Virtual Meetings

Virtual Meetings until Further Notice

We will be hosting our guild meetings via Zoom until further notice.
The link, meeting ID, and password will be in the newsletter that will be emailed out a few days prior to the meeting.
Hope to see you there!

And (for those like me who are a little vain) here is a zoom youtube link from Libby that has good lighting tips: https://youtube/ACNGhPKnmok 

Also another tip - (I'm SO Vain!!!!...) You can go to Zoom -> Preferences -> Video and in "My Video you can check "Touch up my appearance" which softens up everything 😉

Dec 2016 Meeting Tag Sale and Pot-Luck Lunch

Our December meeting was held on 12/10/16 at the Hagaman Library in East Haven.
December meetings are usually the second Saturday in December, instead of our usual third Saturday meeting schedule.
We had a great time! Plenty of goodies were donated for the Tag Sale and all kinds of wonderful food had been brought in to share.
This year we were the recipients of  Wendy Oestreicher's donated clay collection.
Happy for the donation - many creative works will come out of her de-stash - sad that she has decided to stop playing with polymer clay for the time being. Wishing her much joy in her other creative pursuits.
