Pot Luck/ Tesserae Exchange Information – Holiday Party

The Guild’s holiday get together will be on December 11th at Beth Karjala’s home. Her address is 1700 Lexington Ave. South, Apartment 406, Lilydale, MN 55118.

Our party will start at 7:00 pm. There will be no formal meeting on the 11th.
Anyone who wants to mosaic some style of candle holder can do so. This can hold a pillar candle, a taper or a votive candle etc.  If you do not have time to work on this project please come to the party anyway. We are making a game out of this by guessing which mosaic artist created each candle. I would ask each person to bring their candle in a brown grocery bag (plain if possible). Beth will have a place to drop them off and someone will get them set up as a centerpiece on the buffet table. We will have a prize for the person who has the most correct answers. 

We will also have the annual tesserae exchange. Please bring a small bag or box of tesserae if you wish to be a part of the exchange.

Any questions please call Trudy at 952-975-0276.

List of proposed Mosaic Guild Meetings for 2014
 February 12th at Trudy Vrchota’s home - We will all bring a new 8” x 8” mosaic with the theme of Love. This will be fitting for two days before Valentine’s Day. Judy Sell suggested that we all contribute new 8x 8 pieces with a theme. The thought is that there will be cohesiveness when they are all displayed together at a show. These could be hung in the same location that the Haiti quilt had been displayed for the last Edina Art Center show. Hopefully this will give everyone enough time to get a new piece completed by Feb.

April 9th at Jo Shaddy’s home- Joe has a home studio where she teaches and she has purchased a saw that she has been using to cut detailed shapes. She will demonstrate how it works. Anyone who has a cool tool that they have been using can bring it to this meeting. Also if anyone has spent money on a tool and been disappointed in their results they could share their experience with us and maybe save us all from purchasing that tool.

June 11th at Rachel Arntson’s home- Rachel has had several mosaic parties at her home and will share how to host a mosaic party. We will also have a demonstration on wood burning. Rachel has combined wood burning and mosaics and the results have been beautiful and unique.

September 10th at Mosaic on a Stick- Show and Tell. Bring in a piece that you would like to share with the group and explain the inspiration behind the piece and any details that you wish to share in how you created the mosaic.

November 12th at Laura Lee’s home- Planning meeting for the following year.

December 10th at Beth Karjala’s home  - for annual Pot Luck Dinner- Dinner and tesserae exchange.
