The speaker this year was Pat Blair, chief calligrapher from the White house. She gave such a wonderful presentation with slides of examples of Calligraphy invitations dated clear back to Abraham Lincoln! I got to take three classes and reconnected with an old friend that I had not seen in over 20 years. Fabulous.

Letters of Joy 2011
This weekend I was so fortunate to attend the 29th Annual "Letters of Joy" in Edmonds, Washington. I have not been able to go for the last 3 or 4 years. This small, but mighty, calligraphy conference is wonderful. They bring in renowned speakers and offer a whole day of classes with a catered lunch and vendors! Calligraphy shopping, yipee!!
