The program after the May 23rd meeting will be a unique Colored Pencil Pansy Bookmarker. This is a pretty corner bookmarker with ribbons and beads attached. If you have never done colored pencils before, this is a good chance to try a new medium. Colored pencils are very portable. You can carry them with you anywhere you go. They are not messy. All you need are a set of pencils, a good pencil sharpener, erasers and paper, not having to worry about messy liquids such a turpentine or water. The cost of the class will be $5.00 which includes 2 bookmarks, bookmark template, pansy pattern, ribbon and beads. Anyone interested in taking this program please email firstname.lastname@example.org for complete details
