Some come on in, and get your favorite Day of the Dead Charms, before they're gone again.
I've been having a wonderful time with the new SuperDuo precision cut twin beads. If you want to make something colorful that works up quick and feels really good, my Magic Carpet Bracelet class is for you (see pic above): Tuesday, October 16th, 6-9 PM, $35. At first glance the beads seem odd, but once you get the hang of how to work with them there are so many possibilities. We are in process of getting all 70 colors tubed for you. They are very affordable, starting at $1.80 for 10 grams.
Tomorrow we have an Intro to Kumihimo class with Wendy at 6:00. This is a great opportunity to learn the ancient Japanese braiding technique. On Sept 25th, there is a fabulous beaded rope class that uses Kumihimo techniques. Create a "Blooming Braid" with flowers that spiral around it. I made the flower medallion using the SuperDuo beads. I will have the instructions for the Flower Medallion available on Sept 25th. There is still time to sign up for both kumihimo classes.

here. But I am going to wean down on that and ask you all to either follow the blog as a "follower" or check from time to time. I have over 1000 customers in my database, and it is becoming cumbersome to send mass emails. Plus, not everyone likes having their inboxes stuffed. So, if you want to find out about new classes, products, and offers, stay in touch with this blog. Soon, poppybeads.com will be a "real" website. We are building it now and it is very exciting. I am also now tweeting updates @PoppyfieldBeads, so follow us on twitter.
Hope to see you soon. 'Til then I'll be blogging, tweeting, and beading.
Remember Monday night is late night...We are open til 8:00 PM.
