Printmaking show was a success and I loved catching up with fellow members

that were part of the show.

Printmaking Easel

I've just recently started to get back printmaking and I wanted to share with you a valuable piece of equipment my hubby made me to help in my carving.

When not in use, it folds up flat for easy storing.
