Thursday 1st Feb
Surprised! yep Ive changed the site around a bit. Ive decided to prioritise my bead making
above all my other social bits a pieces. Im one of those suckers that can never say no, so hence Im always running around
for everyone else and not doing things for me. Stomp! so now its my turn. heee wonder how long it lasts??
Im on a new computer as my last one was fried with a power surge..doh! Hopefully I can work everything
out in the next week or so and get some recently made bead pics up.
Rockhounds Gem and Mineral Club
Adelaide lampworkers are now very lucky to have a monthly meet. Ive managed to secure club
rooms which are available quite often for our use. Every month I organise an agenda and go along on a Friday night hoping
that someone else turns up..hahaa luckily they do!!! We have around 16 members so far, which is great for the 5 months we
have been meeting. In the pipe line is a gallery exhibition and possibly a bead fair.
If your a lampworker and in Adelaide come on out South and meet like minded people.
Southern Rockhounds Gem & Mineral Club
Gerald Ct, Christies Downs.
7pm, 1st Friday of the month. First visit is ok as a non member,
after that you will need to join the club, cost is $20 for the year plus a one off joining fee of $10...each friday
night you visit we just need $3.00 to cover costs of refreshments etc..
There will be auctions, challenges, stalls to buy goodies, have a stall yourself, workshops and demos.....guest
speakers, exhibitions, fairs, show and tell the list is endless...
Hope you can make it.
On Sunday the 4th Feb, I will be firing up the torch as guest speaker at the Northern Beaders Network
in Holden Hill. There will be a few beads for sale and a display of my past work. I'll chat about beadmaking and
how I got started.
Balaklava Bead Fair
Im having a stall at the bead fair in Balaklava, March 3rd and 4th. Its the Adelaide Plains
Festival and we will be having a bead fair in the Balaklava Town Hall. Should be lots of fun, I'll have lots of lampwork
beads for sale and a nice display. Ok so its a bit of a drive (one hour from the Brickworks, Thebarton) but hey its
a Bead Fair!!!
Hope you have a great beady day! Yvonne
I look forward now that I have a chance to keep this site update, sharing my lampworking obsession.
