Let me introduce myself...
- Hello everyone,
I just found you on the net (via another group) and joined
yesterday. I haven't been on many lists and decided to branch
out a little!
I actually *know* Margaret and have met her in person! We "roomed"
together at Ravensdale 2000 last year. I will also be having her as
my houseguest this summer. I just hope we can find enough to keep us
busy--Dayton, Ohio is not exactly New York City!
I've been working with polymer clay since late 1997 and still
consider myself a dabbler as I haven't really found my "niche". I
love to learn new things and then play with them. I started out by
participating in swaps (before PCC went to Delphi) and that's what
got me inerested and kept me going. I even did a Fimo color mixing
swap---that was work intensive but I have lots of color strands from
all the swappers so it was worth it.
Last year, several of us pc'ers discovered that we live in
the same area so we got together and started meeting informally in
the basement of one lady's house. We have now formally started a
guild and are meeting monthly at a public library. Our first
workshop was in February this year and we had Petra from New Zealand
as our instructor. What a coup for us! (She was a "captive"
visiting at my home at the time--right after she visited with
Margaret!) This summer, our guild will have a booth at the Dayton
City Folks Festival (this is a celebration of American folk music,
different cultures which contributed to our heritage, etc) so we will
have a chance to show and sell our work and have folks learn about
our guild and PC. One of our members (Anita Behnen) just had a book
published by HOTP called Playful Clay Creations with Shelly Comiskey--
she will definitely be demoing at the booth.
Sorry to be so long winded! And now I will go back to
lurking...something I do well! Glad to meet
- Welcome Jan, glad to see another US resident on this list. I also belong to
the www.MSATPolyClay list and hope to get to meet the Hostess from this list
next month. There is a Guild, here in Houston, TX, but I have not join them
yet. I am mostly into 1/12 miniatures, and now doll sculpting is what I am
trying to learn.
Have you got a site where your work is on display? would love to see it if

Happy to "meet" you! No, I don't have a website...I need to learn how
to do that. I bought 2 books on HTML and website building in
February when Petra (from New Zealand) was here. She also got me
started by using a page from her site to let me build from. The only
trouble is..I can't find where she put it on my computer!! Oh well,
I'll find it eventually. I need to read the books first, I guess.
When I finally take that plunge, I'll be sure to let you know!
