I live in the Oklahoma City area, and I've often wondered if I am the only polymer clay addict around here. Until recently, I hadn't heard of any polymer clay classes in the area. I haven't seen polymer clay artists at the (admittedly few) craft shows I've been to. And there's not a polymer clay guild in Oklahoma. Still, I figured there must be at least a few other clayers in the state of Oklahoma. And since it would be cool to meet with folks to learn and share ideas, I started toying with the idea of starting a polymer clay guild.
Turns out I wasn't the only one toying with that idea. Last night, Mary posted to the clay-polymer Yahoo! group (an excellent group, by the way) that she was looking for Oklahomans interested in a Tulsa-area guild. She's already had a couple of positive responses -- but there were also a couple of people (including me) that responded they'd rather not drive all the way to Tulsa for meetings.
I've been looking at the National Polymer Clay Guild's tips on starting a new group... and it really sounds exciting. I would be happy to volunteer my house for meetings -- or if there are too many people for that, I'm sure we could find a community center or library with reasonable meeting fees. So I'm curious -- is there anyone else in the central Oklahoma area who would be interested in meeting to play with clay?
Leave a comment or contact me privately if you're interested...
Update 11/12/06: I've posted meeting info on the Oklahoma Polymer Clay Guild web site.
