Last Thursday I went to Lexington, MA with some members of the Bead Society of New Hampshire to see Dianne Fitzgerald speak. Dianne had wonderful slides, including some of very old beads in her private collection, and gave a great talk. There were lots of laughs, opportunities to meet new beaders, even time afterwards to talk to Dianne and buy her kits and wonderful books. By the way, she gave two classes in the following days, which was a wonderful opportunity for you all. To have such top caliber instructors available to us in the east is a treasure you want to take advantage of, if you possibly can.
Many thanks to Beadesigner International, Inc. for inviting Dianne and sharing her with guests, we all had a very nice evening and appreciated your hospitality.
