Formerly the National polymer Clay Guild, now the International Polymer Clay Association, has announced that this years conference will be held in Chicago! Can I just say that I am so happy!!!! My husband's family lives a mere 25 mins from where the conference is being held. That means the whole family can come and we can have a bit of a summer vacation, complete with clay! Well, maybe. I'm still not certain of all the details and we will have to see if the timing works out for everyone but HOPEFULLY I will be able to go. Hooray!
