Just a reminder:  
 Don’t forget to bring an item to display at the Pearl Library and bring something warm to wear just in case the room is cold.   

Our group is still growing; we will have one more new member to welcome at our July’s meeting.

June CMSPCG Meeting Notes & Supply List



The June meeting of the Central Mississippi Polymer Clay Guild will be on Saturday, June 20, 2015, at 10:00 a.m. at the Pearl Library, Pearl, Mississippi. Becky is going to show us that a Rose is still a Rose when sculptured from Polymer Clay. After we finish making roses, she’s going to demo an Initial Cane.

Just a reminder:  
June is also membership renewal month; bring your $20 annual dues. Debbie will bring the forms to complete; Annette will give out membership cards that we can use to get 10% off of purchases at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores.  Our group is growing, we have two new members to welcome and there will be a guess attending too.

Don’t forget to bring an item to display at the Pearl Library and bring something warm to wear just in case the room is cold.   

SUPPLY LIST:
Rose:
·        1 block of Red or any other color you choose. 
·        ¼ block of Green for the leaf. (More colors for both if you want to do a skinner blend)

·        Very small cookie cutters
Initial Cane:
