Pacific NW Glass Events, Past & Future

| 0

Past events:

The first two General Meetings of 2024 were great and unedited recordings have been uploaded to the Glass>Education section of the website (“Enamel On Glass” & “Scrap Glass Tips“) for logged in members to see as mentioned in the “General Meetings” article above.

The February Sherlocking meeting in Portland had 10 people attending and the Glass Brunch in Seattle had 9 people attending but we have no photos of either.

Please send us photos of your glass events:

Having a photo makes it so much easier to invite people to participate in an event next year. If you are part of or go to a glass event please take some photos and send the best 2 to the publicity team (400 to 600 px or “medium” resolution, about 500 KB, not more than 1MB if you can help it).

Future events

The Gathering of the Guilds show (GOTG) in Portland April 19-21 will take much of the Guild’s energy from now til then as previously mentioned. Be sure to attend if you can. You will be rewarded with lots of glass inspiration.
• See last year’s event writeup for photos of 2023.
• Please fill out the volunteer form and join a lot of other glass aficionados in helping put on the show. There are lots of jobs still needing to be filled: Photographer, Booth Sitter, Gallery set up or take down, Counter at the door and many more.

Rae Williamson came all the way from Canada to volunteer last year. Here she booth sits for Mitzi Kugler.

Vendor Fair May 11 in Redmond WA, near Seattle (there will also be one in Portland October 12th) see article above.

PNWGG booth at the Portland Rose Festival’s CityFair (see article above) will be May 24-27, May 31-June 2 & June 7-9. Nearly half the slots are gone already so fill out the Registration form soon.

• “Sherlocking” The monthly troubleshooting and discussion group is for members wanting to troubleshoot their glass pieces and techniques has decided to meet most 3rd Wednesdays of the month at 6:30 pm April will be the 24th because of GOTG. In person near Portland and via Zoom. Check the Calendar for upcoming meeting dates.

General meetings in 2024 are via Zoom, usually on the 4th Sunday of most months, at 3:30 pm (not April, July, August, or December).

Contact our VPs if you have suggestions for future topics. You don’t need to be a member to attend our General Meetings but we would love to have you join. Videos of many meetings are available to members by choosing Glass>Education from the menu.
