Please make plans to join in the fun at The Folk School Fairbanks on Sunday, May 17, 2015, from 2:00-5:00pm, as they welcome us, the Northwoods Book Arts Guild, onto their beautiful campus! We are thrilled to now have a home base for our “Paper Birches” supplies, office, and studio, and can’t wait to put it to good use! This Open House is a family event, with lots of fun activities for all ages, and an opportunity to join the Guild AND The Folk School in fund-raising with terrific items open to bidding in our first ever Silent Auction! If you have items you could donate to the Guild, please contact either Susan Campbell, at email@example.com or Mary Maisch, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course, book arts related items would be prime, but other valuable and artful donations would also be most welcome. We are amassing a collection of pottery, hand-made books, silk, dyed, and hand-knit scarves, quality handbags, jewelry, and more! We are looking for donations of time and/or service, as well. People like to bid on canoe trips, yard work providers, special dinners, whatever wonderful skills you may have to offer! Contact us, too, if you would like to help out before or during the event. P-ART-tay!!!
