Well, I’ve just unwrapped the latest version of The Beadworkers Guild quarterly Journal – and The Jacobeadery is featured in it! Shock, horror – is that really me and what I do? (Mind you , hubbie Mac commented on the ‘one-woman band’ bit – ‘What about all the things I do – like making tea, going fishing to keep out of your way – doesn’t that deserve a mention?’) It is always good to get feedback from other people as to how they perceive you and your work – both good and bad, and I welcome it gladly. If it’s good then I can carry on doing what I do. If bad then I have to change something to make it right.
On an encouraging note – the Mini Stocking Advent Calendar will be available for sale next week. Halfpenney’s Beads (Kathryn & Gordon) and I are hoping to hold a workshop on November 5th making (or starting to make) this calendar – places are limited and the cost should be around £45 which includes all refreshments but not lunch. (If you’ve not been to a workshop at Halfpenneys yet then you’ll be in for a treat – Gordon is a wiz baker!)
Next in line to be on sale will be the wire edge ribbon brooch kit – that hopefully will be the week after the advent calendar.
So now going to go back through the Journal and read all the other articles while hubbie’s watching football.
