April 2017 Newsletter

Well, hello there one and all.  Spring is springing as only spring can.  My scilla's looked lovely, and now my red bud is in full bloom.  Life is good.  Eleven members at our March meeting, and it was nice to see each of you.  Thanks for joining us.

Heidi Parks' Class:

We have decided to go with Heidi Parks.  Plans are underway, and everyone will be notified when it's all settled.  At this point we are talking June 16th, 2017 at the Naperville Art League.  The art league will be handling everything for us.  The maximum head count for the class will be 20.  We already have 8 interested people.  If you are interested as well, you will need to work quickly with getting enrolled and your check in.  There will be a very small window before it's opened to the public.  At this point, we're hoping that the class will be around $50.  It will be a combination of lecture, slide show, exercises for us, and a lunch in the middle (your dime!).  (Design and color)
And that's all I have for now.  More later.

Challenge Color Update:

We are having trouble finding just the right green.  If you go to the previously listed website to try to match the "Greenery" color,...well, good luck with THAT!  With the backlight of the computer screen, it's going to be a cold day to get a match.  I tried printing a sheet from the site showing the color and a mug, tried to match it to a paint chip....  We gave up at the meeting, and decided to just go with a spring green.  So, get hustling, and get your crazy challenge on, folks!

Nature in Fiber Exhibit:

Nature in Fiber, featuring the work of our very own Sharon Malec is coming up!  Gallery 200 at

That's it for now.  Hope to see you at the next meeting, which will be on Monday, April 24th, 2017,
7 pm at the Naperville Art League.  $3 will get you in, and you get to see some fun show and tell, and share yours as well.  Enjoy this weather.
