Business: Next meeting Linda will show us some wire working techniques. She will bring some things for us to work with. If Jennie is back in town on that date she will also show us some more kumihimo techniques. There will be NO meeting in November. December meeting will be the second Saturday in Dec rather than the usual date. We will plan for ornament tutes and pot luck.
Julie brought a display of her collected mini bowls that she had received through a swap at a meet up. They were fantastic. She also showed us some items she had brought along in her bag of tricks that she'd made previously. Julie surprised us with a box of goodies to share and we all got to partake and enjoy. Thanks to Julie for sharing with us.
Demo today was presented by Cheryl on a Sandra McCaw technique to make an ikat technique and use it for a beautiful leaf design. Cheryl did a wonderful job showing us the techniques to use and she brought many displays for us to admire. We left with fabulous ideas and many of us completed our ikat cane as well. We are hoping to see finished products at the next meet up. Most of us were letting our newly constructed canes rest when the meeting ended. Thanks to Cheryl for taking the time to make the display and show us how to make this awesome project.
Attendees: Cheryl, Maggie, Nancy, Patti, Julie, Laurie, Lynn and a newcomer by the name of Judy.

It's time for our next monthly meeting. We will be working on a multi-mixed Skinner blend using Sandra McCaw's technique from the Book Polymer Clay Master Class.
Basic clay kit, flexable blade, conditioned one packet of white, ecru, and three or four other colors that will mix and not make mud when combined. Lastly a texture swatch of fabric.
Well that's all I can think of at the moment. See ya'll on Saturday, have a great week!
