Hello everyone,

The Morrisburg Polymer Clay Gathering (I think is the 7th one) is going to happen in exactly three weeks! Hopefully when spring has sprung. This message is a reminder of other things to bring along with you to make everybody’s life more pleasant.

LIBRARY: once again we ask for your cooperation for the reading table; we all like to read stuff and if you have any magazines or books of interest, please bring them along. They don’t necessarily need to be clay stuff: anything to inspire will do the trick. Please mark the books/magazines you bring so that they can be returned to you.

TABLE DE JUNQUE: how about making a special effort for the table. In this time of recycling, take a good look at all your clay related tools/supplies. There is a lot of stuff that you don’t use and won’t use. Why don’t you give them to someone who will? We can’t think of a better way of sharing. We all have stuff lying there begging to be used…by someone else!! Think about it. There are always little treasures to be found on that table.

SHOP HAWK AND GAWK: if you have anything to show and tell we would be happy to see it (does not have to be for sale). Just bring anything you are proud of or maybe things you want input on. And if you have stuff to sell, we will set up a table like in the years past.
Mark each item with your name and price.
You are responsible for the sale (i.e. receipt, taking cash,
packaging etc).
We will have an area assigned, but if you have special display requirements, please bring them.

CANES: Do you have canes that are never-ending? Why don’t you bring them along to exchange? that way, you will have a greater variety of canes to work with. The more canes, the merrier. I might even make one this year for this purpose. This has worked well in the last two years and we want to do it again this year.

BEADS: We had this great suggestion of a bead swap. If you want to add to your bead collection bring your beads to exchange. It should be fun: we did this before and it was a success.

This year, we want you to plan for a Sunday morning class because the schedule goes till 12:00. You will only need a small amount of clay plus a few tools; this will be a fun class.
If you have any ideas you want to share, please go right ahead. The information we gave you is all on the Morrisburg blog. (see below)
Once again, we are anticipating a super weekend of learning, laughter and lots of claying. Don’t forget to bring your smile and energy because we plan to have some fun.

You will be receiving driving directions and phone numbers etc. closer to the date.

Margi and Vio

I (vio) a little bit of info to add to my bookmaking class. In my class description I said I use a 1/16-drill bit. I made a book recently with my daughter and the 1/8 drill bit is also fine.
Book measurement: it does not really matter. If you made your covers as specified in my instructions ( 3 ¼ x 4 ¼ , fine, don’t make the correction. If you did not make your covers yet, you can also use the following dimensions: 3 ½ x 5 ½ . I will have examples of both dimensions: the latter measurements are the Moleskines ones. I will add this information to my post on the Morrisburg blog
