Can you feel it? Summer is waning - have you noticed how dark it is at 9 pm at night - that's a sure sign.
So - what's on your wheel? What have you been working on all summer?
I'm sure everyone is very busy getting ready for all the autumn sales and shows.
Here's a sneak preview of what I've been working on - another Dragon teapot. Among other things.
Anyway - I thought it was time to post to the blog again - and bring everyone up to speed on what's going on.
First of all - I haven't figured out how to work the Yahoo site yet to send out messages to everyone - and since it appears that my e-mail isn't talking to Stephanie's e-mail, it may be a while before you receive any messages. I will do my best to rectify this in the very near future.
Our next meeting is scheduled for Monday, September 21st - 7pm - site to be announced.
Stephanie and I have arranged for our teapot show to move out to the "Petrolia Mercantile" store in Petrolia for the month of OCTOBER - so I am asking everyone to
please bring your teapots to the meeting in September (carefully wrapped).
We will take them out and set them up at the Petrolia Mercantile for the show. Further information will follow shortly.
Please also - Karen, the proprietor of the Petrolia Mercantile has offered to sell teabag holders for us as a fund raiser. We are asking that everyone please try to make a couple of teabag holders for us and bring them to the meeting as well.
For those of you who don't know what a teabag holder is - it's a small bowl or decorative dish - usually with a "divot" in one side for the spoon to rest comfortably on - and the use is to hold teabags of course. Be creative - fancy is good.
That's it for now - I'll try to update again next week with more info on the teapot show. In the meantime - if you have any questions -send them to the guild - I will be checking them regularly - I just have to figure out how to send to the entire group.
