Madison AGAB is here!

Vending, classes, and more...

Hi!  I created my mailing list based on a number of different factors: how we met - students, customers, folks who signed up on my clipboard, friends, or relatives; where we met - craft show, farmers market, class, bead show, or somewhere else; and if you're near Milwaukee or not.   I hope I put you in the right group to receive the information you want.  If not, please scroll all the way down either to change your preferences or to unsubscribe.

Blog posts not to be missed!

Before I tell you all about my upcoming events, did you know I have a blog?  In 2014, my goal is to blog every day about the projects I'm working on, the events I'm preparing for, and whatever crafty topics come up.  Here are a few recent posts:  

Upcoming Events

Madison Art Glass and Bead Show

March 21-23, 2014
Alliant Energy Center, Madison, Wisconsin

I will be all over the Madison Art Glass and Bead Show this weekend!
  • On Friday night I'm teaching one of the Make 'n Take projects.  It will be a wire-wrapped beaded key.
  • On Saturday (10:00-5:00) and Sunday (10:00-4:00) I'll have a table on the show floor along with quite a number of other vendors.  It's a good-sized show - there's a lot to look at, but it's not overwhelming.  I'll have kits, tutorials, keys, dominoes, pendants, and a few tools.  Call me Purple Mist for a 20% discount!
  • Saturday night from 6:00 to 8:00 I'm teaching a class for my "It's Got Legs" design.  It's $50, which includes the kit in your choice of four colorways.  I really like this bracelet - it's a variation on Right Angle Weave, and it is extremely versatile for different types and sizes of beads.  I'll be including instructions on how to make a matching pair of "Dainty Flower" earrings.  To register, click here and search for Traci.  That will bring up my class.  Click the "It's Got Legs" link, and a new window will pop up.  Also, you can register at the show on Saturday.

Quadrille class at Knot Just Beads

March 26, 2015

Knot Just Beads
4309 S. 76th Street, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Let this bracelet dance along your wrist!  It's another variation on Right Angle Weave and uses Super Duos, Rizos, 4mm beads, and seed beads.  Stop in at Knot Just Beads to register or call 414-771-8360.

Bead&Button Show

May 28 - June 9, 2014
Wisconsin Center
400 W. Wisconsin Avenue, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

The Bead&Button Show is "the biggest consumer bead show in the world!"  I am teaching a class and will have a table at the Meet the Teachers Reception:
  • The Meet the Teachers Reception is on Wednesday, June 4th, from 8:00p to 11:00p. This will be my third year participating in this event.  It's a large room packed with instructors and shoppers, and the energy is wonderful!  For $15 you can "meet the teachers" and do a little early shopping before the Show floor opens.  I'll have a table with my kits, tutorials, keys, and possibly a few other goodies.  The Purple Mist discount applies here, too!
  • My "Cobblestone Path" class is on Friday, June 6th, from 5:00p-8:00p.  It's $115, which includes supplies and instructions on how to make matching "Dainty Flower" earrings.  There may also be a few other surprises.  In this wider version of "It's Got Legs", Super Duos turn a slim, elegant bracelet into a bold statement. Rizos along each edge give the piece a little funky attitude.  Click here for more information and to register.
Thanks for reading!  I hope to see you at at least one of my events.  If you can't come, please check out what I have available in my Etsy shop.
