Handicraft Overview for 2007

Focus: Photography

As a group we are going to work on photography this year.  You are welcome to do any kind of photography that you like, but we do have a monthly focus that you could try.  Whether you are a beginner at photography or a pro, let's have a good time learning to use our cameras.  You may want to improve your photos for scrapbooking, or you may want to learn to photograph people, or nature.  Just start with the knowledge you have now and learn a little bit more each month.  You may not be ready to start with the monthly focus at first.  Just jump in when you feel ready.

Here are the monthly focuses:  (you can share your photos with the group if you would like)

January:  Portraits: family members 
February: Still Life: food
March: Nature: birds/animals
April: Architecture: homes
May: Nature: trees
June: Still life:  furniture/household objects
July: Nature: flowers
August: Architecture: bridges
September: Nature: sunset/sunrise/clouds
October: Black and White & self-portrait
November: Still Life: books
December: Christmas - anything goes

Optionally, you could choose to work on a different or additional handicraft of your choice.  A list of possible handicrafts are: sewing, quilting, crocheting, knitting, calligraphy, cross-stitching, embroidery, hardanger, latch hooking, plastic canvas, drawing/painting, braided rugs, rubber stamping, candlemaking, soapmaking, weaving, scrapbooking, cake decorating, floral arranging, macrame, stenciling, doll making, beadwork, and/or quilling.

You will find some book and resource suggestions for all these handicrafts on our Extra Reading/Resource List for Handicrafts as we develop it.
