January 2012

TAGY met on January 9th to start off the new year. Present were: Jeanne; Lili; Linda; Sue; Ginger; Patty; Marybeth; Jeannette; Alice; and guest Jan Hoar.

Barbara gave a program on making bowls with threads and scraps and wash-away Solvy.  Several members provided additional threads and Solvy as well, so we had lots of supplies to play with.  Under Barbara's guidance, we all made bowl forms to take home and finish. We will bring them back next meeting for Show & Tell.

For more info, a video about using Solvy is available from Sulky http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ETWkofhhyrM
Part II of the video starts off with thread bowls http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&feature=endscreen&v=QvQaDhR1zno

Below is a fabulous bowl that Barbara made as a demo.
Linda brought a package of the new Paper Solvy to the meeting.  Part II of the video shows how to use it for paper-piecing.  When you are done piecing the block, just rinse away the paper.

Our TAGY 2012 Book Challenge was discussed. Guidelines are available in the blog archive under December 2011.
