I am so excited to be going to Bead Fest Texas! Tomorrow, I will be at “Meet the Teachers” and then help staff the Dallas Bead Society table. On Sunday, I will assist my friend Ralonda in her “Waves of Grace” class and then help at the ticket booth. I had to miss last year’s event for a family obligation, so I’ve really been looking forward to this. Especially, the shopping!
I also taught a class at Artful Bead, today. Sherry and I worked on a St. Petersburg chain bracelet and a Spiral Rope necklace. I’m teaching 3 more classes there between now and December, and you can check them out here. I also updated the Beading Contest Calendar.
Now for the grand announcement: The winner of the copy of “New Beadwork” is…Karen/kshan2000!! Congrats and keep an eye out for my email so I can get the book to you. Thank you so much to everyone who entered and left comments. It was amazing to read each one. I think as a group we are ahead of some in the crafty community because they aren’t ready to call what they do art. I was thrilled to read all the strong convictions that beading is an artform!
