New members' only benefit
Recently announced at The IPCA Retreat in August the newest member benefit is a special discussion group on Facebook titled IPCA Members Only.
This will be a group where members can meet, chat, share and learn together. You will be able to post your art work, works in progress, questions, tips and anything related to Polymer Clay. We will also be offering special weekly topics as well as swaps and contests; you don't want to miss this by-invitation-only FB group.
Please watch for an email invitation from Lee Ann Armstrong and Leila Bidler in your email box during the next few weeks. IPCA will be introducing more Member Only benefits in the coming months so stay tuned!

A Response to "Copying vs. Stealing"
I just discovered an article on the IPCA's website, written by Kerrie Venner, VP for Education and Outreach. Kerrie's article is here.
The article talked about my artwork and a blog article I wrote about my work being copied. Kerrie refers to me as an example of an artist who has published directions for making my artwork who then gets "antsy" when people copy it. She states that she doesn't understand what's wrong with coveting my little totem animals, then making her own versions for her own use, and even to sell, since her customers probably aren't familiar with my work anyway.
