July 2011 Newslsetter

Good day to you, ladies and gentleman!
Haven't seen you in a few months, but do intend to be there this Monday, July 25th at 7 p.m. for the meeting.
This will be a very brief letter due to minimal info to hand out. More next time. (Thank you, Cheryl, for your meeting notes!)
JULY 25TH MEETING: We will be discussing our upcoming show. Be prepared to come with suggested names for our show. (Don't forget that sometimes it's best to repeat the name so people begin to recognize that name with our work) We are also supposed to be thinking about a group logo. (I'm thinking about maybe a sparkly tiara! I mean...think about it...what do divas wear?) Anyway, those who have taken on specific portions of the upcoming show, please arrive with your notes that were set up after the last show. This show will be way more organized than last time, which we found is necessary. Flying by the seat of our pants will have to be a transportation choice no longer!
AUGUST 22ND MEETING: Zentangles (a repetitive pattern drawing art form that has applications for sewing) will be the subject du jour. Check out www.zentangle.com to be better informed than I am! (Okay, I peeked! It's basically pen and ink doodling in a creative way. Some of which would be very easily turned into free form quilting patterns, and way more complicated applique. Interesting, and the kind of thing that has had my interest for years.)
SEPTEMBER 26TH MEETING: Our very own Catherine Redford will be giving a coil pot demo. Check it out at www.catherineredford.com. Hit GALLERY, then hit WEARABLE, USABLE, AND OTHER 3-D ITEMS. Coil pots are number 3 in that portion of her gallery. Way cool!
THE POWER OF PLAY: Our current challenge theme is Power of Play. More on that next time. That's all I know about it. Power of Play. I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that it can be interpreted in any way you'd like. Don't quote me on that though!
OKAY, that's it until next time. We'll meet at 7 p.m. on Monday, July 25th at the Naperville Art League, 508 N. Center Street, in...waittttttttt for ittttttttttt...NAPERVILLE!!!!!!!! I know that was a surprise!
xxxooo, Laurie
