The April Meeting was a full house!  We had about 20m members and guests and all of us were treated to a superb video talk by Garland Stonestreet about Maki-E pens and how they are made.   The process is fascinating and the videos showed the history of this ancient skill as well as how it is applied to pens.

Some members brought in their examples and here is a photo of a few of the many Japanese pens that were shared.

Thanks to all who attended and especially the new attendees!  We hope to see everyone on May 17!
