Since launching the re-designed site, things have been pretty busy. When I set out to accomplish the revitalization of pcPolyzine, I knew there would be some things that I just couldn’t get done in time for the July release date. So I’ve spent the past few months trying to reach goals to make pcPolyzine even better.

Clay-bor Day 2019.
As I was going through the list, I stumbled across a nearby guild that was holding a weekend retreat. It seemed like a no-brainer to me to go and meet everyone. However, this happened to be over Labor Day weekend and Hurricane Dorian was threatening Florida and the east coast. As the week went by, I watched the storm closely and determined that I could attend the retreat for that Saturday.
I drove from my home in Mobile to Tallahassee that Saturday morning to meet with the guild and attend my very first clay retreat. The Tallahassee guild was extremely sweet and welcoming! It was great to meet everyone and watch as their polymer clay inspiration and enthusiasm spread around the room. We learned how to make some adorable angels that could be used for ornaments or even gift tags. And they had a workshop for making different kinds of canes and then covering ink pens, too. There were many seasoned clayers and a few who are new to the polymer clay universe. I couldn’t have asked for a more pleasant day with a wonderful group of clay artists!
As the rest of 2019 goes by, I will be continuing to update the information on the new Guild tab of our website. If your guild is not listed yet or if there is any information that’s incorrect, please send me an email. I want to ensure that the information we’re sharing is as current as possible.
And, as the opportunities arise, I hope to be able to attend more guild meetings and retreats throughout 2020 and beyond! Please feel free to let me know when your guild is planning an event and I will do my best to get there. I’m anxious to meet everyone and share pcPolyzine with the clay community again!
I want to give a special thanks to the Tallahassee guild for welcoming me so warmly and sharing part of their Clay-bor Day retreat with me!
I hope everyone’s holidays are happy and the rest of 2019 is great. See everyone in 2020!
