More, More, MORE Classes!

In yesterday's post, I mentioned the Santa Fe Bead Fest project being taught by Judy Martin.

SaturdaySequins commented she thought Judy was also teaching the Starstruck pendant at the Bead & Button Show in June.

Sure enough, she is! Here's a link if you are interested.

So, I'll give you 3 guesses as to where I have been for the last hour thanks to Saturday Sequins...yep, the Bead & Button show website!! It's being held June 1 - June 10, 2012 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, US.

I searched classes and instructors and saw every technique in the book along with the best of the best instructors from A to Z! WOW!! There are a handful sold out, so you better get moving if you are planning to attend!

I was curious about the macrame projects being taught and found these ADORABLE bracelets pictured above!! This is called the Spiny Knotted Bracelet and is taught by Stephanie Sersich. I love the variations pictured and think they are perfect for June, the colors are so bright and cheerful! Here is the description, enjoy!

"We’ll use floss and waxed linen to bind beads and other treasures into a funky bracelet. The materials and techniques used in this class provide an opportunity for self-expression -- there is no pattern to follow and the beads will vary in size, color, and shape. The unusual materials and larger bead sizes seem to level the playing field for beginners and long-time beaders."
