Bead And Button Show - 20088:20 PM
Here I am at my demo table on preview night.
It was a great weekend. Our new booth lay out looked great and is actually a lot easier to set up and to tear down (BONUS!). I really enjoyed teaching lots of different techniques - from WigJigs to knitting spools to using Soft Flex and Soft Touch. I demoed my Double Strand Earrings Project quite a bit, but using CZ's instead of Czech glass beads - very pretty! I picked up a kumihimo board and plan to toodle around with that this coming week. We are currently introducing a new product, Econoflex. It is not for sale yet - we are taking pre-orders for stores and distributors. It is a beading wire for craft and hobbyists, as well as beginners. It will be a lower cost bead stringing wire. It is not for a professional designer but more for someone that is either just getting started, cost conscious or just use wire for craft projects (beaded lampshades, fan pulls, embellishing drapes, etc).
