June 25th

Meeting opened and business discussed.  Our dues are now due for this coming year.  $15 for the year.  Get your dues to Jennie.  Checks aren't a good choice so cash is preferred if possible.  It makes it easier to add to the growing account. 

Jennie has a date in November that she is having things offered up for sale somewhere.  She can be contacted for more info.  This is a great time to participate as a group effort.  Next meeting Pattie will be demonstrating transfers.

Apologies to all from Nancy.  I was recovering from dental surgery and just wasn't with it.  I would not call what I presented as a "demo".  It was more of a this is done, sort of how you do it.  I could do better and will if needed.  I just wasn't really in there!  Sorry about that.  I thought I'd be over it.  Left early and hit the bed.  Thank you for being understanding.  Love all of you.

Good tidings came from the Ashville retreat participants and apparently it was a blast.  Looking forward to another creative and productive year and considering the challenges that have been offered up earlier this year.  You haven't forgotten them have you?  Anyone have things in progress already?  If you need a reminder, contact Cheryl as there were pics of colors and textures to think about and ideas.

Attendees:

Cheryl, Lynn, Jennie, Maggie, Linda, Brian and Nancy (sort of......)

June 25th meeting:
Early reminder since we skipped a month.  June is a time to learn polymer embroidery.  Bring your usual tools and supplies.  Nancy will be showing/demonstrating some different techniques with tiny pieces of clay.  You will need to bring the following.  Small pieces of different colors of clay that will make a pleasing palette for your piece.  A needle to manipulate your clay with.  A base color that pleases your eye.  I prefer to coordinate my colors in advance so you may wish to do the same.  We'll practice practice practice and then perhaps put a full piece together.  I will bring some finished pieces that I've made and I expect we'll have a fun time.  See you there.
