SCFS ~ October/November Newsletter

Hi Everyone!

It’s hard to believe that October in upon us and Halloween is a week away…which means the holidays are right around the corner. Talk about scary things!

Don McKinneyWe had a nice meeting last month at CBS. We want to thank Dan Baldwin again, for opening their facility to us AND letting us be the first at the dichro sale items! Speaking of, be sure to check out their dichro contest….you still have time to enter and you could win more dichro!

Many thanks to Don McKinney who shared his expertise in making dichroic beads. We always enjoy Don’s demos!

Our BIG holiday meeting is December 3rd atPacific Art Glass beginning at 10 am sharp. Please be sure you save this date and BE THERE! It just may be, sadly, our last meeting as the So Cal Flame Surfers. We are hoping that is not the case, but at this point, we have not had enough people stepping forward to help out with the board.

ripWe (the SCFS board) will be holding a board meeting on October 29th at my home in Redondo Beach. If anyone is interested in attending, would like to see how we run things, are curious,  and want to see the SCFS stay together, by all means join us! Feel free to email me for more info.judy@jujeebeads.com

We really need you! It’s not that tough, it’s just a  2 year commitment for quarterly meetings. Most groups meet monthly…this is easy!

Holiday Meeting!

beadlinerOkay, back to the holiday festivities. As usual, for every paying attendee, you will receive a nice goodie bag. We will be demoing how to core large hole beads, so bring a large hole bead and you can try it for your self! We will also be raffling off a few of these as well, so you will have a chance (with purchase of raffle tickets) to win one, along with many other prizes!

Our bead exchange theme will be mini sets…these are sets of 3 to 5 beads, any theme you like! Please wrap your beads nicely with your name and info so the recipient can thank you for their new treasures!

We will be having our warm and savory pot luck. We will provide a few warm dishes, so please bring along any holiday treat, side or snack you like.

snowmanWhile you are at Pacific Art Glass, please be sure to thank John for all the help and support he has provided for us, the SCFS as well as our Beads of Courage events. He has not only provided us with a meeting venue anytime we, but has been quite generous with donations over the years, including 2 kilns and a torch! You can also thank him by continuing to support PAG!

The L.A. Bead Society will be holding their Fall Bead Bazaar this Sunday, October 23rd from 10 to 5 at the Culver City Veteran’s Hall. This is a week earlier than usual, so don’t miss it, you will see many familiar faces! Click HERE for more info. And for those who can get up to the bay area, BABE! is a fantastic bead show, November 12th & 13. Go HERE for more info!

We are really hoping to see you at the December meeting. And even more so in 2012! Please help keep SCFS alive!!
