October Mtg Minutes

Short discussion of the Show in September
Welcomed a new member and two new visitors
Our upcoming November meeting
Our December members only meeting for the Holidays

Venetia did the Tips and Tricks with handouts for the group on what temperature to fire and hold the various types of PMC in a kiln. Then she discussed the various types of PMC, their structure and comparisons.

We made our own mini hydration chamber for our PMC clay. Each small clay pots was sealed and everyone used their own creativity for the placements of the beads.

Show & Meeting + Thanks

What a Great weekend last week at the Rancho Bernardo Winery. We had a demo booth set up and showed the public how easy it is to work with PMC. Thank you to Kathy, Carol and Mary for doing demos and Ellen and Yvonne for helping man the booth and giving us breaks.

At our last meeting we finalized the show and brochure. We now have our first color brochure for our Guild. Thank you Mary for putting that together for us. The best part of our last meeting was our charm exchange. We had such a wonderful time sharing the charms we made and what that charm meant. Eight of our members now have the First Charms from our new chapter of the PMC Guild. You can find photos on

I am looking forward to our next meeting, Tuesday, October 20th at 6:30 pm. We will go back to our regular meeting by offering a tip and/or trick and a subject or guest speaker. The last several months we have spent a lot of time on planning, shows, classes and brochures.

I just want to say how proud I am of all our members. We just started this guild in April and in that short time we have accomplished a lot. Patrik Kusek class in May, a blog, SD County Fair educational display, a color brochure for our guild, beginners class being offered, a demo booth at a Gem and Mineral show and our First Charm exchange. None of this could be done without the creative ideas and help of all our members. I am happy to say we have a very solid core base.

Thank you for all your hard work.
