Join Us at our Next Meeting on Thursday, February 14, 2019

We meet September through May on the second Thursday of the month. All monthly meetings are held at the Faith Lutheran Church, 6600 Woodrow Avenue, Austin, Texas. Take the elevator and follow the signs.


We have an Early Bird session from 6:00-6:30, a social time from 6:30-7:00, and the program begins at 7:00 with a short business meeting and the program topic following immediately. Program topic lasts approximately one hour.


Our February program will be Creative Envelopes. It will be a hands-on round robin so come ready to be creative! Paula Webb will teach "Inspired by the Stamp", showing us how the postage stamp can be the jumping off point in design. Debbie Levin will lead a session on collage envelopes. Martha Cole will show different tools used in creating envelope art, including an envelope punch board, rolling ruler, light boxes, laser for guidelines, etc.


Supplies to bring: Please bring pens, markers, scissors and a small ruler. If you have extra blank envelopes in your stash, please bring those too! Our instructors will provide supplies but it's nice to have extras. 


You don't want to miss!

Welcome to Capital City Scribes!

CCS celebrates 35 years in 2018!

Capital City Scribes (CCS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to sharing in the appreciation of, and providing education in the art of calligraphy. Fostering both community and personal growth through the art of beautiful writing, CCS is open to all who believe in its purpose. 


Capital City Scribes started out as a search for a bottle of ink. Thelma Matthews carried ink at the University of Texas CO-Op East Book Store and in October of 1982, Thelma invited all the calligraphers she knew to attend an informal gathering at the bookstore. It was at that meeting and three follow-up meetings that Paula Webb, Thelma, Jeff Jeffreys, Nicholas Yeager and others began formulating the guild's purpose. The guild was established on January 11, 1983.


Thank you for your interest in CCS!
