It`s that time of year again and I do expect to see you!
Yes its that time of year again for the Philadelphia Shell Club (http://www.phillyshellclub.org/show.html) 29th Annual Shell Show Oct. 1st & 2nd 2011 at “The Academy of Natural Sciences
1900 Benjamin Franklin Parkway Philadelphia PA 19103 ( http://www.ansp.org/ ) so get packing!
This year I will be giving a slide show presentation on the History of Sailors` Valentines at 1 pm and again at 3 pm on Sat.& Sun.
Also Ann Dunlap from Sanibel Shell Crafters will be on hand again this year to aid in creating your own Shell Flowers and Shell Critters young and old are welcome. All you need to bring is yourself and nothing else.
SO WHATS NEW THIS YEAR !!!!!!!
Well I have heard you all say “Some day I`m going to create my own Sailor`s Valentine!”
Well the time has come and its hands on!
Susan Black owner of Nantucket Sailors` Valentine Kits will be on hand with eight of her Valentine Kits to aid you in creating your own Sailor`s Valentine. As I have said its “Hands On” so if you happen to purchase one of her kits in the Academy`s Gift Shop bring it to the 3rd floor (Bird Room between 10 am -12:30 pm or 3:30 pm to 5 pm) and get a head start or just stop by and watch her demonstration. Just think no need to hunt around for an eight sided case, no need to purchase a bunch of shells you may never use, no need to spend a lot of time laying out shells by size and color its all there in the kit, you don`t even have to invest in a bottle of glue! So please stop by and say hello to Susan,Ann or myself and enjoy the 29th Annual Show and have some fun. I`ll see you there; Bill Jordan
