March 27 Meeting

Hello members,

at our last meeting we cut out Texas and decided that 6” diameter would work well.
We will be working the display at our “business” meeting once a month, but you can bring it with you at anytime would you need help or advice or just to show it.
as a reminder
Forth Worth – Jeff
El Paso – Glen
Austin – Evans and Kim
Houston – Eddie
San Antonio – Mike
Big Ben – Olivier and Nathalie
Maddy -Amarillo
( i forgot if we had a volunteer for Lubuck)
The name will be embossed in 1/2” western set at the bottom of the shape.
Don’t forget that we will be presenting 6×6” square with your personal work at the Ifolg meeting.
Next week and the following weeks we will be working on a notepad holder (small or large)
For the small one (5×8), you will need:

13×9, 9×6.5 and 6×4.5 veg tanned leather for tooling
13×9 lining
There will be an inlay in the front 4.5×7
and back stiffener will be required too.
We don’t expect to do much more than cutting out the patterns next Monday, but just in case, you will also need
-basket weave tool
-beveller
-camouflage
-skiver
the note book can be laced or stitched.
p.s. if you are planning to do a bigger size notepad holder bring a larger size of leather (8.5×11.5 notepad)
I hope to see you all at our next meeting, Monday the 27th
Have a nice rest of the week and a good week end.
Nathalie
