Upcoming Meetings

Meetings are the 2nd Saturday of the month

August 12

Fairy Doors, Demos & Open Torch!

Please join us on Saturday, August 12 for a day of glassy fun! This month we'll be making glass fairy doors with Kathi Truba. All materials will be supplied for members for $10 and non-members for $15.  This is going to be directly sent to the Beads of Courage Program to help with our obligation to sponsor the Beads of Courage program at the Florida Hospital For Children in Orlando.  We have made a commitment as a group to fund this project and the coffers are low:)  Do not let this fee keep you from coming!  You do not have to make a fairy door!  You can just enjoy the kinship and learn how to make a fairy and join the festivities....or just come for the learning experience, friendship and FOOD!  You can make your own at home with the techniques we will show you!  We are doing this to raise money for Beads of Courage not benefit the Dragons:)  

Kathi will provide the glass, foil, solder and cleaning products.  Look in your jewelry findings for the brass filigrees and a bead for the door knob. #6 seed beads, if you want to include them in your project. You will need to bring jewelry round and flat nose pliers, wire cutters, and if you have glass tools, cutters, and breaking tools.  Crystal will bring additional supplies as well and will be donating the 18 gauge wire...but bring anything else you like:)


We'll also have door prizes, a raffle & a garage sale. This is a call to all you newbies!  A lot of us old timers will be bringing stuff to unload we dont want anymore...and some of us have been doing glass for 30 years or more...and a call to you old timers to actually bring as much as you want to get rid of!  So bring your glassy friends and help us spread the word! And don't forget to bring your Beads of Courage Donations!

Next month Kathi is donating her studio for our meeting for a Beads of Courage Day!  Great day to torch and learn and support a great cause!
