Aloha from various parts of the world!8:00 AM
Aloha! It is that time of year again. Time for the Soft Flex Company Glass Art & Bead Festival in Hawaii. Sadly, I will not be there. However our wonderful Hawaiian Soft Flex'ers will be. The beautiful and talented Jennifer Wilson (Soft Flex Trade Show Manager) will also be on on hand. Perhaps she will send me a guest blog to post so that we can all be jealous? If you happen to go and bump into Andrew Thornton of Green Girl Studios, it is his birthday this week and you should wish him a happy birthday. So, if you are in Hawaii and would like to attend, here are the details. It will be the Most Spectacular Beading Event of the year in the Hawaiian Islands.

And finally (as if all of that wasn't enough to be doing in one weekend), Soft Flex Owners Mike Sherman & Scott Clark are in China at the Asia's Biggest International Jewellery Fair. Soft Flex Company is proudly sharing space with Oriental Gemco, one of the best sources for fine gemstones, in the Asia World Expo - Hall 3 - #3J02, 3J04, 3J06, 3K01, 3K03, 3K05. If you happen to be in China and would like details, please visit their website to learn more about times and location. Let's all hope that Mike & Scott will send us photos of their experiences in China. I know that I for one would love to see and hear about what they are doing in Asia, but I can't make any promises since they are and will be very busy selling and demonstrating the superior quality in the very best beading wire that the world has ever seen. Overkill? Maybe. I can't help it. It is really and truly what I believe.
So as you can see, we are all busy little bees this week! Hopefully you can join us at one of our 3 locations!
