There was laughter! There was fun! There were prizes! There was food! What was it? Bead-Treat!
Seven women, coming from locales stretching from Amherstburg in Southwest Ontario through to Montreal, Quebec, and several points in-between, came together for three classes with three instructors over the May 4 – 6 weekend.
Situated on the beautiful Fanshawe College campus in London, the participants learned how to construct Cavandoli end caps with Angela Peace, create a statement chainmaille bracelet with Marilyn Gardiner, and how to do sparkly beaded components to create a variety of projects with Pamela Kearns.
We had lots of participation from our suppliers too, who provided lots of goodies for goodie bags and give-a-ways!
On behalf of BeadFX, thank you to everyone who make our first retreat a success! Thank you to all of the participants who came out to our first retreat, and to the instructors who shared their knowledge and enthusiasm. Thank you to the goodie bag sponsors: John Bead, TierraCast, Caravan Beads, the BeadSmith, Frabels, and Triple M Tours. Thank you also to Mhai O Mhai Beads and Umicore (Jewellery and Industrial Metals) who provided door prizes over the weekend.
