels to.
  • Please make a ruler template 2” x 8” in stiff card before the meeting.  This will save much measuring when drawing the margins on the squares.
WHEN:       Saturday, July 11 from noon - 3 p.m. Pacific Time via Zoom
WHERE:     At home on your computer, tablet or smartphone
SUPPLIES: See above list
RSVP:        YES! before July 8 to Dolores to receive the password to enter the Zoom workshop (contact information is in the newsletter).
