1:00 monthly meeting, Skills & Technology Center, 1305 19th Avenue N, Fargo

program: Ann Kaese                  The St. John’s Bible
The Saint John’s Bible is the first handwritten, illuminated Bible commissioned since the advent of the printing press over 500 years ago. This project has been the subject of a documentary on BBC Television and the Smithsonian and drawn the attention of media throughout North America and Europe. This lively and informative lecture will cover the methods (modern and traditional) used to produce this art work as well as showcasing some of the imaginative and original artworks. We will unpack many of the illuminations as you get a behind the scenes view of a project that most have said could never be done again by humans.

NEW! MORNING MEETUP, 11:00 to noon, in the lobby lounge at NDSCS. Bring some handwork, sit and chat with any fellow quilters who happen to be there. Have a quilting question? Somebody will have the answer.
