We had a stormy time in Milwaukee. Tornadoes, wind rain, flooding and lots of great beaders!!!
Show went well; met so many great designers, old customers and many new customers.
Had fun with our Beadhead buddies. Great seeing Lisa and Kelly; also nice to meet Lisa Peters and Joan Miller. Had fun with Darlene and shared stories with the Beckers from Clay River. The Toners were there with their enamel as well as Sara from C Koop. Wild Things and Elan in fine form with great beads. Such interesting and talented people. Had a great dinner with Dee, Karen and Virgina from Clasp on Clasp off and Virginia made a fab necklace with one of our porcelain tubes and one of Marla James pieces.
Gave out many of our "She Who Creates" buttons and loved seeing them on bags all over show!
Prepping now for Portland Whole Bead Show and the Tacoma Puget Sound Bead Festival.
Forget to bring camera so have no pictures.
We just heard we won First Place in Bead Arts Contest for Interweave. Norma Dalton's Brooch with our porcelain cabochon!!!! Hooray!!
