Happy birthday to Susan Rose and her PolymerClayNotes.com. Susan has generously shared her finds with me over the past year and now she's launching her own site concentrating on polymer clay techniques and tools. There are other such sites but few webmasters have her sleuthing ability and her panache.

I found the fondant rolling pin above through a link on Susan's site and was lusting after the lovely dotted fabric it makes. My husband suggested that I make my own roller out of polymer clay. Of course! There were a few other things, however….

Happy first birthday to the Polymer Clay Guild at the Lexington Arts and Crafts Society (LACS). The young guild is collaborating with the New England Bead Society (Beadesigner International) to celebrate the guild's first birthday and the bead society's twentieth. The birthday show runs October 7-21 at the Parson's Gallery in Lexington, Massachusetts. The purse shown here is by member Karen Swiech.

And speaking of guilds, you should note that the national guild has posted its 2007 Progress and Possibilities juried exhibition application forms. Entries are due by April 1.

    How about taking a piece of pvc pipe and a drill to make a “swiss dot” roller??

      Hi all,
      The polymer purse is the creation of Karen Sweich who was featured in an earlier enrty of Polymer Clay Daily. This purse was displayed at the Bead & Button show and featured in the last Bead & Button Magazine. Karen is showing a fabulous collection of her purses in the Parsons Gallery located at the Lexington Arts and Crafts Society “Anniversary Show and Sale”. Her work along with her fellow guild members will be on display from Oct 7 thru Oct 21. Check the BDI website for exact information.
