Meeting notes

Going forward, we’ll be posting meeting updates that highlight our monthly crafts and beer features. In the meantime, here’s a highlight reel from the first four years — starting from 2014. Special thanks to Melissa, Nicole, Emily, Cuoghi and Cari for their Instagram foresight (and willingness to share.)

Decoupage Cork Coasters – November 2014

Hosted by: Reanna (but a special field trip to Platform Beer Co.)

General instructions via Instructables

Bring your own: Old books/magazines

Beer theme: Platform, baby. We mostly stuck to Esther to celebrate the season. We only broke one glass 🙂

Crafty Secret Santa and DIY holiday cards – December 2014

Hosted by: Cari

We also made Christmas cards for a 6-year-old girl with a terminal illness who requested “a lifetime of Christmas cards.”

Special considerations: We set up a Secret Santa, and gifts could either be craft supplies, a crafted gift, or a craft beer. Spending limit was $10.

That’s a wrap on 2014! Stay tuned for the next recap soon.
