June Meeting

June 27, 2015 Meet-Up

Meeting called to order. 

Business: Dues are $15 for the year and due in June.  Next meet up will be a demo from Maggie on the moth necklace.  It may actually take two meet ups to complete.  You will need to bring Kato Black 2 packages for this adventure and you will also need some scrap clay to make your mold.  There may be other things you will need to bring as well but Kato clay is required for the final moth so prepare early on. 

For those who updated your address and contact forms a new listing will be available at the July meeting.

A big welcome to Delores who has decided to join our group.

Today's demo was given by Jennie on Kumihimo.  What a great lesson.  Jennie supplied all that was needed to learn the method and even brought supplies in case we wanted to make purchases.  We learned the basic method and also how to add beads and finally how to finish our pieces.  Everyone was busy at the meet up and the time flew by.  We all learned plenty and there may be a bit of carry over to next meeting in case more finishing needs to happen.  Jennie has volunteered to be available for help to do the finishing next meet up if needed.  Thanks Jennie for carrying all that stuff for us and providing us with instruction and items to purchase if wanted. Bring your finished pieces to show next meet up! 

Attendees:  Jennie, Cheryl, Maggie, Nancy, Laurie, Linda, Patti, Julie, Delores
