July 25, 2015 Meet Up
Business: Short discussion on upcoming meetings and demos. Jennie could not make the meeting as her cat is having health issues. If you need to pay your dues for this year wait for Aug as Jennie hopefully will be back and can take your funds. Julie Eakes showed new texture tools that she had purchased.
Demo: Maggie showed the group how to build a butterfly/moth lady pin. Part 1 of the demo seemed to go well and most left with a mold ready to be worked with for this project. Time flew by and all were busy with the building and baking. Next meet up will be the remainder of the lesson and hopefully we'll all walk away with fab pieces of art! Thanks Maggie for the great demo. Next meet up remember to bring your items you were working on and we'll be shown how to finish up and also there will be a quick & short show of how to use Angelina fibers with polymer as there were some that had not seen this done before. Nancy will bring the fibers and show you the basics after Maggie has us all cooking our pins.
Attendees: Maggie, Julie, Cheryl, Christine, Nancy, Linda, and Lynn
