In the first issue of the year, there is a report on Tucson (including a few pictures!) written by Helen Dahms, information and pictures about the Kumihimo program, the Dairyland Seed Company event, and the Bead-In. There's also a letter from our President about what she's been working on since the beginning of the year, and she'd like to know what you are working on as well! Post a picture or comment on our Facebook page to get in on the fun!
Our final issue for the year discusses the two sales we held in November - Loominosity and Jewelry at the Domes, the new lending library we will be starting in January, the Challenge, and much more!
Update: We regret to inform you that Maria Rypan will not be joining us at the 2013 Spring Retreat.
Our third issue of the year has pictures from the Bead&Button Show and discusses the LBS member who lives the farthest: Patty McCourt from Nottingham, England! There is also an article about Lisa Binkley, including a picture of one of her breathtaking pieces. There's a bead store review for Tender Buttons in New York and some beady tips and tricks.
This issue features an article about a class the Community Service committee (and volunteers) held at Vision Forward, assisting visually impaired women in making wire-wrapped cuff bracelets plus a few pictures. There's also a scoop on Marilee Rockley and how she became an author and an online teacher on Craftsy. On top of that there's a trip report from Diana Hershaw, a letter from our President, information on future events, and more!
