Letter from the President

Letter from the President
I hope all of you are enjoying the summer as it marches towards cooler weather and for some of us more
routine schedules as our offspring head back to school.
Our August all-day workshop meeting was a great success because we had a record 13 members and guests
participating with two of the visitors being young women heading to college. They were somewhat
overwhelmed with the enthusiasm and activity of the members that brought mounds and mounds of materials
and supplies. Before long they were cutting, combining, gluing etc. There were plenty of mentors for them
to watch and learn from. All of us learned at least one new technique or use of some scrap. The swap tables
were piled high with many goodies.
Our upcoming exhibit at the Indian Prairie Library in Darien is our last scheduled exhibit of the year and we
have a judge who will be selecting award winners. She is Annette Perone Leiber, from the Addison Art
Guild. Annette is herself a mixed media and collage artist and tells me that if she weren’t already a member
of several art guilds she would be a member of the MCS. The winners of the library exhibit will be eligible
to participate in the 2009 Best of the Best exhibit.
We look forward to having you join us for the September outing to the galleries of River North. Mark it on
your calendar and note it is on a Saturday instead of Sunday.
Tania Blanco
President, MCS
