Jan 26th

Meet up at Earth Fare location with a nice number of individuals to attend.  Business:  February meeting will be the Maureen Carlson class for two days.  This class must be paid in advance to Cheryl before attendance.  There are still seats available should you opt to go.  The class will be held at our previous location at the Blythe Construction office.  Regular meeting will not be happening.  There is expected to be a dinner together at a restaurant the Friday before the class.  The 22nd dinner will be open to all members even if you are not taking the class with Maureen.  This will give you the opportunity to meet Maureen and share a meal with everyone since we are not having the usual meeting in Feb.  Laurie is looking into the location for our dinner/meet up for that Friday night. Everyone is responsible to pay for their own meals.  Of course Maureen's meal will be taken care of by the guild.  Laurie will let us know where the location will be in a future notification. There are still a couple members who have not paid dues for this year.  The year goes from May 2018 to May 2019.

Maggie has been having issues with illness and could use any/all communications from all of us.  She is expected to be back home shortly.  Christine also has been having some issues with illness and may or may not be back home as of yet.  Keep them in mind and let them know you are thinking of them if you have the chance.

March meeting will host Linda giving a wire wrap demo.  The meeting will take place at Earth Fare.

Heads Up here; the meeting in April is on a different date than we normally meet.  It will be at the Earth Fare location and will be held on April 20th since the Blue Ridge Retreat is being held on the 25th-28th.

Laurie gave an awesome demo of doodle flowers.  She told us every step she takes to create her goodies.  She also had a couple bowls to view using these methods.  Excellent demo and she also gave us clues where to find tools she used and of course we all were in awe of the footie material she had used for her texture.  Excellent information and a wonderful and very informative class.  Great chance for everyone to express themselves using easy methods to create fantastic pieces.  Thanks Laurie for taking the time to provide so many displays and choices.

Attendees:  Linda, Cheryl, Laurie, Sally, Bridget, Nancy, Pattie, and newest member Laura.

January 26, 2019 noon - 4pm
This is my first post as Queen City Clayers new co-president as of January 2019. Sally will share the office with me. Our first meeting of the year will be at a new location.
Our new meeting place is in the community room of Earth Fare in Charlotte, 12235 N. Community House Road. This location is in the Ballantyne area of Charlotte just off Johnston Rd. If you are traveling on I-485 you will take Exit 61(A) Johnston Road towards Charlotte. Then turn right onto N. Community Rd. at the first traffic light. If you would like to enjoy lunch and social time before our meeting (12:00-4:00), please come around 11:30 and choose from a huge array of food choices. We can eat in their dining area and then members and invited guests can go into the community room for our guild demo and meeting.
At this January 26th meeting, Laurie will demo "Doodle Flowers in Polymer Clay". She asked that we bring:
Regular Clay kit
4-5 conditioned clay colors
Cutters of all sizes from small to large
pan pastels
Paint Pens (e.g. Posco and Sharpie)
A happy, playful attitude.
I look forward to seeing you.
