Speaking of guild sites, you should probably take a look at the Southern Ontario Guild's site too. There's some very good work in the gallery – like these spiral topped containers from Margi Laurin. (The guild's server is a bit sluggish so try again later if it kicks you off. The links below work fine.)

And you're a link away from another treasure of that guild. Member Helen Breil's texture plates are now available from Canadian supplier, Shades of Clay.

Helen's first shipment of these quirky and touchable textures sold out quickly. She's bulked up her inventory so that you can confidently order them.

For the DIYers, note that at the bottom of the texture sheet page Helen offers an 8-page "Creating Your Own Texture Sheets" booklet.

    I just received all these plates from Shades of Clay…not only are they magnificent, but ordering them from the owner, Margaret Scott, is always a pleasure!! Helen did a brilliant job with these designs…!

      I have had the pleasure of meeting and ‘claying’ with Helen and Marg… both great people.
      Helen showed us how to make plates at our last guild meeting and it was very inspiring.
      Great job, Helen, Marg and of course SOPCG
