Newsletter for the week of August 1st

OMG can you believe that its August? This year is flying by us! We had our Christmas in July sale this past Saturday and a lot of you stocked up on some Christmas goodies. We sold out of quite a few Christmas themed beads and kits but we will be re-stocking them just as soon as possible. 

We have two great classes coming up this week.  On Tuesday (August 3rd) from 6-8 I will be teaching a class on the Autumn Craze Bracelet. This class is $30.00 and includes all of your supplies.  This has become on of my new favoirte bracelets to stitch because it's so easy.  You can do any design or colors of your choosing.  This is a two needle stitching technique and is great for beginner to advanced beaders.

On Saturday I will be teaching my absolute new favorite bracelet.  It is called the Loop-de-Loop bracelet and it is from 10-1.  This class is $40.00 and includes all of your supplies.  In this class students will be learning how to make a base using size 6 seed beads.  Once the base is completed students will learn how to embellish the base with 4mm bicone crystals. To help keep the cost down students will be using Preciosa Crystal color mixes in the class . This is a bracelet that looks like it has millions of crystals on the top and it feels wonderful when you wear it. To sign up for either of these classes be sure and sign up online at, call, or stop by the shop. 

I, and lots of others, have went Kumihimo Crazy.  If you are unfamilier with this technique well you won't be in the dark long! I am planning on doing a video for the website this week that will teach you this fun new technique.  Be sure to check on the site wednesday or thrusday to see how it works.

Hope each of you have a fabulous week!
