Next Meeting: Saturday, March 11, 2023 at 10 am

at St. Matthew Lutheran Church, Waco, Texas

Decorative Lettering
Member Cindy Boney will present the morning program on developing your own Decorative Lettering exemplar. She will provide instruction on creating a "step-out" process of creating decorative letters, which is fun and easy for beginners as well as those with more advanced skills. She will provide samples for inspiration as well as an enlarged Times New Roman font for tracing. Please bring a pencil, micron or Sharpie pens, washi tape, and a ruler. Optional supplies include a broad-edge nib/parallel pen so you can use your own lettering style and/or colored markers for adding details.


Free Afternoon “Open Studio” idea from Suzi Ickles
Bring everything you will need.   No fee, no registration!
This year the guild has enjoyed a lot of excellent programs/workshops. How about working more on one of those after our March program? It’s an opportunity for you to continue work on a past program/workshop that really spoke to you. After Cindy’s program we can gather from 1 to 4 in the Fellowship Hall to continue our personal creative journey. You can work on what you want, but consider the previous topics this year: Watercolor for Calligraphy (Sarah Pick), Pointed Pen Lettering (Jennifer Mauricio), Pencil Lettering (Jeanne Dittmann), Bookbinding (Virginia Green), Blackletter (Jane Stanfield), Doodle Lettering (Roxanne Glaser), Versals (Debbie Dutton). It’s a time for you to get out your tools and supplies of your choice! Bring everything you need. Let’s revisit the things YOU want to do.  And the room is a delightful place to work!

We could sit in groups by topic based on our individual interests. Or not. If someone wants to peruse our fabulous library, they can. Or even redo or start their name tag. Or bring something started at home that needs some suggestions.

Since there is no “teaching,” there would be no fee for those to stay. No registration form. Bring a lunch or go out to eat. No deadline to get back. Let’s make it easy for all! We already have the church reserved that day so let’s try this opportunity.
