October 2 - Painting Scarves with Carol November 6 - Junque in the Trunk Yard Sale December 4 - Christmas Party
First of all, I would like to apologize again for my epic blunder at the September meeting when I forgot to bring the pattern and instructions for the project. Secondly I want to thank all the people who stepped up to make the day a success (in spite of me). Thank you Lynn, for all your work in ordering and obtaining the wood surface for us. And for removing and prepping the inserts for us. Thank you, Ellen, for not only your tireless work in keeping our club going, but for jumping in to paint the many inserts. Then, of course, thank you to Linda, for filling in for me to lead the meeting. As well as agreeing to lead the meeting in October when I will be gone. And I can’t forget Mary Banks who produced the whole tube of white paint I forgot! And that’s not all! Everyone deserves a round of applause for being such a great group of painters and for all the work, money and time you put into making our club a success. I could easily write down ALL your names. Many hands make light work! I have to miss the next meeting but you will all be safe in Linda’s capable leadership. Ronnie

We Have A Members' Gallery!!
Carol Hechler and Jeanette Seese have started our Members' Gallery at the WWSC. We hope you have had a chance to see it, but we still need more items to fill our walls. We are asking you to bring in art that you have done to show off your talent! If you want to try to sell it, that's an option.
We ask that you also provide a 3x5" note card or piece of paper that has your NAME, TITLE OF THE WORK (if no title, just write UNTITLED), the MEDIUM and a PRICE (optional). There are several shelves that can accommodate plates, boxes, gourds, miniatures, items needing an easel, etc. If we can get enough participation, we plan to rotate the artwork periodically. We hope you will contribute to a more "artistic" look to our meeting place!
