MINUTES OF JUNE MEETING
June 25, 2006


Claire led our meeting.
  In attendance:  Nancy Peterson, Jean Becker, Josie Addington, Justine Ozaki, and Claire Cronkleton.
 
Old Business
 
We discussed the calendar of events.  The rest of the year was scheduled:
 
  • July 30th and August 27th – Fizz handbags with Justine.  Bring stash cotton and novelty yarns.  Takes about 1.5 – 2 lbs to make one bag.  The July meeting we will select yarns, trade and purchase yarns to start the bags.  Nancy Peterson will have some starter material kits available.  The August meeting – we will continue working on our bags and get help with shaping and doing the handles.
 
  • Sept 24th – Sweater remake with Jean Becker.  Jean will bring a few of her “remakes” to show you what possibilities of what you can do to recycle a sweater.  Check out her remakes and see what sweaters you can find to remodel from your closet or Value Village.
 
  • October 29th – Claire will bring a turkey pattern, Jean a potholder pattern and Justine will bring a pumpkin container pattern.  These make nice hostess gifts.
 
  • December 3rd meeting – This will be our holiday party and bring patterns to share for quick “make it and take it” gifts.  Please bring a treat to share.
 
 
Our workshop was making name tags.  All of us experimented with needle felting.  Claire gave us direction and off we went.  Everyone had fun making little felted pieces.  Justine brought some cookie cutters and some tried felting in them.  The gals at the Fiber Gallery showed us their samples and help us out too.
 
Announcements
 
Thursday nights at the Fiber Gallery they have a drop in session for $5.  You can get help on any problem or learn a new technique.
