Meet Syd, LSC Events Coordinator!

Syd Webb, Events Coordinator

Hi LSC – GBW members! I am looking forward to getting to know you all better. In fact, that’s one of the main reasons I joined the group, to expand my community and learn new skills. Kim, Catherine, Virginia and I are working together to plan some pretty fun events for the year. Thanks to Tish and Jeanne for all of the super helpful information they are continuing to share with us.

Thank you, Karen Hanmer, for an amazing workshop!

LSC Big Spring workshop: Contemporary Paper Bindings with Karen Hanmer was a success! We spent two days in the Texas A&M Preservations facility watching, learning, and making four beautiful paper bindings. Great space with a genuine Texas view.

The paper bindings included: German Stiffened Paper Binding (using a double-fan adhesive), Paper Case with Adhesive Attachment, Laced Paper Case with Unsupported Sewing, and Long Stitch through a Slotted Paper Cover (with a Yapp edge). We also had a tour of a selection of the Berger Cloonan Special Collection of decorative papers. Beautiful!

Perfect weekend to make books and have fun! Special thanks to Karen Hanmer, Jeanne Goodman, Kevin O’Sullivan, all the workshop participants, and Texas A&M Preservations! HOWDY!

2019 Valentine’s Print Exchange

Welcome to the 3rd Annual Lone Star Chapter Valentine Print Exchange online exhibit.

Lone Star members sent original prints in small editions to fellow members for Valentine’s Day. This year’s theme was Romantic Cities, and from the entries, it seems a number of Texans find boats to be romantic… Ah, Amore!

 

Nothing like getting original artwork, sharing the love, and getting mail! Join us again next year!
