Greetings to our Beading Friends

Albert Einstein’s statement “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions”. Certainly the beginning of March sparks one’s imagination about the coming of spring and all that it brings. Just thinking of spring colours gives joyous inspiration to creative endeavours for many. We hope that you find things in your environment…birds returning, birds singing, lovely late winter sunrises and  sunsets, and more frequent sightings of wildlife that excite your imagination.

We are looking forward to the visit of Anne Marie Deslauniers this month. Her two workshops will certainly be a breath of spring for participants. The beaded doll and the landscape pendant have great potential to use spring colours.

Our bead suppliers in China are all warning about delays in gemstone bead shipments. We understand that some are slowly getting back to work but there will be delays throughout the supply chain for many weeks. While we are reasonably well stocked on most items coming from China, we thought we should let you know that some items may not be possible to restock in a timely way. Like everyone, we pray in our way that all our friends and contacts weather this situation well.

Wishing you all the very best as we transition to the revitalisation of spring. We have a lot for which to be grateful.


Meredith, Brent and Carrie
