With Thanksgiving right around the corner, today’s blog post is all about giving thanks.

First of all, everyone here at PotteryWorks is feeling very thankful for the support we’ve received from our Wichita community this season. Early this month, Legacy Ministries put on a lunch to reach out to our greater Wichita community, inviting people to learn more about our organization and give support in whatever way they can. We were overwhelmed with the positive feedback! Last weekend we had a booth at Wichita’s Alternative Gift Market. We were extremely grateful for the many, many people who stopped by our booth to ask about Legacy or buy a mug. We receive so much encouragement and many compliments on our pottery. We spend most of our time glazing and sanding in our dusty basement studio and selling our wares online; it was refreshing to have personal contact with shoppers and to receive their kind praise. We have much to give thanks for this season!
