Fall is in full splendor, the colours as magnificent as ever, change is everywhere and it is hard not to feel creative with a hint of nesting instinct pulling us indoors as we approach the impending cooler weather.

Many of my customer’s have requested Bead Looming classes. Karla a very skilled beader has offered to teach it. We will be holding several classes this month on Basic Bead Looming and Intermediate Bead Looming!

Discover just how much fun Bead Looming can be. This easy and enjoyable art form blends beautifully to jewellery with it’s historic origins in the North American Indians. They adorned and wore the most intricate art designs made by the females of the Tribes.

BASIC BEADING LOOMING will teach you how to set up and thread your loom and how to incorporate the beads. Participants will also learn how to properly finish off their piece and make it into a bracelet

Class will be offered on Wednesday October 9th at 7:00 pm and a repeat of this class will be offered again on Sunday October 20th at 2:00 pm

BEAD AND BEYOND – Why not bring the theme of the Fall Harvest into your home. Napkin rings made out of the rusts, oranges, olive greens and the warm browns. Seed beads are the perfect choice to work in all the fall colours.

Wine charms made out of wire and charms in a Halloween theme. These are perfect for hostess gifts and the children will love to join in and make them too.

Congratulations to the winners of the Fall Harvest ticket auction. Maya, Maddie, Jan, Gennie, and Nancy! Enjoy all your goodies. It is always fun to win a gifts full of all your favourite interests.

Every FRIDAY between 1 and 4 pm, we hosts “Girls Just want to have fun” – This group is for those who love to interact with fellow beaders. In order to join in, I ask that your beads and findings are purchased at our store, bring your own tools (have them marked with your initials) and most of all a happy disposition!

Remember to leave your problems behind and BEAD HAPPY!
