What's New this Fall....

It's sad when you are so busy you can't find a minute to write a post on the blog, but today is a rare day off so I have no excuse! Since the last entry Christi Friesen, Lindly Haunani and Loretta Lam have been to the studio to give wonderful classes. Do you know how much French pastry I have had to consume lately? It's a tough job, but someone has to do it! It seems that an expected "perk" of teaching for us is at least one trip to Collet's French Bakery. We even had a couple birthdays we had to celebrate.

Things won't really calm down until the new year. Dani Torres and Natalia Garcia de Leaniz, from Madrid, are coming in October to share their secrets about hollow forms and ring making. They were here when Synergy 3 was in Atlanta and got us all excited about making hollow forms.

Since then they have grown the idea exponentially! Be sure to read the upcoming classes page. After their class, we will all be going to the Kentucky/ Tennessee Guild retreat at the new venue, Rough River Dam park. 
In November, Leslie Blackford is coming back for another nightlight class. She will add her "Winter Woodland" Bracelet to the fun. Call us (404-314-5767) to sign up and start thinking about the theme of your nightlight. 

We'll finish off the year with Jana Roberts Benzon. As you'll see on the class page, she is sharing all her techniques in a process driven, rather than project driven class. I'm sure it will be mind boggling.

If you haven't been in for a visit lately, there are lots of new things to see. We just got more new work from Patrice Pfeiffer, Anke Humpert, Celine Charuau, Loretta Lam, Bettina Welker, Karen Woods and Lindly Haunani. There are new products in the store that I'm sure you can't live without! Pastels, PolyBonder, Kor Tools (even the new long rollers!), a new batch of acrylic rollers, Premo's new colors, Pardo translucent colors, new silk screens from Karen Woods...all sorts of temptations!
