Welcome to Hemel Hempstead Scribes
A friendly group of people
who meet every Friday from 11.30 am -

The Graceful Envelope Contest
The Washington Calligraphers Guild run an annual contest together with the National Association of Letter Carriers in the US. Follow the link to their web site for more information and fantastic inspiration.
There is no entry fee and this year's theme is "A World of Change" with a deadline of February 25th 2013, so there is still time to submit your entry. Decorated envelopes make a very achievable short project, are great fun to make, and are much appreciated by the recipient and postman alike.
This week's picture of HHS members work shows how a practice piece can easily be turned in to a practical item. this book mark has a ribbon threaded through a hole with a punched eyelet to protect the laminated paper. Quotation from Lily Tomlin.

this absorbing art-form.
