February 10th meeting

I had such a nice time on Wednesday, hopefully we can stay in the new location. I'm looking forward to teaching the bracelett at Anthem in Florence the end of this month. Teaching others my love of beads always gives me so much. Sharing stories, ideas and thoughts fills my artist soul.

The cernit demonstration was very nice and I hope we can have other demonstrations throughout this year.

Here's to a wonderful group of talented artists, you all have touched me with your kindness & art.

Beadily yours
Susan E Feldkamp

bracelet class

Susan is teaching her wonderful bracelet here at Anthem at Merrill Ranch on February 26th. Some of you from the doll club are taking the class, too. My address, for those of you coming, is 6601 W Sandpiper Ct., Florence, AZ 85132. You will stop at the clubhouse on Sun City Blvd. where the class will be held. Susan is generously teaching the class for $35.00 person if anyone else is interested. This is an all day class.

Some of us are also interested in having her teach her cabochon class. Perhaps there is a more central location for that? Or we can do it here, also. Who else is interested?

It was another good meeting. Loved the demonstration on making hands from Cernit. Thank you.

And look at those numbers grow!!! This is great and hearing everyone's ideas is so fun. The room works beautifully, too.

I'm delighted that some of you want to go to the doll conference in May. On your computer just key in Creations In Fiber, Inc. and the site should come up with all of the information regarding registration, classes with supply lists and hotel information. Browse it and if you want to go you may want to find a roomie or you may want to room alone. In the next couple of months we can set up carpools. It looks like 2 carloads. I have a big car with a large trunk and can take 3 more people comfortably. See you all next month.

Hi Ladies,

Great News!!! Dollie MaMa and the Fabric Floozies has another new location.

Day & Date: Second Wednesday of every month
Time: Noon-2pm (we still don't have to drive when it's dark, and we can bring our own food.)
Place: YMCA-Valley of the Sun Power Ranch Family YMCA
4546 East Haven Crest, Gilbert, AZ 85297
(It's in the Power Ranch Community, go to google maps for directions)
Same Great price of $5.00 per meeting, per month as long as we have 10 ladies in attendance.

We have lots of room to grow, light, bright and great atmosphere. We have more elbow room, a kitchen with refridgerator, and even a sink in our meeting space. The increased space will not only allow us to accommodate additional members, but also provide space to bring in other artists as instructors for seminars... which could even stimulate club growth by making other artists in the area aware of our group. We are able to extend our hours if we need to when we have an actual class with other teachers. Of course there will be a small fee of $25 per hour, when divided among us that won't amount to much. My goal as the club founder is to bring in fresh ideas and techniques that will benefit each of us. As our club grows, I also hope to obtain discounts and other benefits for club members with fabric stores and other merchants in the area.
