Scrap Chain Hands-On in January
Our January Instructor, Kaska Firor, is going to present a hands-on class entitled Beautiful Scrap Wire Chains. We’ll learn how to make chain components from scrap wire. Ms. Firor will also be presenting on her class set for that weekend on wire wrapping.
This is part of our NEW meeting agenda, which we announced at the November meeting. If you missed that meeting, you missed some big news!

New Meeting Agenda
Starting in January, we have some important changes to our meeting agenda:

- The formal meeting will last for about 30 minutes (really!). We will be using the website and our newsblast to communicate upcoming events.
- Each month, we will have a hands-on project, instructor presentation, or a special interest presentation. In January, we have Kaska Firor doing a scrap wire chain project. In February, we have a presentation on wax carving for lost wax casting – and more great things planned!
