September  meeting – Cane demo and swap and Swellegant demo

For September’s meeting Sherman demo a cane or two, you can make one at the meeting and/or bring some canes to swap.  We’ll also experiment with Christi Friesen’s Swellegant which is a wonderful surface treatment for clay.

To join in on the fun, bring your basic clay supplies, clay and if you want to participate in the swap, some canes you can part with.

A special offer from Christi


Christi Friesen’s class was so much fun! (photos and news on that will be posted when Martha gets the energy)  Christi has a special offer for our members. From Christi ….

Hi everyone!

We had such a great time with the workshops and I was so glad to see so many old and new friends.  Folks also enjoyed purchasing some of my product line, but I wasn’t able to bring everything… so here’s an idea!

Let’s put together a group order for the Philly Guild. Then I can give you all a hefty discount and ship it all to Sherman and you can get it from him at the Guild meeting!

Here’s what you do:

1. Go to my site:  2. Find so many things you want and make a list of the names and style numbers.  3.)Email that list to ME at AND 4.) I’ll send you an invoice that will be 25% OFF (AND free shipping)  THEN You’ll pay me and then all the stuff will ship all together to Sherman and he’ll give it to you AT THE MEETING.

Cool?  Great – deadline to get your email list to me is: Sat. Sept. 21

Won’t be going to the meeting? I can still give you a smaller discount code for whenever you want to place an order on your own through the site – just add the code at checkout for 10% off.

Code is: PHILLY10

Your clay pal,  Christi
