     ``Connie Rocks! I began my venture of opening a new paint your own pottery studio with my own business plan and ideas about how I wanted to get things done, but once I started working with Connie I realized how many mistakes I would have made trying to do it all on my own. She was the second set of eyes and ears that I needed to get this together and running, especially since part of my time was preoccupied with having a beautiful baby girl! Thank you Connie, you were the difference in my starting a successful business and just opening a business."

Village Clay Your Way

     "If you are planning on opening a Paint Your Own Pottery Studio, you have to look into American Ceramic Supply's start-up package. The prices are unbeatable, and the unending support they have given me has been priceless. They will help you choose everything from your line of color, to your brand of kiln, to your start-up bisque inventory, to marketing ideas. Furthermore, they guarantee the quality of their bisque, and the bisque lives up to that guarantee. You can't let this supplier pass you by."
Colleen Cole
Paint This!

     “I hired Connie Speer after reading her informative articles and talking to other studios. Connie was always given a high recommendation by everyone I talked to, and I will give her a 5 star rating! She is an unbelievable asset to have on your team. I couldn’t have opened my paint your own pottery studio without her. I am a business woman, but Connie brings the industry experience with her to the table. She is always available (I tell her she needs a hobby) for me and she never treats me like an inconvenience. She promised she would be there to see this through with me, and she has kept her promise. I would have been lost without her during this experience. She truly cares about her clients and she is always in your corner. If she tells you to do it - JUST DO IT (there is a reason!) It will be the best investment you can make if you are thinking about opening a paint your own pottery studio!”
Diana McGraw
Artrageous Studio

      “I decided to open a paint your own pottery studio nearly twenty years ago and fortunately met Connie at my first convention in Dallas. In fact, it was the most valuable resource I found. Starting a new business is difficult enough. To have someone guide you through the ordering and set up of products, colors and equipment is so significant. I believe Connie was the first to develop consulting and customized 'Start-up packages' and most importantly they come with Connie's personal service and unlimited advice and enthusiasm. I have called Connie throughout the years with questions on products and advice in regards to my business and am able to reach her promptly and I am always well received, even if it is not financially beneficial to her. Connie along with her mom Pat are always fun & familiar faces at convention and are still going strong for a reason!”
