Fueling The Passion

October 2007 Newsletter

Hey, it’s not October yet! How can i be so organized as to get the newsletter out 2 days early?? Well my glass obsessed friend….I am on my way to a far away land…with no TV, telephone or email! I am off to the tropics to renew my glass inspiration…underwater! (does that mean I can write this trip off? hmmm)

Sorry this is so wordy, but LOTS going on!

Sept 15 meetingFor those of you who were not able to attend our September meeting at Winship Designs, it was a blast! We announced that SHARON PETERS will be our guest artist at the December meeting! (December 8th, Pacific Art Glass, 10 am to 2 pm…this will be a HUGE meeting!)

Another BIG thanks to Dave Winship and his crew for hosting a great meeting. And thank you to Joe Rooks and friends who shared their amazing glass talents behind the torch for us. We had a big variety of raffle prizes including 2008 Glass Art calendars, items from our Cafe Press SCFS store, a variety of tools, bead goodies, glass magazines, glass samples and a $50 bundle of ASK glass form ABR Imagery!

Sept MeetingBack to the October activities…the So Cal flame Surfers will have a booth at the L.A. Bead Society Bead Bazaar on Sunday, October 28th. We need SCFS members to help man the booth, set up and break down. Please contact Barbara Birbeck at barbbbeads@earthlink.net if you can help out for a few hours. This is a great way to promote the club, show off your own glass work and, if you have never had a booth, get a feel for working a show. There are several of us who have our own booths, so we’ll be there to support you and hey, it’s a bead show! You want to be there! 🙂

If any one is interested in sharing a booth on the patio, Linda Shull is looking for a booth partner. Linda does beautiful dicroic jewelry. If interested, you can contact Linda directly at: linda@shulldesign.com.

It’s a great inspiration for them. We are also asking members to bring a bead (or beads) to send to BOC. I will be posting more details in the next two newsletters. In the mean time, please check out their website for more info: www.beadsofcourage.net/howtohelp.htm

Well, I think that about does it. Remember, I will be off email until the 21st of October. If there is something urgent that needs addressing, please contact our VP, Charlie Warner at charliecalif@yahoo.com or check the website for details.

Thanks very much…have a great month and hope to see you at the LA Bead show!
