JANUARY 2021 WORKSHOP NOTES

NORBAG's January Zoom workshop had our largest attendance to date - 52 members joined us for Michele Kamprath's excellent presentation of making a Star Book. This was our first workshop at the new time of 10 a.m. PST. We had our papers pre-cut and essential materials at hand so Michele was able to lead us through step-by-step on constructing the book. At the end of the workshop members shared what they made and the creativity of our group certainly came through in the different color schemes and variations that were made. Thank you Michele for a workshop that will inspire us to make this book again and to try out some of the alternative ideas that our members shared. This workshop was recorded and is now available for viewing. To receive the link and password contact Dolores. This recording will be deleted on February 13, 2021 at midnight.
