GAPCG Fall Shop Hop event.
Saturday. 11/4/17: 9:30am – 5pm.
Store participants this time are:
Tandy Leather, JFF Jeweler Supply, and Creative Journey Studios.

This annual event was created to help our members discover the many options available locally to find & purchase items useful for polymer clay art work regardless if they were designed specifically for polymer use.
It is a daylong event to open your eyes to the endless possibilities of what you can create with. Participants will follow a route and schedule stopping at locations to watch demos, hear suggestions on what to look for, browse, and SHOP! Our store participants vary and many are kind enough to offer gift item(s), discounts, or coupons so be sure to join us for the fun.
Lunch reservations are made for those that wish to participate with separate check arrangements made in advance. You can join us for the whole day, or for a portion as suits your schedule. If you cannot make it for any reason on the event date, feel free to visit the vendor participants with the information provided via email to all Greater Atlanta Polymer Clay Guild members along with any discount/coupons that may be applicable for a limited time period.
