Our homework for January is to use our lettering skills, plus any artistic abilities we have, in creating an envelope for the the Graceful Envelope Contest.  You will find all the information concerning the contest below.  Remember, that there is a little prize for everyone who completes and displays the homework assignment at our February Meeting.

Just a Note:  Please do not be intimidated by the work you see from other calligraphers around the country.  Remember, only the winners are displayed, and you do not have to enter the contest.  You just need to produce an envelope and display it at our February Meeting!  We hope you will consider entering the contest, however!


Calligraphers everywhere are encouraged to enter the Graceful Envelope Contest. Deadline is March 26, 2018 and there is no entry fee. 
This year's theme: Whatever the Weather
There's always something to say about the weather. From severe storms to sowing crops to using the sun and wind for renewable energy, the weather affects everyone. Summon a brainstorm to capture what’s outside your window—or outside the box—and design a winning envelope!
The 24th annual Graceful Envelope Contest, conducted by the Washington Calligraphers Guild and the National Association of Letter Carriers, urges artists to "find new ways to use hand lettering, graphic design and postage stamps to enhance your entry. It may be a small canvas, but you are capable of big ideas."
