This year I will be taking three classes. My first class is "Wire Finishing Techniques" taught by Adrienne Gaskell. My second class is "Paper Clip Bead Looming" taught by Judy Walker. My third class is "Kumihimo Sparks" sponsored by Swarovski Elements and taught by Jamie North. I always look forward to the classes and learning new techniques and skills.
Only a few more days to wait! Hope to see you there!
