** Update from the Spring Show Committee
February 14th is not just a day to celebrate the love of your significant other, it’s also a day to celebrate your love of the metal arts. It’s the official deadline for the 2014 CMAG Jewelry and Metal Arts Show and Sale. So let your mind turn to thoughts of spring and get those applications in!

For more information, forms and etc. visit the CMAG website spring show page ( .

** Spring Show Gallery
Interested in participating in the Spring Show but not sure if you want a whole booth? Then the group gallery may be just the thing for you. For only $50 you can display three pieces and join the fun. For details read the “Gallery Call for Entries”.

** Silent Auction
Another way anyone can help with the show is to donate a piece to our silent auction. These pieces will be on display near the gallery and customers can bid on them throughout the three days. The proceeds are split between helping pay for show expenses and establishing a member scholarship fund. Just get your piece and a donation form to Mandy Allen before the show.

** CASA beads

Now is the time to start thinking about a very important subject: What bead will you make this year for our CASA neckpieces? Our theme remains Hearts, Homes and Kids.

In addition to the support we give to this local charity, our neckpieces serve to get CMAG noticed by the community. There are donors who go to these events specifically to see the new CMAG pieces. These people are collectors; there have been actual bidding wars! Everyone who sees our pieces recognizes our name, CMAG, and they usually turn up at our Spring Show to purchase work by the people who made the beads.

MAKE THOSE BEADS! REMEMBER: Beads must be smaller than 1″ cubic, and they must have a hole at least 3mm in diameter. NO BEAD IS TOO SMALL!

If you have a bead or if you have questions, please call Mary Wong at (503) 452-1939 or ( .

Thank You!
