The recent restrictions put in place by the province has hindered some local groups ability to sell their products.

The Pass Pottery Club was scheduled to have their annual Christmas sale on December 5th but were forced to cancel.

President of the Pass Pottery Club, Cheryl Anderson, says that even before the cancel of the sale, things at the club have been slower.

“Things are slow. A lot of our members are staying away right now. The procedures we've put in place due to Covid are a lot for some people so a lot of them are just staying home. Some of our older members are immunocompromised so they are staying home period.

Currently, Anderson says the club is looking into whether or not they are able to sell their items another way.

“We're looking into ways people may be able to buy items from us still. Due to our funding, we're only allowed sanctioned sales. We are hoping we'll be able to have members post items on our Facebook page for sale and I have yet to hear back whether that's permissible or not.”

Anderson also wants people to know that the club is still accepting new members.

“We're still accepting new members. Since we don't have any new classes right now it's harder to train people. For automatic membership you need to have had previous experience with pottery or taken a class similar to one of the ones we offer. The Lebel in Pincher Creek is providing classes at this time.

People are able to take classes through them or in Fernie and will be able to apply to join our group. Anyone can contact us through our Facebook page and we'll set them up with a mentor.”

Anderson says the club misses interacting with the community and hopes to be able to do it again soon.

“We miss seeing everyone and our sales. It's a nice social event and we see a lot of the community at our sales. We miss our community.”
