Message From The Chair

Dear Members,

If you are reading this, you are aware of exciting changes afoot in the NW Chapter. Sue Collard has created a user-friendly, real-time way for us to keep in touch. This site will help us share our work, news, and opportunities with each other.

Do you have creative solutions for those pesky bookmaking problems? I still love the article Roberta Lavadour wrote for the Bonefolder called “The Practical Bench”. In it she offered a method of attaching a pegboard to a computer keyboard bracket assembly, creating a moveable wall assembly for quick access when sitting. Brilliant solution! If you have technical tips or just a great idea, let us know!

The gallery is a great way for us to see your recent or in-progress work. Want to pose a question to the chapter? Have you discovered a great product or tool? Here is your chance to share.

This site is also a good way to announce exhibit opportunities or venues.

Another new development is the teaming of Shu-Ju Wang and Katherine Shiver Pomeroy as Workshop Coordinators for the chapter. They are working on ideas for upcoming workshops and would appreciate your input on what you want. Suggestions on workshop presenters are also welcome.

Many thanks to Sue, Shu-Ju and Katherine for volunteering to bring these great developments to our chapter. In the future, I hope we use this site to plan future meetings and elect officers. You may notice that the vice-chair position is open. If you are interested, please contact me.

I wish you a safe and peaceful Holiday Season.

Paula Jull
