Fueling The Passion

May 2009 Newsletter

May already? Summer time is just around the corner. Of course, it’s hard to tell that with all the weird weather we’ve been having. A few weeks ago we are experiencing record breaking high temps, then the following weekend, it is gloomy, cold and windy. I have to say I prefer the cooler temperature when I am torching since I work out of my garage, but I do LOVE summertime!

And speaking of SUMMER, that will be the theme of our bead exchange for our June meeting, which will be held at The Mandrel on June 20th. So what does summer mean to you? Let’s see that in a bead!

The Art Glass Association of So Cal (agasc) will be hosting their semi-annual Art Glass Show and Sale on May 16th & 17th. I have heard this is a very nice show, it also includes ceramics and other handcrafted art pieces. The show takes place at the Spanish Village Art Center in Balboa Park. Wendy Leys has put together some information about getting a group together to go to the show. Options are carpooling or taking the train. Check out the thread on the SCFS forum (YES, we have our very own forum on the SCFS website!) for more info. Or contact Wendy directly at (949) 552-1413 or emailfiresinger@earthlink.net

That’s it for the moment. Be sure to check out the SCFS website for meeting info, classes, events and glass news. And get on the forum, chat with your fellow SCFS! Have a wonderful May and we hope to see you in June!
