Christi Friesen Workshop

Christi Friesen Workshop & Benefit April 17-19, 2009 Indianapolis
Christi Friesen has offered to do a 3 day workshop, April 17, 18, and 19th, 2009. Three fun-filled days of generously discounted classes. The Indiana Bead Society can't begin to thank Christi for her help in this event.
This workshop is a benefit event for polymer clay artist Ponsawan Silapiruti 's daughter, Ada. You may know the story: On March 2, 2008, Ada was a vibrant, caring young woman full of life, excitement, and promise. On March 3rd 2008 she was in a coma with brain damage and broken bones. Hit by a drunk driver that sustained no damage. The world changed for Ponsawan, Ada, and their family.
Full details and online registration at:
The Indiana Bead Societ hopes that you'll attend the classes or consider a donation to Ada (and Ponsawan). Ponsawan blogs about Ada's progress at .
Come join us. No experience necessary. I'll be there to help you. Christi is so much fun to be around and a very good teacher. It is nice of her to offer us this workshop and the proceed that will go toward Ada's fund.

If you would like to donate your beautiful creation so we can use for the auction during Christi Workshop, please mail it out to this address:

P.Sila 5343 W. 38 th St., Indianapolis, IN 46254

Please thank Christi Friesen and her big heart and to ALL the artists who I am sure will donate their work to support Ada's Fund. We need lots of money to pay for Ada's weekly therapy and for her van!
