December Meet-up 2016

Party!  There was a great turn out for the party and great fun forming ornaments.  Julie Eakes provided glass ornaments and cut pieces from some of her canes to use.  Many had made ornaments previous to the meet up and were showing off their goods.  There was tremendous skill and art shown.  Unfortunately I have managed to lose the pics and cannot share!  Breaks my heart!  Jennie took time to show a couple techniques to some of the girls during the meet up.  Jennie claims to be a beginner however she is quite skilled and if you missed her quick demo; please get with her and request a review. There were several give a way items and names were drawn and those lucky individuals went home with fab goodies!  Everyone had a good time that got to attend.  Food was prevalent and varied and everyone found something they liked.  Great job everyone!

Business:  January Jennie will be showing us all how to do Viking knit with wire.  She will provide what we need for this experience.  She did mention that if you have old credit cards, pliers, cutters, and 24 gauge wire this could be useful however she has pledged to see that we have what we need to learn this technique.  Two new members this month, Brian Woolweber and Michelle Efird.  Welcome and we are pleased you will be joining and participating.  February will be a meeting to make things for "The Forest".  Julie has taken this time and will demo what she has completed and how to go about making similar leaves I believe.  She says they need LOTS of leaves for this project. 

Attendees:  Robin, Julie, Pattie, Maggie, Cheryl-Ashville & Cheryl-Charlotte, Jennie, Christine, Lynn, Brian, Diane, Michelle, Laurie, Michelle, Brian and Nancy

Just a quick reminder, there is no November meet up as it comes on Thanksgiving weekend.  We will be holding the Dec meeting on Dec 10th beginning at noon.  The plan is to come prepared to make ornaments, we should all bring treats/foods to share, as it is a holiday mood and we all love to participate in the party atmosphere.  See you there.

September Meet-Up

Business:  Items that you are donating to go towards funds for Queen City Clayers should be brought to Cheryl or Jennie at the October meeting.  Jennie has a table for selling purposes in November and has offered to display and try to sell these items.  She also has room for any thing you might want to try to sell.  Get with Jennie on the specifics.  October month is a time to bring whatever you might want to work on during the meet up.
November there will be NO MEETING. 
December is a party atmosphere and a list of what food items you might be bringing is a good idea for the October meeting, so there aren't duplicates.  This meeting will be a free time for visiting and at times we try to make ornaments as well.  Anyone who has participated in the challenge should show your pieces at this meeting.  Come prepared.

Fairies II was demonstrated by Maggie Westall.  There were some lovely fairies on display and in the works.  Great fun and thanks to Maggie for sharing with us all her knowledge.  Have you ever seen a fairy you didn't like!!! 

Attendees:  Maggie, Julie, Katie, Laurie, Marsha, Jennie, Cheryl, Annie and Nancy.

August Meet-up

Business:  We will meet on the 4th Saturday next month as usual rather than earlier as previously discussed/planned.  September meeting is scheduled for Fairy 2.  Maggie will provide her knowledge for us to finish, dress, groom our fairies.  October meeting will be a "free" to do whatever you are wanting to do with the group.  No demo is planned for this meeting.  No November meeting as it competes with Thanksgiving and plans.  December meeting will be a party atmosphere.  Bring foods, and drinks, (plates, eating utensils and cups are provided) bring your challenge pieces to show off if you have participated and come prepared to make ornaments.  Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't! 

Demo:  Maggie Westall gave a demo on how to begin to put together a fairy.  She provided examples, in process and finished fairies.  She gave instruction and direction and there was a lot of laughter and creativity happening.  It was a great turn out and there were great fairies in the process!  Legs, arms, bodies, heads, assorted pieces all over the place!  Fun!

Attendees:  Lynn, Kathy, Linda, Maggie, Virginia, Marsha, Nancy, Cheryl, Laurie and her Mom
