March 2008 Meeting Notes

Seven members were present at our March meeting, along with two guests, Diana and Teresa. What fun we all had, as April Salcedo showed us how to make several types of canes using the extruder. Everyone was pleased to learn how much easier caning can be, using this tool. There were some beautiful results to take home and use in projects. April provided some excellent handouts.
We held our first raffle to benefit the library fund, and it brought in $16.00. Angela, April S., and Nance donated mold putty samples, texture sheets, a book, and a necklace. Raffle winners were Angela, April S., April G, and Nance. As we discussed in February, this month’s winners will bring the items for next month’s raffle.
The schedule for future meetings is:

**March 29**: Play day hosted by Angela. Bottles of Hope will be discussed.

**April 12**: Articulated Teddy Bear with Nance

**May 10**: Inro Box with Penni Jo

**June 14**: Rubber Stamping Effects with Angela
**During the business portion of the meeting we discussed the following items:**

**Treasury and Membership** – Angela announced that we now have twelve members. Our treasury balance is $312.15.

**Dues** – Because member points are awarded for service, we voted to make our membership year coincide with our administrative year, for easier accounting. Those whose membership renewal falls due before next January will pay a pro-rated amount. A full year’s dues will be collected from all members next January.
The library drawing was held as a raffle this month, with the winner choosing our next purchase. *Stamping Effects in Polymer Clay*, by Sandra McCall, was chosen.
Angela reminded the group of contest deadlines she had previously forwarded by email from the National Polymer Clay Guild. The deadline for Bead Dreams is April 14 and for Fire Mountain Beading Contest, April 15.
It was announced that is offering a free disk about Pro-Sculpt Clay with a dual order of art doll books.
