October Meeting Notes

We're gearing up for the holiday sale on December 2nd. For those that want to sell items, bring your displays at the November meeting so we can go through our setup. Even if you don't want to sell items, you can help with the decorations at the sale. For those members that weren't able to attend the October meeting, you can still sign up to help set up or to sell items.

The bottles of hope can be started at any time now. If you have extra bottles, bring them to the next meeting. We'll collect bottles to distribute to the cancer center in April. That leaves plenty of time to do a couple if you want. Karen Palmer has small bottles that can be worn in a necklace if you are interested in doing a small bottle necklace instead.

Our bracelet swap is still planned to take place this meeting year. Work on yours and have them available at either of the next two meetings for swapping. The more that participate the better the event will be. One suggestion was that larger beads should be used for the blank bracelet so embellisment can be made easier. Any size bead larger than 11 would be appreciated to those embellishing.

At the December meeting we'll have our annual Chinese auction. Gifts should limited to $20. Some ideas include: books, stones, glass beads, unique supplies, finished holiday-themed items, anything "beady" that you think will be traded for.

We welcomed two new members--Gerry and Cat. Gerry does leatherwork and wants to learn to bead. Cat is a talented artist with awesome beading skills. We look forward to their attendance at our future meetings.

Have a great month! See you November 18th.
