Getting excited! Amy Waldman- Smith's visit

Less than a week!

Amy arrives Thursday. We hope to get a quick tour of the Alamo and dinner on the Riverwalk in Thursday before she gets down to business! Fridays crochet bracelet class is full of excited students! Don't worry there is room for 2 more if you want to join us - just call soon. I went shopping yesterday at Mica's for the size 8 seed beads we will be using in the bead crochet class. This is what I picked out.

I admit I have no idea how this works. My experience with seed beads is in costume making. Belly dancing costumes that is. I can't wait to see the crochet bracelets we'll be making. I hope to add this skill to my jewelry I think these crochet beads necklaces are elegant.

Friday's class is just the beginning Amy is also teaching the Ottoman Bead 2 day class while she is here.
These beads are the most intricate and exquisted lampwork beads you have seen.

Saturday March 3  Amy will be teaching day one of the Ottoman bead class.
That night at 6:30 we will have a meet and greet for Amy and she will be doing a Demo at 7 pm all here at Dream Fire Studio. This event is sponcered by the San Antonio Glass Art Guild SAGAG and the Society of Artisan Lampworker in San Antonio SALSA the local ISGB chapter

Amy will have her beads for sale too starting Friday!

So I'm excited! Not only is Amy an excellent teacher and talented beadmaker she is my friend!
Hope to see you there!
