Saturday July 19th BAC meeting!!!!
I'm reposting this to let all of you know that it will be a great
meeting with Janet Takahashi showing us some terrific stuff. Let's get
together and make it a really BIG attendance, huh?
The next Book Arts Connection meeting will be on Saturday, July 19th,
starting precisely at 1:00 pm. Don't be late or you'll miss some good
stuff. It will be held at Virginia Gardner's home, and Janet Takahashi
will be our guest. Janet will show us how to make a "Bay Window Card"
that she has developed. It's a folded card, upon opening would make
ideal invitations, hold a specific message, highlight artwork or a
Along with this card, Janet will show us a nifty technique of simple
foil embossing that creates images that can be used on the cover of a
card or book. She'll have many samples to show us as well as some of
her own work.
TO BRING: The usual desktop bookbinding tools, cutting mat, glue and
brush, pencil, ballpoint pen, tracing paper, card stock, decorative
papers, masking tape, glue stick and about a yard of 1/4" ribbon to
tie up our wonderful projects.
It sounds as if we're going to have some really terrific ideas
shooting around our heads! Here are the directions to Virginia's:
Exit #101 on Mission and go East, toward the Mts. for about 8 blocks.
Turn LEFT on Garden St. Her house is the 2nd one, #2014. There's a
famous metal dog out in front to greet us.
I hope you all will be able to come. Bring stuff to show-and-tell -
whatever you're working on lately, news of exhibitions, internet finds
or whatever you want to share. I'm hoping I'll be able to announce the
inaguration of our website then, too!
