Minutes for COPCG Business Meeting: February 2011

Seven members and three guests were in attendance at our February meeting. Shirley welcomed Myra, Denise, and Rhonda, the three guests. She began the meeting with Show and Tell and members shared some fabulous clay projects they had made.
Because we have only email addresses for some, Shirley asked those who would like to add their address and cell phone number to our records. This will be helpful in times when more than an e-mail is needed.
**PROGRAM:**
Because of our presenter was ill, our “live” program on Kaleidoscope Canes was changed to a DVD on caning: Intricate Kaleidoscope Caning with Sarah Shriver. Since Lee Ann, April, and Ruth had previously viewed this DVD and followed the instructions, they were able to interject helpful thoughts and comments as we went along.
**BUSINESS MEETING:**
Jane moved the December 2010 business meeting minutes be approved. Angela seconded the motion. The minutes were approved.
Lee Ann made a motion to approve the January 2011 business minutes. April seconded the motion. The minutes were approved.
**OLD BUSINESS:**
Shirley, Jane, and Myra met at Hobby Lobby’s classroom on the 5th Saturday, January 29th. A great time was had by all! Myra has even finished the bracelet she started at the meeting.
Midwest City Library show is coming up in April. The display will run the entire month. Set up is scheduled at 1:00 PM on Sunday, April 3. Shirley contacted the library and confirmed there are a total of six shelves in the two glass displays.
The shelf dimensions are approximately 12 inches by 63 inches. The space between them is approximately 14 inches. It was suggested that a solid black background of fabric in both displays would work best to accent our work. This will also unify the two cases. Shirley asked Angela and Jane to work on the signage.
We need to see what we are going to display and figure out how to organize it. This will tell us what additional items are needed. Shirley asked all of us to bring the following to our March guild meeting:
1. Our display pieces.
2. Our displays (covered gift boxes or other covered cardboard boxes which are not too large, etc.).
3. Written information for each piece (your name, name of your piece, if any, and technique used).
In Penni Jo’s absence, Jane gave a report on the tentative April retreat. As of now, Penni Jo is trying to get in contact with a church that she is aware of that lets outside groups use their well-lit activity building. Until a facility is secured, the retreat remains very tentative.
**New Business**
Proposed New Office
Shirley asked about our practice regarding visitor following-up, an area that has fallen through the cracks. A membership chairman was suggested, and April offered to take the responsibility in the future. Her availability will depend on how her job works out.

COPCG Minutes Sept 14 2010

  • by

**1. Introductions / welcome guests**
We had two guests, Beth Baker and Christine Sawyer. Beth is a bead maker and was wearing a lovely necklace / earring set that she had made. It was decide that, during the time we each introduced ourselves to our guests, that we would briefly describe how we found polymer clay. Each story was different and so much fun to hear. We all fell in love with the clay and succumbed to it’s siren song.
**2. Show and Tell:**
PJ showed some of the things made for Sandy Camp. Angela showed two things: 1. A faux wood top for a business card case, the carving project for next month and the tool used for carving. (available for about $12.00 to $15.00 at hobby stores) These pretty cases can be sold or used by the maker. Note, if desired, the carving project can be used in anumber of ways. 2. Faux Enamel, the project for November. She showed a rubber stamp example that could be used as the base and starting point for the project. 3. She showed how a reverse stamp can be made from a rubber stamp that can be used to make Faux Enamel or even Faux cloisonne. Nance brought some great beads, beads and more beads. Lee Ann brought some fabulous Bottles of Hope, necklaces, and canes. Sue show her wonderful Faux Ivory set, neckace, earrings and bracelet.
**3. Program: Hollow Beads, Puff and Pillow by Jane**
We made 2 stretched puff beads. One bead was two sided stretched bead and the other was a single side stretch bead with a flat back and hanger. These two beads were baked and while they were baking she demonstrated making lentils on a light bulb, making lentils on a metal paint pallet and the blow up puff bead. An excellent lesson with many facets and techniques. Thanks Jane!
**4. Minutes:**
PJ read the minutes. The spelling of “Armitage” was corrected by Shirley. Angela moved to accept the corrected minutes, Shirley seconded, passed.
**5. Old Business**:
A. Penni Jo – discussion on proposed retreat in spring. A Friday all day and Saturday all day might be a good start. PJ will try to get hold of the church representative for possible dates.
B. State Fair: tomorrow is last day for deliveries.
Angela brought us our parking and entry tickets.
Sept. 19, 2-6 is our demo time. A note was taken of how many would be coming. We felt like there needed to be at least four people in the demo area at once for a good showing. Sue asked what we should bring. After our experience last year it was decided to bring the following: Flyers, clipboard with signup sheet, each member working can plan a small display of finished clay items, work supplies including work surface and a project(s) on which to work while there.
Shirley will take the banner home and bring both the banner and the screen to the demonstration.
We would like to have someone arrive around 1:30 for the setup and the other members arrive as soon as they can.
**6. New Business**:
Discussion on next year’s fair discription of the categories
a. 60% rule. What constitutes 60%. a variety of opinions. PJ was going to enter a mosiac box, but the box was more than 50% of the design. The same with a bell, the glass bottom was more than the handles, thus not qualifying. [A note from yours truly, Penni Jo. When we originally discussed this rule, especially in conjunction with jewelry, the thinking was — when making a necklace with a polymer clay pendant — if it was made using a lot of glass beads and showy wirework with the pendant as a part of the necklace, this overwhelming amount of non-polymer clay parts might cause a necklace to be awarded a ribbon for all the bead work with the polymer clay pendant only an element in the design. There is nothing wrong with awards for fabulous beadwork, but this is a polymer clay division and we wanted polymer clay to be the centerpiece of all our designs, not just an element in a larger, non-polymer design. Thus the 60% rule.]
b. The question was, should the rules be changed for next year? It was discussed and one member suggested that perhapss wording might be added “aside from the underlying structure or armature.” Many members expressed a positive response to this modification
c. Also brought up was a Mixed Media option. After a bit more discussion it was tabled for a later meeting. [Another aside: after the demonstration, Jane and I discussed the “Mixed Media” category idea. If so, then many other options are open to both the polymer clay user and the metal clay user. Also, picture frames, boxes, etc. etc.]
d. Another question, what constitutes a bead? Does it have to have a hole? from side to side? if from top to bottom is it a focal bead or a pendant? Do we need to add a definition of a bead to our description? Curious minds……
e. “Bead in” ‘s Pat Pierson has a bead group that meets every two weeks on the 1st and 3rd Monday from 5:30 to 8:30 PM. We are invited to join them.
f. Shirley brought us all the submission form for the Paseo’s annual container show. Thanks Shirley.
**7. Report from VP April: upcoming lessons or demos**
Oct – Carvings by Angela
Nov – Faux Enamel by Angela
Dec – Member ideas and or a something made using a lesson learned this year, bring a sample.
**8. Treasurer’s Report: Angela**
$608.38 in treasury
10 members
**9. Bottles of Hope: Nance**
We are all still working on them, keep bringing them in.
**10. New Book Report: Jane**
The new book is very good, even if it is not polymer clay. The flower construction is basically universal and has great instructions.
She also showed the new PolymerCafe Magazine. Angela’s art is in this issue.
**11. New book Drawing:**
I must have been asleep when the drawing happened, I have no idea which book was selected. Can some one please enlighten me? thanks.
**12. Raffle / Swap: This month was the Raffle**.
Penni Jo and Nance brought items for the raffle. Penni Jo won Nance’s beads and the works for a clay covered pen light. Shirley won Penni Jo’s tools and mold.
Next month will be the Swap.
**Next meeting will be on October 9th, 2010
at the Hobby Lobby Store in Moore, OK. **

Central Oklahoma Polymer Clay Guild Meeting August 14, 2010

**1. Introduce / welcome guests**
Our meeting began as usual with members visiting with each other while setting up for the meeting. We had a visitor: Mary Armegin. Welcome Mary!! Present were: April, Nance, Angela, Shirley, Lee Ann, Sue, Jane, and Penni Jo
**2. Show and Tell**
Angela showed pens made with canes. One is a Bic retractable. Lee Ann showed a pendant made made with a slice of the feather cane that she made last year while demonstrating at the State Fair. Jane had a giant paper clip made using the Ruphia bead technique. Nance showed the roses, leaves and flowers that she would be teaching today. April had a cool box of Kali canes that she is practicing from a Sarah Shiver book. Penni Jo showed her latest mold and a pendant and earring set made using the mold.
**3. Program:** Nance gave a brief history of the Japanese wood based clay that we would be using. She gave us each a tray and enough white and colors to create a rose, tiny lilac and leaves. We had great fun making tiny arrangements in the pots and bowls that Nance brought for the arrangements. Thank you Nance!
**4. Minutes**:
Penni Jo Read the minutes. Nance moved they be approved as read, Sue seconded. Minutes were approved.
**5. Old Business:**
Reminder of the fair deadline.
A. State Fair — Today is the last day and you can still sign up on line. PJ made a fair worksheet on which to list your items to keep track of your progress and remember which pretties to take to the fair. (she is old and forgetful, hence, the list). 🙂
State Fair Demo – Sunday, Sept. 19, 2:00-6:00 Our demo area will have two 8 foot tables in the same area as last year.
1. Ideas/Suggestion for Jewelry entry (and any other entry): We discussed a number of ideas, including
a. Jewelry displays for sale at Michael’s with a coupon.
b. Pin on ‘form’
c. Make an informative, nice stick-on or folded description of entry to be shown with the entry. Jane will have them made to describe the item. What is this? Is it cane, sculpted, purpose, and other info including the words “Polymer Clay” prominently on on description. We are to call or email info needed.
B. Penni Jo-Retreat update? She will call the church in question for more info.
C. Shirley has lined up our Guild to display at Midwest City Library in April, 2011
D. April is coming.
**6. New Business:**
Jane showed how projects “popped” on black backgrounds and suggested that we try to bring a display with our projects to the fairgrounds with our entries. It was amazing to see how showy an item looked on a black or dark burgundy background.
Members expressed some dissatisfaction with the way last year’s polymer clay items were mixed in with entries from other categories and felt that the polymer clay items were lost among many different styles and materials. Angela said she would ask if the fair managers need volunteers for helping with setups.
We discussed quarter sheet fliers for visitors to the demo to pick up with our guild info on the front and a list of polymer clay tools etc. on the back. There was a discussion that we research to have the quarter sheet handouts for demonstration day printed professionally. We would like 200 to 300 sheets and will take as many as we can get for about $25.00 or more for the printing, depending on whether color is prohibitively expensive. Even if it costs over $25.00, we need plenty of them so as not to run out. Any left over sheets can be used at Hobby Lobby to advertise our guild meetings. Members can discuss details and costs of color printing with the group through email.
NEW TIME: Since there is now a class just before us that ends at 1:00, we have agreed to move our meeting time forward on half hour to 1:30, going to 4:30. Shirley moved we check with HL about the time change. Nance seconded. Approved. Jane will check with management to be sure this time works for them.
NOTE: Angela encouraged members to submit their polymer clay work to Polymer Cafe’s Reader Gallery, as they are always looking for high resolution photos of good polymer clay work. If you send some of your flickr site links to Polymer Cafe they may write to ask you for permission and / or for higher res pictures to use in the magazine.

Also, the table needs to be rearranged for better display and viewing. In order to be part of the Art Festival next year, we need to have classes at least one center. Having classes with children and adults was discussed. If classes are taught for children then the center can supply the clay. Ruth – maybe develope kids programs in the centers.
