2014 May Meeting

The May Meeting will be held at East Bank Regional Library on May 10th.

The meeting time is 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM.

It’s hard to believe that another year has flown by!

    This month were are happy to have Gina Cox demonstrate the                  “Miracle Wedge Brush“.

This is the same brush used by White House calligrapher, Pat Blair, at an IAMPETH round robin last year.

Gina will show us how to make beautiful flower designs that can be combined with the Pointed Pen techniques we learned at previous meetings and the Kathy Milici workshop.

If you don’t have a Miracle Wedge Brush don’t worry.  Gina will set hers up so that everyone can try their hand at it.

Since Mother’s Day is May 11th she will have mat board in various colors and sizes along with some Mother’s Day quotes that everyone can use.

If you would like to make a card bring your favorite paper or card stock.

Materials List



White ink or gouache

Your favorite pointed pen nib & holder
