How was your experience?
Great time! This show has become a tradition for my friend and me and we enjoyed it a lot once again. She and I have several favorite sellers now and always check out what they have. I learned upon our arrival that there were free classes on several subjects by a bead craftswoman who also writes instructional beading books. I took one of her short classes and now know how to make knotted strings of beads (or repair strings of pearls). She was very clear in her instruction and I was able to purchase the books, tools, and supplies needed to string my many loose beads from past shows. It helps to know what you're looking for when you go, since it's easy to get exhausted walking and looking for hours on end. It's a lot of fun just the same.
