The Yuma Symposium is comfort food for hungry artists.
The presenters come from around the country to share their work; and like a potluck with great friends you know it’s going to be good. We bask in the warmth of Arizona’s winter sun while forming bonds that may last thirty years or more.
Join us for our thirty-first year!

2. Check that the glue gun is hot enough before you start squeezing it. Do not put too much glue on the back just enough to secure the metal pin back. Make sure that you have it facing the right way or it will be much harder to wear it. I did all the backing to my pins at the same time as not to worry about it later on. And to put the hot glue gun away.
3. I take out all the stuff I might use on the working surface so I do not have to get up once I get started. I have more materials than I need just in case I decide to switch it up a little bit.
5. Since this is a small working surface, less is more. Do not put more than3-4 different things on the pin , otherwise it will lose its spontaneity.
6. On some of the pins , I used the words as final accents.
7. Enjoy the process and find someone to trade your pins with. Build your own collection. I found a cute box to store them , facing each other two at a time.
