Connie Farrell, our new president, called the February, 2020, meeting to order. The meeting took place at Betty Bolerjack’s house once again. Six members were present along with one visitor. Penni Jo, Lee Ann, Tom, and Jane brought items for Show and Tell.
Lee Ann taught us how to make molds of virtually any shape container which can then be made into a decorative polymer clay container by adding layers of clay to the inside and out of the mold along with any other embellishments desired.
The minutes for the January 11 meeting were approved. Tom made the motion and Lee Ann seconded. Our secretary is still not able to be with us, so Betty agreed to record the minutes this month. Katherine is unsure how much longer it will be before she can rejoin us. We need to find a new secretary. Any volunteers?
Penni Jo shared the info on programs for the next three months. Betty will teach how to make roses in March, April is our retreat, and we will have a “Let’s Finish It” time in May to finish any projects that we weren’t able to complete at our retreat or other projects that you would like to work on.
Lee Ann gave the Treasurer’s report. We have 16 paid members for 2020. Betty moved to accept the report and Penni Jo seconded. The Treasurer’s report was approved.
Jane brought the 2019 Polymer Journeys to be placed into the library. Polymer Arts Project – Organics has not yet arrived.
Tom reported that we have 18 registered for the retreat. Seven of those have not signed up for the classes. Angel has received some gifts from sponsors. These include Basket Market and Tinker Federal Credit Union.
Connie discussed getting more exposure by doing demos at places like the Yukon Library as well as holding classes for the public at Hobby Lobby in Yukon. We will discuss this more in-depth after we again have a permanent place to meet.
The winners of our January drawing were Angel, Connie, and Tom. They will need to bring bags for our next drawing in March.
Our next meeting will be on March 14, 2020, at Betty’s home.
