PPFA members should have received their July CONNECT yesterday (July 14) - with beautiful images from Indian framers Manisha and Sajjan Bhatcar, whose chessboard project won an OPEN award in the PPFA International Framing Competition in January. Check out their gorgeous images of framed antique daggers, sarees, silver anklets, Mayan icons, ceramic masks, a paper-punched fan, and more.

CONNECT also includes an article and photos about our very own Framers Corner moderator Mike Labbe, and Andy Langlois, from Get The Picture Framing in Lincoln, R.I.; including how Andy's ARL Designs came into being.

You'll also find an article on the perils of preservation, by popular educator Hugh Phibbs, and much, much more!

If you're a PPFA member and did not receive your emailed CONNECT newsletter (sent via Constant Contact), email info@PPFA.com and Robin Gentry will help you. It's possible you need to update your email in our records.
