Wow! With a greater distributorship (is that a word?) maybe they'll bring back some of the discontinued clays like base.

Thanks Pam, With the change European countries will be able to get more PREMO Classic and not FIMO Classic from Eberhard Faber.

Really? Wow. That's really interesting. You would think Fimo Classic would get top priority. Really interesting.

I wonder why EF decided to stop distributing Fimo products and instead distribute Sculpey products?

Hi Cat, There was a joint announcement between STAEDTLER and FABER-CASTELL,its a win win situation, Staedtler holds' Fimo' and Faber-Castell take ' Eberhard Faber '.
EFA were previously very strong with marketing polymer clay 'Fimo', both Staedtler and Faber-Castell, were marketing similar products and direct competition with each other, the acquisition of EFA means that they will have more craft products for the European market.
I guest since Sculpey is a popular brands and with good support, it will be good to introduce into the European retail Market. I'm not sure whether it will be long term, I suspect not, since most of the staff marketing 'Fimo' at Staedtler were also acquired by Faber-Castell. Who's to Know maybe EFA might re-brand Premo Classic to EFA Classic and EFA Soft.

Thanks, Garie! You know, this explains something that Munro's said to me last week. We were talking about the clay I was buying, and she made some comments about being very frustrated with the clay they were trying to get in stock. At the time, her words were cryptic, and she wouldn't say more. I suspect, now, t hat the reason they are having difficulty is because the transition of distributorship is still a little fuzzy as to who is shipping what to whom, and when. Thanks for the link!

(I'm confused, but that's kind of normal state:) Martha   From:   Melody01   Sep-18 1:51 am  To:  simgarie  (10 of 17)    65709.10 in reply to 65709.6  Garie, Thanks for your helpful info. It's good to keep up on the manufacturing/business side of the medium we use. There certainly have been all sorts of changes in the past year.

I had also heard that the Staedtler company is a bit less than "user friendly". Anita in AZ www.MelodyObeauDesigns.com www.melobeau.blogspot.com/ Edited 9/17/2010 2:19 pm by Melody01

Well, nuts. That kind of thing doesn't bode well for Munro's. Too bad... there has never been problems with them being out of stock on a color before now. I guess I should get used to it, huh?

Cat, I think ALL the mail order sources have been in the same boat and getting only spotty Fimo supplies, as Staedtler works on the re-lableing. ARG! Glad I'm mostly a PREMO kind of gal (except for the Fimo Classic trans.)

I wish I could go back in time and stock up on Fimo classic about 10 years ago!!

Hm. This may be another reason Polyform put the kibash on Studio Clay.

That might be the scenario ;-) Regards, Garie   From:   simgarie   Sep-18 8:17 am  To:  Melody01  (17 of 17)    65709.17 in reply to 65709.10  Hi Anita, Changes is good and it shows that the PC medium is getting very popular, more new PC and products, more options and cheaper pricing. Thanks, Regards, Garie
