Hi Deb,

"I've already received my machine. Used it yesterday. It's a big help -- like having a sumo wrestler helping you out for the day in your studio, conditioning your clay... and you don't even have to feed him. Thanks for inventing this!"

Jane, NY

Thank you so much for creating this! It makes softening Sculpey so easy, and my hands can relax! After 12 years sculpting pets, I can honestly say, it will be with out the aches and strains.

Hi, Deb,

I've been meaning to get back to you about my new NeverKnead, and finally have a moment to write. I am loving it SO much! I had some OLD Kato clay that had hardened even worse than when it was new - and you know difficult it used to be with the older Kato. I used the NeverKnead, with a little bit of clay softener, and was able to make it not only useable, but soft and pliable!  

I'm leaving next Wednesday to go to Las Vegas for the Clay Carnival (my first time there), and since I'm driving, and have no weight limit, I plan to take it with me. They give us Kato clay to use in the workshops there, and I'll bet I have mine conditioned before anyone else!

I'm Vice President and Treasurer of our local guild, the Tucson Polymer Clay Guild, and also plan to take it with me to the next guild meeting. We meet the second Saturday of each month, except February, when we are fortunate enough to have a fantastic group of polymer clay artists come to Tucson for the Gem and Mineral Show, and most of us take classes from them. Christie Friesen, Lisa Pavelka, and Karen Lewis are usually all here for the show, and also teach classes. We have a no-host dinner every year where they come out with us to a local Mexican restaurant, and it's great fun!

So, hopefully I will be taking some videos at the Clay Carnival, and also at our next guild meeting to share with you. If I can, I'll try to get some of the instructors to use it and get a video of them...maybe even Donna Kato!

Thanks for the fast shipment - I was so happy to be able to have it in time for the trip.

Best Regards,

Mary B, Tucson AZ

"This machine is fantastic and works better than I ever imagined. I highly recommend it for anyone that does a lot of claying, it saves so much time and effort. I have been finding other uses for my NEVERknead and added another post showing them..." and in a follow up email: "Thanks a million Deb for this great tool." - Donna Marie / serenityclay.com

"I don't know whether to laugh or cry. My NeverKnead, Norman, arrived today, and I've been playing with it ever since. I had a good idea of what I'd experience from the videos on the website, but I really didn't expect to be so taken with it so quickly. I fell in love with Norman so hard there was an audible thump.

I have both systemic lupus and fibromyalgia, so working with poly clay had pretty much become impossible for the last several years. It broke my heart to pack away all my clay, tools and sketches when it became just too difficult to condition clay to any degree at all. No more, not with Norman on hand! I turned a 10-year-old block of Fimo clay that was suitable only as a doorstop into a beautifully-soft lump of clay just waiting to be made into something lovely in no time. I am *never* going back to kneading by hand or cranking endlessly on my pasta machine.

I have trouble with both my joints as well as tissue and muscle due to my medical conditions. In the last hour, I've been perfecting a two-handed fold-and-squish method to spread the mild exertion as evenly as possible between my shoulders and hands. I suppose if it were possible, I'd like a lever that could be used on either side, so that I could switch the hand I use to pull at will. But my two-handed approach seems to be working great, so I don't find any changes to be strictly necessary.

On a scale of 1 to 11: 11"

2 TESTIMONIALS FROM Kira & Ilysa's THE POLYMER CLAY ADVENTURE RETREAT:

"Last night, I sat down with my brand new Neverknead--it's turquoise--and 6 blocks of Souffle to use in for the racoon. I watched a tv show with my family and conditioned all of them before it was over. No muss, no fuss, no noise. Next, I'm going to tackle the Fimo clay I've had for ages and never used because I just couldn't deal with it's crumbliness when it wasn't conditioned AND how stiff it was. Just getting it to being able to work in the pasta machine was a pain. Every time I thought about using it, I found another project to work on instead. I have some things I'd like to do that really require a stiffer clay. So I'll let y'all know how that comes out. So far, it's got my vote."


and this one:

"I bought a Never Knead machine for just such a purpose. My sister gave me a bag of old dry clay which I could not work and it crumbled horribly in the pasta machine. Every day I work about 5-10 minutes with the Never Knead and some drops of softener and I figure in about a month it will all be usable again. I made one of my cuffs with this clay and it worked beautifully. And my arthritic hands are not sore and hurting. Worth every cent."

Posted on NEVERknead Facebook page:

I am in the UK
I love the NK

It has been a dream to use
So very easy to set up
Well and safety packed

Did not take long to get to me

I have very weak hand and was finding conditioning small amounts of clay hard and painful work.

Up to now I use to get my friend to condition my clay.

I love clay so much and it fit in to my other hobbie so well.

I went ahead and ordered myself a NeverKnead

Oh my it as change every thing

Conditioning clay is no longer a problem for me and has become a joy. Strongly recommend NeverKnead to any one who has a hard time conditioning clay or finds it a chore

Such a wonderful machine would not be with out it.

Thank you so much xxxx

"Getting back into polymer clay was not even an option before I purchased this! With some arthritic changes and a hand injury, conditioning clay was not anything I could have done in a reasonable amount of time, but the Never Knead changed the whole scenario--now I can condition a block of clay faster then I could have 25 years ago when I had no physical limitations.

"YOU, dear heart, are BRILLIANT! I'll have to do just that! You certainly are creative! Thanks for sharing that with everyone.

I truly appreciate you thinking of some rubber ends, too! I'm very thankful for all your help these last couple weeks...and I'm praying your business prospers in the coming year FAR beyond anything you can possible even imagine at this point! 

You'll always be counted as one of my "unexpected blessings". Losing my friend so quickly has made me realize the importance of letting people know what a blessing they are, while I still can. And you ARE a blessing, Deb...far more than you realize. Your invention was a blessing - but it's your thoughtfulness, kindness and going the "extra mile" for your customers that sets you apart even more." - Ann B.

"Dear Debra Ann.
I want to say a big thank you for neverKnead! I have been playing with polymer clay for about 12 years. I have had 9 surgeries on my elbows, wrists, and hands in the past 10 years. This year it was my rotator cuff. Needless to say all these surgeries have hindered my abilities to pursue my love for this medium in the past few years.. I ordered the neverKnead within 10 minutes of seeing it advertised and it is by far one of the two best things I have ever purchased when it comes to polymer. I LOVE IT! The ease of this machine is phenomenal. Even with my surgery 4 weeks ago I am able to play with my polymer with no pain. The concept is ingenious...I hope you sell thousands of them! The amount of time that it saves conditioning and mixing is unbelievable...it is a godsend for any polymer clay artist.. I use all brands of clay but Kato is one of my favorites for caning due to its firmness and such great crisp lines when you are assembling and reducing. But Kato was always such a pain to condition. I spent a half hour pounding it with my hammer on all sides then running it through the pasta machine endlessly and now with neverKnead even Kato is a dream to condition in just minutes. Thank you, thank you, thank you, you have given me back the ability to sooth my creative side with this marvelous machine. My very best to you!"
Sincerely, Martha R., NY

Hi Deb,

I received my NEVERKnead today. I am so thrilled. Once I assembled it & read through the instructions I put it to the test. I decided to start with a hard but excellent clay - Kato. Within no time is was conditioned & felt so palpable to hold.

Thanks so much for creating this wonderful tool. I have no qualms now that with the use of the NK I can return to pursuing a craft I love & enjoy. The item is so well made that I reckon it will last longer than a lifetime. The ease of maintenance & the simplicity of cleaning between colours is fantastic. You & the NK have made conditioning Polymer Clay so easy & quick that it is enjoyable.

The NEVERKnead is a tool that anyone who works with Polymer Clay should own.

Thanks again

"I've only had mine for a couple weeks. I found it works nicely for mixing clay - either to condition or to mix colors... It makes a nice/different marble effect if you're mixing colors - not elongated like you would get from marbling in your pasta machine... BUT... today, i found an even more fantastic use for the NeverKnead... I grabbed a years-old square translucent cane that I had left rather large and cut off a hunk... Then, I used the NeverKnead to "wake-up" the old cane... I didn't use a lot of pressure on the clay because i didn't want to ruin the cane, but it woke that cane up great after a dozen or so gentle presses . I was able to reduce it quite a bit by just turning it to a new side before each press... Afterwards, I was able to squish the cane with my fingers (with no pain, i might add) and I could feel that the clay was mobile even in the center. An added benefit - the press makes the center of the cane "bubble" out at the ends - instead of sinking in... so less waste after. I did have some waste, more than if I reduce by hand, but not too much. NOW, I'm really happy with the purchase cuz this will give my hands many much-needed breaks from initial cane reducing. Once the cane was awake, it was relatively easy to reduce it the rest of the way to tiny... I did not try it on a round cane yet, but if i do, i'll let you know the results.

I almost forgot... it works great to impress clay with those photopolymer texture plates - the hard, deep, rigid ones I got from Grant Diffendaffer... I also tried it with a block-mounted rubber stamp - nice even depth impression... :)"

"Just unpacked and put my Neverknead to work. I haven't been claying as much as I used to due to progressive arthritis, but after working for just a few minutes with a whole 2 oz. package of Premo and the Neverknead I predict I will be doing a great deal more claying! Even with a pasta machine and motor I wasn't able to achieve the level of conditioning I've gotten with Neverknead. Thanks for your great invention." - Margaret H.,



"I love my neverKnead! It has helped tremendously. I did a quick post on my blog about my neverKnead and also posted it to Facebook and Pinterest.

I am one of 22 teachers making videos as part of an online polymer clay retreat. One must be a member in order to view the classes, so seeing me use my neverKnead for my class isn't going to be possible (unless you sign up). The retreat is $99 for 24 classes within a year. Anyway, I thought you might enjoy seeing my post...

I am doing a demonstration of the neverKnead at the Arizona Polymer Clay Guild this Saturday and will probably post that next week. I am also doing a demonstration of it September 26 in Prescott, Arizona for our polymer clay retreat where polymer clay artists from all over come for 3 full days of claying. I will post that also sometime during the first week of October.

Can you tell how much I adore your invention?

Thanks again for everything."
