Hello Katrina and Welcome to CSV!

My name is Cyrus and I'm one of the committee members in the society.
Look forward to seeing you on the 21st!

FYI, there is a library next to our meeting room, we have many calligraphy books for our members to borrow - FREE of charge, as long as you return them on time and in good condition of course. lol

See you soon, and welcome again.

I'll be there if I can!  I am pretty bad at making it to meetings, actually, but I'll try to get to this one.  I'll look out for you if I get there!  If not, Cyrus will take care of you, he's good people ;)

Thank you Moya and Cyrus. My husband Lex and I are looking forward to joining CSV. I hope to meet both of you at the meeting.
I'd love to borrow some books from the library that I haven't come across before :)

You can join anyway, and then at least you'll get the magazine?  Plus you could always come down for the weekend workshops. You're not missing a lot with the meetings to be honest - they are mainly administrative. It's the workshops where the fun happens.

Hi Saulyleeplans!  Yes there is, but only in the Brisbane area.  https://www.facebook.com/CalligraphersSEQld/ Calligraphers of South East Queensland :)

I also teach traditional copperplate classes in Brisbane every so often - my parents live there, so I visit a few times a year and sometimes hold workshops while I'm up there. 

Cheers
Moya
