Next Meeting 9/21/2010 at Tamarack Nature Center in White Bear

Hi.  Welcome to our new members!  Our next meeting is this Tuesday, September 21st, at the Tamarack Nature Center in White Bear.  We will meet at 5:30 for potluck and 6:30 for the meeting.  The address is 5287 Otter Lake Road, off of hwy. 96, very close to 35E.  Google Tamarack Nature CenterMN, for a map.

Things to remember:

Bring a nature-themed quilt for our exhibit at Tamarack starting mid-October.  It should include a hanging stick with holes on each end.  Be sure your name and the name of the quilt are on the back.  If you prefer to wait and give your piece to Nancy Mambi or John Stein at the Textile Center, please have it to them by Oct. 8th.  The exhibit will run through November.

Bring white paper or a sketchbook and a soft lead pencil or #6 ebony pencil.  Karen Wallach will lead us in a short sketching session, using the displays at the nature center as our subjects.

Bring show and tell.  Word is spreading how great the show and tell is at our meetings so you don’t want to be left out.

Bring food to share.

Cyndi Kaye has proposed a challenge to us all.  She is trying to get the blog to be a regular stop for people so she is asking you to leave a comment on her query on the blog.  Those who do so by Tuesday morning will be entered in a drawing for a set of six iridescent paint stiks.  That is a huge prize!   The address is  

In November the meetings will go to Saturday mornings for the winter.  The next meeting is November 20th at the Textile Center.

See you this Tuesday!!  Susan Stein


  1. Can't wait 'til the nature center event tomorrow. It's been years since I sketched, so it will be a good reminder of how much I enjoyed doing that. I don't know about a #6 pencil--think my softest is #4 or 5, but I'll look. Maybe a visit to Dick Blick wouldn't be a bad idea anyhow.
