Friday March 9, 6:30 pm at the shop. Heather Kushum will be teaching juniors and adults alike to create Gem Trees. Start time is 630 pm. All are welcome.
Friday April 13 6:30 pm at the shop is our annual rock auction and annual AGM Meeting. Be sure to mark this date on your calendar. Tom Kaddits will hopefully be our auctioneer. Viewing will begin at 6:30 pm. Plan on arriving early so that you can pick out your favourite pieces that you wish to bid on. The auction will start at 7 pm.
The auction is one of our major fund raisers for the club. As such we rely on the members to donate special pieces to make the auction a success. These items can be donated ahead of time on shop nights or at the auction night itself. We are always looking for quality mineral or crystal specimens, finished jewelry, books related to the hobby, equipment, hand tools, settings, gem material, in short just about anything.
As well we can auction off equipment that you want to dispose of. The club would keep just 10/% of the proceeds. Just bring it in and let the auctioneer know that the proceeds go to you with 10% for the club. This is a fun event open to all, so bring your friends and family members and join in the merriment.
Friday February 9 at 630 pmat the KLMC shop will be the next meeting for KLMC members. Heather Kushum will be the instructor for the evening. We will learn how to create these unique dragonflies out of gem beads and copper wire. There may be event parking at the Isabel this night, so if you want to park for free, park on Ellerbeck street, either side of the street.
I still have spaces available as well in the Family day program, Monday February 19 from 10-1130am. The program will be creating wire people with stone beads and copper wire. This program is free (by donation only). I have 6 spaces available. If you would like to sign up, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
