HBC Member Event Calendar

We’re working hard to improve our programs and make them both more enjoyable and interesting for our membership. We will no longer be holding the Board Meeting just prior to the program so that our monthly meeting will be devoted to activities both hospitable and interesting for everyone who attends. We also will be holding some programs and meetings on days other than our usual first Tuesday of the month so that many who have not been able to attend in the past can participate. And some of our initial events this year will be held in new venues as we try to make greater use of the resources of the Bay Area book community. Please mark these dates in your calendar and join us!

On Tuesday, November 13th, a stellar group of binders, Coleen Curry, Gillian Boal, and Dorothy Yule will be answering your questions or discuss a project(s) you are working on, including the binding project for our exhibition at the main SFPL in 2019.

Please join us for the evening. Members will have access to the arts room, the print studio and the bindery prep-room where the equipment and tools are. The equipment in the bindery prep-room include guillotines, board shears, Kwikprints, Scharf-fix, and nipping presses.

This is a working event, we will not serve food, but there will be mineral water, coffee and pastries in the SFCB kitchen. If you are early there are several eateries within walking distance of SFCB.

We are suggesting a $10 donation to SFCB, which can be cash or check.
