Great March Meeting

March Meeting Minutes
  Well, well, what a day we had. All of you who didn't make it really missed out on the show and tell. There was some amazing art and Demo's. Laurie's brought her Leprechaun figurine, Julie a bird cane to share, Nancy's under construction Mermaid, PC wine glass, necklace. Last but not least Lynne O. had new Corgi pics and PC jewelry box. I if I missed something, I apologize now)
To everyone that Demo'd today thank you. Laurie P. demo'd Faux Turquoise, as well as had completed not one but two finished necklaces.  Pattie S. showed Faux Jasper with completed Cabochon. Beth W. Demo's Faux Lapis and then Nancy W. Demo'd Faux abalone, with completed cuff bracelet.
The last three demo's where Julie E. with Faux Opal, Cheryl S. did Faux Crackle Raku, and Maggie W. wrapped up with Malachite. All accreditation were given.
 Fun was had by all. A big Thank You to Jenny for donating a new clay oven to the guild.  We love it!
   Guild business was discussed. For April, Maggie will Demo Sculpted Fairy Doors.  And May's meeting since it falls on Memorial Week has been cancelled. We will resume on the 4th Saturday of June at our regularly scheduled time. The Demo will be on Pardo Translucency. We would also like to encourage someone to volunteer for the Secretaries and Treasurer position. Maggie and I could use some help running our expanding guild. Dues are also due in June.  Laurie P. is putting a Monroe order together. So, if you are needing to order any clay or supplies for BRPCG clay day in two weeks or for the Retreat, please contact her.
Well that about wraps it up. See y'all next time.

March Meeting

Hi Queen City Players!
This months meeting we are asking that everyone show a type of faux gem or faux surface Technique.  So far all I can positively confirm is that the faux abalone and faux malechite have been taken. Please post back to this and let everyone know what you have chosen so we can minimize duplication.
If you are unsure what you'd like to do. Go to YouTube and search polymer clay faux techniques. There are several techniques: faux. Turquoise, slate, opal, jade, enamel, lapis lazuli, etc.  Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.
Look forward to catching up with y'all on Saturday.
Cheryl
