April: Mark your calendars for a 2 day Master Class with Andrea. It will be Cabachon Bead Embroidery with Bezel Building. You will be working with 1 Stone and Coordinated Chantons. DATES: (Sat / Sun) April 2nd & 3rd (10 - 4pm ) both days COST: $150 plus supplies for the class. This does include both days.

Andrea will be putting together some groupings with her great color and style sense for all of us to choose from or give us some ideas to help us get started. I say us because I plan on attending as a student as well. All the supplies will be in the shop and available to purchase. If you have a special Cabachon you are free to use it for the class.

Here are some samples of the style of pendant Andrea will be teaching.

 __Open Beading Table Time at the shop will be       2 times a week.

Book a "FUNDAY" - Yes I'll open up the shop if you need a special Funday Time! I'm flexible and I want people to enjoy the shop. No Space or Teaching Fee for casual learning sessions! Give me a jingle.


 Interesting Groups for Beaders:

Upper Midwest Bead Society Calendar:  The group is a great social group and now with covid have still remained active with its members by presenting interesting virtual meeting opportunities. Fun topics. Feel free to check them out. I really started to get involved with their meetings so I'm looking forward to return to that close and in-person time. They are a great group with always interesting topics.

If you are in the Rochester Area, here is another group I'd like to check out. The Beader's Society of Southeast MN.

LOOSE BEAD SOCIETY OF GREATER MILWAUKEE: Beaders are happy interesting people. Why? They love what they do and they come from all vocations with a artist flair! So true for this group!

I have customers all over the United States so if you have a bead group you want to let others know about I'll post them here! Just email me a quick "why visit or join" to :
