July Newsletter, 2009

Hello, ladies!  It's a beautiful day, blah, blah, blah!  Life is interesting and ever so busy.  So, I am going to make this short but sweet.

NEW MEMBERS:  There are five of you out there, thanks to our fiber arts show held at the Naperville Art League.  Your names will be withheld for your own safety.  Little did you know that there is a price on the heads of all our members.  (Did I say I was going to make this short?  Ha!)  Welcome, ladies.  I hope you enjoy the group,...we are a wild and wacky bunch. Many of these new women admitted to being dabblers!!!!!!!!  I wanted to tell them about the weekly meetings that we have,...dabblers anonymous, but I didn't want to give them the wrong impression.

DONATIONS OF SEWING ITEMS: Stephanie is looking for donations of sewing items (doesn't need a rotary cutter) for so that she can give sewing lessons to a girl she knows.  Fabrics, cutting matt, etc.  I think the girl is foreign, but I have no brain and forgot to write that part in my notes.  Duh!  This getting old stuff is for the birds, not the secretary!

RED CHALLENGE:  Some items were shown.  Fun!

NEW CHALLENGE:  The word dujour is MEAT.  Take that word anyway that you'd like, as in any homonym.  Meet, meat, oh, the list just goes on and on.  Any size, any medium, and yes,
this is once again, an optional challenge.  DUE AT THE OCTOBER MEETING.

LACE CHALLENGE:  Doroth Larsen was offered the chance to go through a box of "supplies" that the art league was getting rid of.  She chose a "bolt" of lace.  Anyone  who is interested may cut off a hunk and go to town.  Any size, any medium, optional again.  

Vicky Pigmatella will be at Riverwalk, but, of course, I don't have a date.  I'm sure you can find it on-line.  I don't know,

FIBER ART SHOW:  The show received a very nice response.  Due to the date we chose, it forced many of the art league members to view our work (they were dropping off their work for the next show).  We were discussing the possibility of having demos at the next show,...yes there will very probably be a next show.  Felting was number one on the list.
Put your thinking caps on to come up with more possibilities.  Thank you to all who participated, we should be proud.  

NEXT MEETING will be at the Naperville Art League on July 27, 2009 at 7 p.m.  The address is 508 North Center Street, Naperville, IL  60563.  There is parking behind the building, on the street and across the street in a large parking lot.  We enter through the front door.
I will be unable to attend this meeting due to my class with Caryl Bryer Fallert!  Woo-hoo!
This time for sure!  See you in August.

MAGGIE WEISS:  Don't forget to discuss Maggie's class, thermofax basics (1 to 2 days).  Check out her website at
xxxooo,  Laurie
