Hi Sylvia! Wanted you to know that I 'm teaching an one-day Retreat in Lubbock, TX on August 10th. The Lubbock Gourd Patch is putting it on. I'm teaching two classes: Faux Leather Tooling (burning) and Chello Cactus Vase (power carving). To see the photos/descriptions of the classes, please visit my Classes page on my web page (www.paintingsbyhellen.com). If you have any questions, please email (email@example.com) or call (817-907-3320) me. I will do my best to answer all your questions and put you in contact with the coordinator.
Las Cruces is 359 miles from Lubbock which is a 6 hr. drive which is what I'm driving. I noticed another gourder lives in Las Cruces. Maybe both of you can ride together and share a hotel room. Call it "Ladies Weekend Out." ;o)
Welcome to Gourd Art Enthusiasts. I have been a member for almost a year and have found it to be a well managed site. Those in charge seem to do a great job. The photos are so inspiring and the communication is great. I do mostly woodburning but enjoy carving and plan to explore other media. My wife and I are retired school teachers and are happy to have time to pursue our crafts. Once again welcome.
Welcome, Sylvia. We’re glad you’re here. There are many activities and discussions in which you may want to participate. Look around and join in. Add some photos of your own, but please no more than 25. And have fun! The GAE rules are located on the right side of the main page. Darlene
