July 21st Meeting Minutes

Here is an update on the July PMC Guild meeting:
Cathy discussed the demonstration options for the Gem and Mineral Show in September. People signed up to work the show and we are bringing items to do a mock set up at the August meeting to make sure we have everything we need. Members also signed up to work the booth. This is a booth to demo PMC.
We had our final sign ups for the charm exchange at the September meeting. We have eight members signed up to exchange charms. If you are interested in participating in this event you will need to contact me by August 5th and pay your membership dues.
Venetia gave a treasurer’s report.
Yvonne gave a follow up on the Copper Clay that Carol demonstrated last month. Most of her information was found on the Yahoo group for Metal Clay.
This month’s demonstration was on How to Photograph your jewelry. We had a special guest photographer, Jonathan Fennell. Jonathan is a professional photographer and the husband of one of our members, Ashley. He brought some equipment (which he purchased on EBay) and we practiced photographing our own pieces with our camera or those of other members. He gave us tips and advice. I also want to thank Cathy for bringing her array of props and domes. This gave us an opportunity to see what supplies can be purchased and the use of them.
Jonathan Fennell’s web site is his email is and his phone number is 619-861-7873 for those whom inquired about him taking your photos for you.
