Shirley opened the meeting by welcoming us and our return guest, Alex, Tom’s daughter.
The guild received a Christmas card from the Midwest City Library.
The American Craft magazine included an article about polymer in the Oct/Nov ’11 issue. Shirley will send a link for the article. The magazine is only available by joining American Craft.
**Show and Tell included the following:**
April showed two mixed media necklaces. One had silver turtles with liquid polymer and glitter. The second had a silver shell, pearl and glitter mixed with hobby sand and held together with liquid polymer. Both had beaded chains.
Myra had lavender beads with chrysanthemum canes
Penny displayed a badge holder finished with the embroidery technique she taught to the guild.
Lee Ann made a Myra inspired pendant necklace with grommets and bulls eyes canes.
Lee Ann taught how to make a wood grain cane. We used the slices to cover stick pens. Several people tried using different colors for a variation of grains. The slices can be used to cover a form and have a very realistic “wood” box.
This month’s winners were: Jane (won Kay’s), Angela (won Stacey’s), Penni Jo (won Lee Ann’s), and Kay (won Penni Jo’s)
**Next Month’s Swap**
The February swap theme is Valentines.
The next meeting will be Saturday, March 10, at the Hobby Lobby in Moore.
