December Meet-up 2016

Party!  There was a great turn out for the party and great fun forming ornaments.  Julie Eakes provided glass ornaments and cut pieces from some of her canes to use.  Many had made ornaments previous to the meet up and were showing off their goods.  There was tremendous skill and art shown.  Unfortunately I have managed to lose the pics and cannot share!  Breaks my heart!  Jennie took time to show a couple techniques to some of the girls during the meet up.  Jennie claims to be a beginner however she is quite skilled and if you missed her quick demo; please get with her and request a review. There were several give a way items and names were drawn and those lucky individuals went home with fab goodies!  Everyone had a good time that got to attend.  Food was prevalent and varied and everyone found something they liked.  Great job everyone!

Business:  January Jennie will be showing us all how to do Viking knit with wire.  She will provide what we need for this experience.  She did mention that if you have old credit cards, pliers, cutters, and 24 gauge wire this could be useful however she has pledged to see that we have what we need to learn this technique.  Two new members this month, Brian Woolweber and Michelle Efird.  Welcome and we are pleased you will be joining and participating.  February will be a meeting to make things for "The Forest".  Julie has taken this time and will demo what she has completed and how to go about making similar leaves I believe.  She says they need LOTS of leaves for this project. 

Attendees:  Robin, Julie, Pattie, Maggie, Cheryl-Ashville & Cheryl-Charlotte, Jennie, Christine, Lynn, Brian, Diane, Michelle, Laurie, Michelle, Brian and Nancy
