The Dam Retreat with Lindly

We just had a wonderful almost a week up in Kentucky with the Kentucky/Tennessee Guild at the Rough River Dam State Park ‘Resort’. Every year around Halloween, Dr Ron Lehocky (with help from Amy Nemon and Leslie Blackford) hosts a group of around fifty polymer enthusiasts. Feeling relatively safe with everyone being vaccinated and masked,…

A New Treasure

The Retrospective Collections has received an exciting new addition! We got a surprise box from our dear friend Marie Segal. If you are new to polymer clay, you should spend some time learning about Marie and all the things she has brought to our community. She got into polymer back in 1978 and is credited…

The Supply List (as of May 2021)

We have updated the supply list. It’s not comprehensive, but it will give you an idea of the pricing on some of our inventory. If you don’t see something, ask! We have the ability to order from vendors as we need a supply and don’t have to carry it in the store, in our limited…

Hey! Remember us?!

It has been a crazy year, sitting in the safety of home and running the business remotely. We are trying (now that we have been vaccinated) to re-open the business, albeit with reduced hours and mask restrictions. We are busy getting our inventory levels back up and ordering new products we hope you’ll love. We…

The Never Finished Supply List

People are always asking where to find our online store……hmm! Good question! We are constantly finding new supplies to carry and responding to wish lists. It is hard to keep up, and selling without interaction isn’t our style. We will post a list (and try to keep it updated) and be happy to talk to…

All Dressed Up with No Place to Go

In the midst of all this Covid-craziness and while we have been closed, we got a new sign from Crabapple Market….so you could find us, if we were there! Ellen and I have been staying at home for the last eight weeks. Randy has been taking care of the store, watering the orchids and cleaning,…

Sending Love to Lindly

UPDATE: Lindly has been working hard and is doing remarkably well. She’s back at her apartment and has been enjoying a plethora of artistic projects. It’s been especially hard in these crazy isolated covid times. She has started walking around her neighborhood, going as far as the co-op market and buying some stuffed grape leaves!…

Bettina = Bracelets

The last time we had Bettina Welker teach for us, we were still in the middle of our move from Buford. We commandeered the old ‘Mugs’ coffee shop and set up a makeshift studio (that actually functioned pretty well). It was a fun class but I think she will be happy to be in our…
