As planned, a large group of Transit Traders met beforehand at Northside Eatery for a delicious lunch!  We highly recommend the cuisine and hope to return soon!  Thank you to Nancy D. for the recommendation!

For the meeting, 12 Artists were present; we had 1 Guest.  8 Artists traded.

Several announcements were made, including some changes in the members' status.  We will miss you Karen; we wish you luck in your future art endeavors!

We did a Show & Tell of ATCs using the Washi Tape techniques from Sue's demonstration.

We also did a Blind Trade of the 2016 Theme : Countries followed by our regular trade and JAMS.

Lisa did a demonstration and workshop of using melted crayons.  Thank you Lisa!

Linda volunteered to do the next demonstration and workshop using the Cuttlebug.  Thank you Linda! If you have a Cuttlebug (only, not a different brand of a die cut machine), please bring it.

The next meeting is not going to be on the third Saturday of the month.  To avoid interference with the Art Show, the next meeting is on Saturday, July 9th, 2016.
