Member Playdates
CMMAG Members should mark their calendars for two playdates coming this fall.  The first is being hosted by Sharon DiGiulio of DiGiulio Studios in Raleigh on September 15.  Plans are still being finalized for what projects will be shared. 
A second playdate on September 29 at Chavis will feature old book pages and how to incorporate them into your art.  Linda is organizing this event, and she will have more details in the coming month. 

Meeting Demo
Peggy showed us how to use paper napkins to make tags.  She brought some examples from her extensive collection and let us those in attendance make their own versions.
