My bags are packed, and I’m ready to go…..

To Louisville, KY for the International Society of Glass Beadmakers annual conference, The Gathering!  Loads of demonstrations, presentations, open torch time, bead trading, vendors to shop with, and my favorite part…..the Bead Bazaar!

If you’re anywhere near the area on Saturday, July 30th, it would be well worth your time to come to the Kentucky International Convention Center, Exhibit hall 1-A.  There will be over 100 glass artists with their creations on display.  Admission is only $5, and its a great opportunity to see your favorite beadmakers’ work in person instead of on a computer screen.

Mother and I will be with our chapter, The Smoky Mountain Firecrackers, at table number 5, right inside the entrance to the bazaar.  Stop by and say hello!  We’d love to put faces with some of the names we’ve become so familiar with over the years.  😀  Here’s a little preview of our table during our practice setup at the last meeting….and it will look even MORE awesome on Saturday!

I’ll try to update and post some pictures while I’m there, but its a super busy week.  So if you don’t hear from me until we get back next week, I’ll be sure to fill you in with all the details.  Bead on!  😀
