Next meeting is Sunday, March 11, 2018, 3:00PM
Board meeting at 2:00PM
The board needs to be at the board meeting as we will be figuring out what needs to be done for the 40 West Show in July.
We had such a fun time at our last meeting. We played with fun ideas and watercolor inks. The photos are up on our facebook page. Please go there to check the latest news. Also, like the page and then invite as many people from YOUR friends list to come to our page and like it. This boasts our audience and gives us more credits on facebook. I have been, along with photos of members, have been adding some great videos and articles on glass that is being done around the world. Also, if you are in a show or get an award, please send me the info and I can post that to the page.
I am in a show, in Philadelphia, at the National Liberty Museum, in April. I will be flying out to the VIP opening and reception. This is a show about translating music to a visual in glass. Several people have made musical instruments and the Philadelphia Orchestra will be demonstrating these at the VIP reception. I will make a video of all of this and putting it on the facebook page.
At the next meeting in March, we will be making a clear, blown vessel and applying parts that we will make on a torch. This is a hands on demonstration and I hope you will all participate. I can bring some 96 rods to play with. If any of you have some 96COE anything, please feel free to bring it to add to the vessel. Wear cotton clothing and closed toe shoes. This is important.
We will also be talking about what needs to be done for the 40 West Show as I will be just getting back from Italy on the 9th of June and our meeting (and annual picnic) will be on the 10th. We need to start getting prepared so there is not a huge, frantic rush the first week in July. The annual picnic will be at Mike and Sandis on June 10, 2018, starting at 2:00PM. More on that later.
Member Karole Sharpe is moving to Detroit. Karole has been a looooong time member and she will be sorely missed. We will have a cake and a small celebration, in her honor, at the next meeting. Please, Karole, SHOW UP! We hate to see you go.
Hope to see all of you at the next meeting. it should be a lot of fun and a great learning experience even if you choose not to participate. Please remember to wear cotton. See you soon.
