October meeting and September report

Hi Y'all,

At our September meeting we had 3 new people! Welcome Nancy, Mary Jo and Patty. Julie, Laurie, Cheryl and Maggie were there. Julie showed off some of her new works and a few pieces she traded for from other artist. Laurie brought her latest people sculptures. Cheryl did a great job demonstrating a method from Julie Picarello's new book. We all had fun trying it.

Please note that our next meeting will be October 29th (not the 22nd). It will be at the usual meeting place. We will be working on an elf type sculpture. This will be a 2 part demo to be continued in December if needed. I will post a supply list soon.
We will not be meeting in November because of Thanksgiving.
We will be meeting the 2nd Saturday (the 10th) in December. There won't be a scheduling conflict with the BRPCG meeting because they do not meet in December.
