tuesday, 10.14 meeting

At our last meeting we had a great demo by Jenn where we learned how to make an easy bayonet clasp. If anyone wants to look at the sample she made again, it's in the metals club cabinet.
We also went over our new box of tools! We got some great new stuff and it's all in the metals club cabinet for paying members to use. Lizzy went over the use of these new tools at the meeting, but if anyone feels unsure or wants more instruction in using these tools, feel free to ask any of the officers.
The Philly Craft Show is the weekend of November 14. The metals club has a budget to pay for up to 12 members stay in a hotel for a night. Please email Lizzy as soon as possible if you are interested in attending this trip. Her email is We would go up on the 14th and stay over night and come back the 15th.
So, unfortunately, the metals and jewelry club did not get into Holiday Heap. Thanks, Jo for collecting all the info for it.
Our next meeting will be Wednesday, October 22nd at 6pm in CA2015. We will, of course, have pizza for everyone. April will also be doing a demo on patinas. Hope to see you there!
