Holiday Get-Together and Card Exchange

Deck the halls and all be jolly! Sure...easy for you to say! Well, for at least one
afternoon you need not fret—you’ll be amongst friends who understand the
stresses and tribulations of the season and will put it all aside for a gathering
full of camaraderie and good food and cheer. Once again, Sandy V. has graciously offered her home for our NORBAG holiday card exchange festivities and remember:

  • Date: Saturday, December 8, 12 noon. See newsletter for directions to Sandy's home.
  • You do not have to be in the card exchange to join in! 
  • Everyone is invited and asked to bring a goody to share (please, nothing too gooey. Finger foods are requested).
  • We will not have the library with us at this gathering, but there will be a box so you can return any books you may have checked out
  • No RSVP required.

November Workshop: Blizzard Books

Structures by Dolores Guffey

Blizzard Books with Dolores Guffey: 

In this workshop we will play with variations of the Hedi Kyle "Blizzard Book" structure. The "Blizzard Book" is so named because one day Hedi couldn't get to work due to a blizzard and used that time to play with paper by doing experimental folds. This is that structure, and hence its name. The beauty of this structure is its versatility; it can be used as a spine, a hidden surprise fold, a book on its own, or a series of pockets in which content can be arranged, removed, or replaced at will. No sewing is involved – this book is made by creative folding of a single sheet of paper. We will make at least 4 variations, each one a prototype.

RSVP – PLEASE so that I can have enough paper cut ahead of time. Please
email or phone no later than Wednesday, November 7. Cost $1.00. See newsletter for contact information.

Materials to bring:
• Ruler
• Pencil
• Scissors
• Decorative papers (scraps at least 5" x 5")
• Rubber stamps and stamp pads
• Corner punch*
(* = optional; bring if you have)

Materials that will be provided:
• Pre-cut paper for structures

When, Where?
Saturday November 10, noon, usual place! See you there.
