Show Your Colors Book Signing at The Bead Cache by Jamie Hogsett9:56 AM
Thank you to everyone who came to The Bead Cache in Fort Collins last Saturday! It was a great afternoon filled with visits from familiar friends and new faces. We made lots of braided wire rings while people looked through and tried on some of the projects from Show Your Colors. Watching people use colored wire for the first time and loving it is one of my favorite parts of the job, along with teaching them to use a new tool, like Mighty Crimpers or the Knitting Spool. I love the sparkle that appears in the eyes of beaders while they begin designing new projects in their minds...
Spending an afternoon in such an excellent bead store is always a treat, especially with such a great selection of beads to tempt me. Hanging out with Rachel, Dawn, and Lauren was great fun too! I can't wait to see what everyone makes with their new wire and tools!
