Fueling The Passion

February Newsletter

February is here and so is your new board!  Our first board meeting will take place Saturday, February 25th, 10:30 am at Toni Tracy Studio 3485 University Ave., Riverside 92506.  In addition to officer reports we will discuss ideas for upcoming meetings and beefing up our membership.  Anyone interested in attending is welcome and your input will be appreciated.  A survey to assist us in these decisions will follow.

theMandrelOur first meeting of 2012 will be held at The Mandrel in Redondo Beach on March 24th, beginning at 10 am. The bead exchange theme will be big holed beads! Please bring a bead wrapped up nicely, along with your name, if you would like to participate. And don’t think that big holed beads have to go on a simple chain, look at this beautiful creation by Susan Walter!

TheGatheringDon’t forget to renew your ISGB membership! The Gathering is IN Bellvue, WA this year. It’s going to be a good one!!

For those of you who venture down to Tucson in February, be sure to stop by the Best Bead Show and say hello to our own Judy Carlson! If you’ve never been to Tucson for the bead shows, it’s quite the experience! Five bead shows, talk about eye candy! Plus every thing you need to do just about anything is at your fingertips. Check out the show schedule HERE!

Be sure to check out all the local studios for new class schedules too!

I am looking forward to serving as your president and look forward to meeting all of you at future meetings.
