Maggie's In Town

Tonight's meeting of the Toronto Bead Society will no doubt be a treat, as the great speaker is none other than beadist extraordinaire, Maggie Meister of Amphora Designs ( Her topic is "Ancient Voices - Beadwork Inspired by Antiquity". She will also be teaching classes at Bead Junction this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday, one of which is for this fabulous bracelet called Solomon's Knot.

Alas, I have to work on Friday when this particular class is going on but I understand space is still available, so if you are interested in this piece or either of the other two amazing designs she will be teaching, you can read all about it here on the Bead Junction website: and/or call them to sign up.

Of course, if you can't make it to see Maggie this week in Toronto, you can always sign up for the beading retreat called Beading by the Bay and enjoy the added pleasure of first hand exposure to the talents and teachings of Marcia DeCoster and Jean Campbell in beautiful San Francisco.

Honestly, the opportunities for travel and brushing elbows with the beading gods available to those of us in the beading community are awesome, aren't they???
