Pottery Exchange

Kim Manfredi returns to deliver our completed pots.

We will also have a "White Elephant" pot sale. Everyone has some pots that just aren’t their style, but they could be exactly what someone else is looking for. Do some Spring cleaning, and make someone’s day! Kathi Cambiano will be demonstrating how to drill holes in pots during a portion of the meeting. Bring safety goggles if you have them. Instructions for the "White Elephant" pot sale:

  • Clear out any dirt from the pot
  • Label your pot with your name and price
  • Secure the label to the pot with tape
