General membership meetings are held five times per year:

September, November, January, March, May

 on the second Monday of the month (unless otherwise advised)

The guild is planning to keep to our regular schedule of General Meetings. We will continue to meet virtually, via Zoom, and we are considering how and when to organize hybrid in person and virtual meetings so that those who live near and far can attend and participate. We hope that  you will enjoy the fun instruction we have planned!

As they say…Zoom is the next best thing to being there!  

Stay tuned to your e-mail or to this page for more information. 


The Next General Meeting will be on

Monday, March 11, 2024, 7 - 9 pm EST via Zoom, featuring

Lily-Yee Sloan

An Artist's Journey: The First 40 Years

Join us for Lily’s slide presentation featuring personal stories about the people and events
that have shaped her as an artist. She'll talk about her growth as a calligrapher,
share lessons from the stumbling blocks she's tripped over, and discuss tips for staying motivated.
Whether you're starting out as a calligrapher...or you've been lettering for years...
or you're stalled, we hope you'll find something in Lily's story that speaks to you and sheds light for the journey ahead.
