Polymer Clay Guild of Minnesota (PCGMN), "Patterns"

The Polymer Clay Guild of Minnesota (PCGMN) was founded in 2002 by Layl McDill, Maureen Carlson, Terry Giacomini, Jean Heidenreich and Kay Panner, among others. They originally met in Layl McDill’s studio, and then moved to Textile Center to have a central location for easier attendance.

Through the years, after the founding of the Guild, many of its members continue to work at perfecting the many techniques of this medium. Members share their knowledge and expertise with each other at meetings and clay plays and with the public at various events such as Art-A-Whirl, Powderhorn Park Art Fair, and the American Craft Council Show, etc. Many of our members have won awards in competitions related to polymer clay.

The guild also participates with charitable organizations like Bottles of Hope and Beads of Courage.

PCGMN meets at Textile Center the second Tuesday of every month from 5—9 pm.
