Mosaic Garden Tour

At our last meeting, we determined that there is strong interest in a Guild tour of Wouterina De Raad's Mosaic Garden in Beldenville, Wisconsin.  I've spoken with Wouterina and she's very excited about the prospect of our visit.  She agreed that July is the best month to come.    We've tentatively scheduled the tour for July 23 at 10:00 AM.  Wouterina wants us to come at this time, as the light gets too flat later in the day.

The garden is located in Beldenville, WI, which is 45 minutes from downtown St. Paul.  As we get closer to the event, we can start communicating about some potential car pooling.  At this time, I need to get an estimated count of how many would participate in the tour.  Wouterina requires ten people minimum.  The cost is $5 per person.  At this time, please let me know if you think you can attend by clicking on the "comment" button below.  I'm also posting a few photos of the garden to give you an idea of what to expect.

June Meeting Date Has Been Changed to June 22

I live in a homeowner's association.  All of our driveways and sidewalks are going to be replaced in early June.  There are 44 homes here, so things are going to be a bit chaotic.  During this time, I will have to park my own car one block away at the golf club.  Parking will be challenging and then there will be the problem of getting to my front door as the sidewalk will also be under construction.

Due to all of this, I've gotten approval from Gil to change the date of the June meeting to June 22.  I would like to host the June meeting as some of you have expressed interest in seeing my flower gardens.

The program and agenda remain unchanged: Travel Night and, of course, final discussions about the Edina Art Center Show.  I hope the date change doesn't cause any problems for any of you.  I'm really sorry to do this, but there will just be too many obstacles on June 8.

Postcards for the Edina Art Center Show

Thanks to Judy Sell,  the postcards for our show at EAC are now printed.  The cards are beautiful!  The mosaic piece on the front of the postcard is by Julie Reeve.         .

Starting this coming Thursday, May 12, the cards will be available for pickup at Mosaic on a Stick. You may use the postcards for invitations.

I've emailed a digital copy of the postcard to members if you would like to send out electronic invitations.
