The link www.cerfemergecy.org  doesn't work. Is it miss spelled?

Pam, if you want to organize a signed catalog fundraiser that is just fine with me.  The catalog won't be out though until the conference but getting everyone's signatures that are there would be a great start!

We won't know how much the catalog for awhile but it will be in the $20 range.

Lorrene - Hugs to you too!!  You are an absolute treasure!  It was wonderful meeting you.

To those who are not attending the conference -- you have time to change your mind!

CERF stands for Craft Emergency Relief Fund.  It is an organization that helps artists out in times of crisis so they can get back on their feet.  Their website is www.cerfemergecy.org 

It really is a great organization and has come to the aid of so many artists.

OK, for us newbies. What is CERF and how does it work?

Congratulations Kristie, a most welcomed addition to our fabulous line up of metal clay artists!  YAY
Comment by Susan Breen Silvy on March 30, 2011 at 1:53pm

I would like everyone to know that Kristie McMahon was also juried into the exhibition.  I feel so bad that I somehow overlooked her name when compiling the list.  Kristie, I am so sorry!!!   I have corrected the mistake and she is now listed with the rest of the artists.

 

BTW, congratulations Kristi!!!!!

How much will the catalog cost to purchase?

Comment by Ann Davis on March 30, 2011 at 11:19am
Pam, that's exactly what the ISGB is doing now, sending around the Japanese Bead Soc Magazine with the Perspectives show in it. Jerry Wahaftig is coordinating that....it looks like a lot of work, she's keeping up with the box of mags at every step:)) I'm looking for it to arrive this week:)))))

JMGA Sydney 2015

**So I’m back from #SnagBoston, and made it home to cap off a great, if somewhat frenetic, conference experience with the 2015 edition of that perennial favourite, #SnagFlu. I’m blaming the 6:30am fire alarm on Thursday morning for getting us all off to a premature start, and costing us the last bit of energy needed to scrape home with immunity uncompromised. I know that I did promise a Snag…See More
