LIBROS Holiday Party

Another year has come and gone and it’s time for our annual Holiday Party.

As usual we will have a potluck of light finger foods and snacks, a showing of our books we have made, a gift exchange and this year we will add a philanthropy.

Things to bring along to the party:

  • Your potluck dish and any utensils needed to serve it.
  • Your gift exchange if you choose to participate, under $10, wrapped and book related.
  • Any book-related donations for the give away.

In the past the LIBROS group made small books and donated them to the battered women’s shelter. We would like to do something like this again.

Please if you have any scrap papers or cut ends, bring them along with buttons, beads and doo-dads for decorating small books. You will need a small kit and cutting mat to participate.

Glo is bringing paper for the covers. We can discuss while creating who we can donate them to. If anyone would like to bring crayons, pencils, craft items, etc. to donate as well that would be great. We hope to make about 20 small books.

We will also have details of the 2017 Collaborative Book:
Download PDF Guidelines.
Please bring cash or check for paper required for this project (Rives BFK, white, 250 gr.)

If you forgot to pay dues, it's not too late! $25 for a year's worth of fun, creativity, and beauty! Please bring a check to the meeting, or renew online via Paypal.
