The project and supply list for our June meeting have been changed due to our “instructor” having to have surgery.
You will not need to bring supplies unless you have a “dedicated” electric skillet or melting pot.
Gail May has generously stepped up to the plate to replace Christy this month. She will be teaching us a “faux” dichroic technique. She will bring the necessary supplies and assess us the nominal fee of $2.00 for them.
The June project will be re-scheduled for a later date….to be announced.
