Thanks to you…

Amy Giacomelli shows you how to give thanks on PolymerClayDaily.com

Colorado’s Amy Giacomelli (SkyeArt) uses only polymer, paint and grapevine twigs to give us the message of the day. Her mini pumpkins measure 1 1/4″ x 1 3/4″.

Amy specializes in well-chosen words stamped into pears, pumpkins, peas, and other polymer shapes. They’re personal and popular gifts.

Thanks to you, a second industrial-strength pasta machine is within reach for polymer students at the Ohio Reformatory for Women. That you consider them worthy of support makes a great difference in how these women see themselves. That’s the real treasure.

Kindway polymer wares are sold by volunteers in bazaars and craft shows all over Ohio. The sales pay it forward to women returning to their communities. You can help in this win/win cycle:


Let’s get this rolling

Michigan’s Georgeann Galante helped launch polymer lessons at the Ohio Reformatory for Women with her donation of 14 Atlas pasta machines several years ago. Those machines did not fare well when they were screwed down tightly to the tables. They eventually worked themselves apart.

We added a Lucy machine when we won the bid on it at the IPCA Synergy 4 auction. That machine is designed to be bolted down and continues to work well.

But one lone machine shared among the whole group slows production. So we’re raising money to buy another prison-approved roller to be used by the students in the Kindway polymer program.
