If you’re local, please consider signing up for the free artist trading card workshop the Grand Rapids Craft Club is sponsoring on May 13. Space is limited, so e-mail me by Wednesday if you’d like to attend. Details can be found on my “Running with Needles” newspaper blog. If you can’t make it, download the pdf instructions to make your own ATCs at home.
