Facebook News! In January I mentioned my new Facebook Page, but as you may know, Facebook changed everything with "Timelines"! So, I now have ANOTHER new look. I'm really happy with the re-design: click on the tabs for Welcome, Free Projects, and Shop Now to have a look. (You'll notice that I haven't worked on the Photos tab yet.) Thanks to Garrett Borland for the creative work!
Bead & Button ShowI'm planning now for the Bead & Button classes in Milwaukee, June 1-10. First, if you haven't yet decided to go, time is getting short-only 37 more days. Here's a link to the search page. And my classes are here. I'm really excited about this show because I've never been to it, and I can't wait to experience "the largest consumer bead show in the world".
I'd really like your HELP
in deciding which kits to bring for Meet the Teacher Night
. I can't bring them all! I have only one 8-foot table! Send me an email listing your TOP FIVE favourite kits
. And yes, I'll have a reward for you.
Toronto Bead Society Spring Bead Fair
I hope to see many of you at the May 26-27 Bead Fair
. I'm looking forward to seeing the new location and to teaching two classes
. One is my favourite Love Knot Necklace
(in sterling or Jeweller's Bronze), and the other is NEW: a Jens Pind Bracelet
(sterling or copper) and Necklace
(silver-filled). The bracelet is suitable for either a man or a woman, and the necklace features a beaded centre section with gemstones.
In my last newsletter I asked for ideas for new kits for the coming year. I had 2 excellent suggestions: thank you Debbie & Robbie--enjoy your new gemstone bracelets. Watch for new kits coming later this year based on their suggestions.
