We Have Goodies!

December 20, 2008

Guild member Sarah Chartrand has been busy contacting vendors to ask them to provide samples and items for our retreat.

She’s been very successful and has lined up some exciting goodies. The following list of sponsors have either donated something for everyone, or donated an item that we will be giving away as a prize.

Take a look at who has been very generous:

Boston Clay Works
Lisa Pavelka
Polymer Clay Superstore
Kim Cavender
Polyform Products (aka Sculpey)
EZScreenPrint (PhotoEZ)

So not only will you be learning from some wonderfully talented and artistic teachers at the retreat but you’ll also come away with some real nice goodies!

Please visit our sponsors (click on the links above) if you are going to be shopping online. Let them know you heard about them from the Vancouver Polymer Clay Guild. Enjoy!
