yourself!! It's Sandy Camp time again!! With the cancellation of
National Conference, “the Evolution of Polymer Clay”, it has freed us
up to plan for our annual retreat. This year, our sixth!!, will be more
of a retreat versus a conference. (The difference being conferences
have classes, retreats have demos only). Your calendars need to be
marked for Wednesday November 10 - Monday, November 15, 2004. As
always, you can come for any or all of that time.
We will be
having our retreat at our favorite spot: Warner Springs Ranch.
This lovely facility is located 80 miles north of San Diego, just
outside of Julian. You can check out their facility at their
This is convenient for all of southern California as well as the
southwest US. Flights into SD are plentiful but you will need to rent a
car if you are flying in, due to the distance to get to WSR.
This year, we will be using a huge tent
that they have recently added to their facility. It is completely
handicap friendly. The electrical use for this area will light up a
small city so we have no fear that we will blow any circuits. There
will be plenty of heaters for the evenings for those that want to play
with clay till the wee hours (if you aren’t in the hot mineral pools!!).
Our demo list
has started but it's far from complete and still tentative:
Ellie Hitchcock, Elissa “Heart” Powell, Christie Friesen, Donna
Kato, Judy Summer, Janet Pitcher and Kelly Steindorf, Judith
Skinner, Dawn Schiller, Lisa Pavelka, Bonnie Mraz, Dotty McMillan,
Marie Segal, Have Eisenson, Sally Morgan and more...
If you are
interested in demoing, please email Ellie at Jhitchc1@san.rr.com.
We will again
have a “Bottles of Hope” challenge. We will have a
variety of categories that you can enter your bottles into. We will be
taking these polymer clay covered bottles as gifts to cancer patients
at a local hospital where they go for their treatments, so please be
prepared to part with them. (We will supply the bottles for you to
cover) Winners will be announced immediately following the “Family
Feast” on Saturday night.
