Bead Class and Craftopia

I have a 3 hour introduction to glass beadmaking class with one spot open for you! Sunday morning, March 28th, 9-noon in Northampton (actually Florence). You'll get to melt glass with a torch and leave having made some of your very own beads! It's lots of fun, I promise...
$50 for the class, all materials included.

Upcoming craft show on April 11th. This will be my first adventure down there to RI, but it looks like it will be a good one!

And....Last but not least...

**Save the Date- Opening May 21 through May 30**
