More pics of our many donations. Some are new and some mentioned in earlier posts. Also a big thank you to Eileen Cressman-Reeder for her donation of an amazing sculptured teapot and to Lesley Gevins for her beautiful handcrafted wicker vase.
The May 20 Fundraiser is approaching. If you like beads here is your chance to win all kinds of beads that I have accumulated over the years. These are not reject beads. Included are beads I bought in travels to New Mexico, Florida and during a buying frenzy at Shipwreck Beads in Oregon. There are beads from Venice, Czech glass, beads from India and other places. There are focal beads, spacers, and a few gemstones. There are a few lamp worked beads (none of mine) but most are pressed glass.
There are matte beads, shiny beads. foiled beads, beads with an AB finish, top drilled. side drilled and center drilled. There are leaves hearts, tablets, tubes, dangles, daggers, drops and druks.
Will they be auctioned off in lots? In surprise packages? By color? You will have to come to the fundraiser to find out. If you want to see more items that will be up for grabs at the fundraiser, press here, here and here.

If you would like to donate (and have your name on the blog in BOLD letters) please contact Denise Pettit and bring your item to the next meeting. There are more vendor donations, too, and they will be listed on the blog soon.
New artists contributions are from our own Emily Squires Levine and recent guest artist Doreen Kassel. Vendor donations include water transfer sheets, business card covers and claying DVDs from the Lisa Pavelko Signature Series (lisapavelko.com). Also the Guild received from Clearsnap 8 bottles of Smooch valued at $36. Colors include Olive Twist, Ocean Soul, Tuxedo, Carrot, Sassy Pink, Sundance, Plum, Twist, and Kiwi.
As donations begin to stockpile at Denise Pettit’s home for the Guild’s Annual Showcase Fundraiser, Denise worries that her neighbors will nominate her for “Hoarders” the reality show on TLC. Here are some of the new contributions from vendors, members and artists.
Alright folks, start saving your change and dollars. PAPCG’s annual Showcase Fundraiser is just around the corner and donations are rolling in.

In addition, Jacquard Products generously donated 50 jars of Pearl Ex Powders in 10 different colors, along with reference and color guides.
