Silent Scriptorium
Guided by Diane Reiter

Saturday's meeting was a delight on so many levels. President and Workshops Chair Diane Reiter reviewed SDFC’s exciting pending workshops and the lineup for the next meetings. I loved the quiet time for our first Silent Scriptorium. Everyone stayed absolutely quiet, very impressive (except for the occasional cough!).

I was able to write a few cards that were definitely overdue, and then onto some practice lettering. One of the pieces, a Connie Furguson idea of a colorful border, ended up as a cover enhancement on one of our three single page bindings that Diane taught following the Scriptorium.

Yes, Diane provided all materials from paper to pre-punched holes, needles and thread, etc., for three imaginative bindings. I am always impressed with Diane's teaching skills and her light-hearted approach. We learned a match-box binding, so clever and easy. It makes me aware of how important it is to see potential in everyday things. Then she presented another binding using two holes with a rubber band looped through a stick. Easy, fun, good looking, and practical. The grand finale—a stab stitch binding.

I had a good time because I was with friends and learned a few new tricks.

Thank you SDFC.
