You Made It! Turns Six, Throws a Month-Long Bash

David Miller and Joan Clasbey, co-owners of YOU MADE IT! POTTERY STUDIO in
Historic Downtown Harrisonburg, celebrate their 6th year anniversary with a NEW LEASE AND A BIG BASH CELEBRATION PARTY!  May 31st of this year marked the end of the first 6 years for You Made It.  We are happy to report that we have signed on for 5 years more at our present location at 163 South Main St. Harrisonburg, VA across from the Massanutten Regional Library.    
Says Clasbey, “The climate of ‘recession’ in Harrisonburg compels us, more than ever, to provide a place for people to spend time with friends and family and to have fun while enjoying meaningful moments!  Producing art, whether it is painting ceramics, throwing clay on the wheel or fusing colorful glass creations at You Made It is a wonderful release from the stress and uncertainty of our times”.
To celebrate signing our new lease, You Made It is hosting several events during the month of June.  “We are very excited to expand our offerings to the public,” says Miller.  “We opened a new Pottery Wheel Room where people may take throwing lessons or, for just $8 per hour, practice their artistic skills on the Potter’s Wheel.  I will be showcasing the wheel with demos on our front steps during First Friday (June 5th) from 5-7pm.”
“Another exciting addition to our studio is the new warm glass room due to open later this month,” reports Clasbey.  “Here people may come in and design their own jewelry and other glass pieces such as plates and bowls.  We’ll fire them on site in our new glass kiln.”
To celebrate SCHOOL’S OUT and SUMMERTIME, You Made It is hosting a “Pottery Potluck” on Friday, June 12th from 6-8pm.  Everyone is welcome to bring a dish to share with new friends while we provide beverages, plates, utensils, etc. and pottery to paint, of course!  We’re big on family celebrations so we haven’t forgotten Father’s Day on Sunday, June 21st, where families painting with Dad save 1/2 off their studio fees.
Our BIG CELEBRATION EVENT is CUSTOMER APPRECIATION DAY on Saturday, June 20th from 12– 6pm.  David Miller, also co-owner of Midtowne Market says, “We’re serving up the best hot dogs in town from Midtowne Market and cutting the anniversary cake at noon.  We’ll be having storewide specials throughout the day.  The public may also preview our summer art camps for children, as well as check out our new pottery wheel room and our brand new warm glass room.  Everyone is welcome!”
We would be happy to provide more details and photography or schedule a media visit.  You Made It!
