Bobbie's News
Since the summer days are quieter, with time to chill and catch up on projects, why don’t you challenge yourself to send some pics of your work to Anne Lucic, our talented webmaster for PaperWorks?  Take a look at our Members Gallery and you will be impressed with the wide variety of works, but since we have over 200 members...YOUR work should be up there, too!  Whether you're a budding or experienced artist, please send a few pictures and a little info about yourself to Anne at webmaster@paperworks.info   Anne is working on a slide show of our group and wants to include everyone.   (This is also a good time to update your existing photos if you are currently in our gallery.)

PaperWorks is considering doing a Show & Sell this fall, but is looking for a suitable space.  If you have any suggestions, please contact Norma Galindo at ngalindo49@q.com

Have you been sending your postcards for our exchange?  Remember, at least three postcards over the summer, then the Big Reveal at our September 14 meeting!  Contact Sue Agnew, co-ordinator, with any questions:   agnew.sue@comcast.net
