Bead and Button is this week.  A note from The Pres:

Below is a link to the Bead and Button call for entry.

The last day for drop off of beads is Monday, June 1st. You can either contact Cindi Brunell or me regarding drop off. 

We are also encouraging you to send the following
    - business cards/post cards
    - orphan beads to be given away with sales over $35
    - a couple of beads marked "free" for us to hide among your regularly priced beads.
        (bag them up separately if you are doing this)

You can also send a couple of pieces of jewelry that are example of things that can be done with your beads. It does help sell your beads. I would suggest  bright colors for your samples and be sure they are priced.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions -

Welcome to our new website!

This is a blog-based website which, we hope, will better fit the needs of the guild.  There is a pro/con list below in a previous posting.  Please feel free to comment and let us know what you think. There are still a few kinks to work out and Candy is going to do some visual tweaking to the site.  So it's not 100% finished but getting close.

One thing that we need from everyone are photos from our members for the gallery.  Currently the gallery just has photos that I had from submissions from Winter Wonders that I used to test the gallery.  Send me your most current photos or those of your greatest work and I'll throw them up on our gallery.

If you find anything that is not SELF explanatory, please send an email to me at
