OUR NEXT MEETING

We meet the 4th Saturday of the month at 12 noon. Due to the Holiday we meet the second Saturday of December. We will post if a meeting is cancelled. Contact the guild for directions.

Sunday, November 13, 2016

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

July Meet Up

Business:  Dues are due.  Many paid the year's dues to Jennie.  Dues are again $15 for the year.  Challenge was reviewed.  There is a challenge to use pics or colors related to some pics chosen earlier or to just challenge yourself to do something that you don't normally do with a piece.  It was decided to extend the deadline to the December meet up where everyone can show off what they made.  Since the Dec meeting is usually a party atmosphere, that works.  Dec meeting will be held the 2nd Sat of the month of Dec since Blue Ridge normally does not have a meeting in Dec.  Blue Ridge is invited to come join us.  Bring treats and possibly supplies in case we work on the ornaments that sometimes happen! 

Next month, August and also September will be a fairy session.  Maggie has graciously taken on the task to spend time with all and direct us to a tiny fairy.  We are expecting that it will take a two meeting session to get your fairy completed, dressed and winged.  Less time if your familiar with the face sculpting perhaps, and molds will be available for the face should you not want to even go there.  Some of us are gluttons for learning and getting it done free hand, so that takes a bit longer!  Supply list will come later.  Maggie is already working on getting these lessons together.  Thanks Maggie for your wanting to share with us all.

Lesson/Demo:  Transfers by Pattie. We were all supplied transfers to work with and we had an excellent demo on how to use these transfers and we all set off running.  Beautiful things happened!  Hopefully next meeting everyone will bring their pieces finished for us to ohhhh and awwwww over!
Thank you for Pattie for giving us an excellent lesson and supplying us all with several transfers so we could practice, practice, practice. 

Attendee:  Cheryl, Maggie, Lynne, Laurie, Nancy, Jennie, Christine, Pattie, Marsha and a newbee Virginia.
