9:00 a.m. Early Bird, Kati Searcy, Presenter
9:30 a.m. Italic Boot Camp - Tone Your Italic, Ellen Mott-Jablonski, Presenter

The drought was definitely over based on the rainstorm that prevented so many members from attending the February meeting. And they missed two wonderful presentations!

Our Early Bird presenter was SDFC Membership Chairperson Kati Searcy who led us through the steps to create a card with a stencil  and correct-tape mask. Color was added with cosmetic sponges and rubber stamp ink - all stuff many of us have sitting around unused at home. We look forward to more of these quickie yet informative sessions.

Our well-prepared SDFC Vice President Ellen Mott-Jablonski (right) led us in a review of basic italic letterforms, good for both new and more experienced calligraphers. We left with a bundle of handouts and hours of practice.
