What a busy Fall!

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:19 am by LindaG

The good part of being busy is it means lots is going well and there is much interest in what you do.  The bad part of being busy means that you don’t edit your blog very often.  Sheesh!

September was a very busy month for us.  Here’s a little of what was going on:

Sharilyn Miller's book

Sherilyn Miller’s latest book came out and our very own Ms. Eugenia was featured with two of her creations inside.  It was very exciting for all of us to see.

Even more exciting was seeing Eugenia sell autographed copies of the book – what a wonderful recognition of her talent.

Now I am fired up to start organizing Eugenia’s very own book!  I think she has more than enough talent to fill a project book – don’t you think?  Let us hear your thoughts.

Speaking of books, Judy was very hard at work for the entire month writing her own chapter in a book soon to be published.  Her work will be included with the likes of Dr. Stephen Covey (The Seven Highly Effective Habits . . . . yes, that Stephen Covey!).  The book has a working title of GPS for Success and Judy has writtten a wonderful chapter on setting and acomplishing goals.  Keep a look out for it in the new year.

continues to invite us to present and sell our work at this highly fashionable and unique craft market.  Located in the Rocky Mountain Terminal Building close to Clark and Terminal Avenue, we are seeing lots of people starting their Christmas shopping. 

Be sure to stop by – we have lots of interesting items like our purse hooks and polymer covered pens that would make unique gifts and great stocking stuffers.

Teaching in Ladner!

 More exciting news is that we will now be teaching our Wire Wrap and Polymer Clay classes in Ladner

This will greatly please the people who want to take classes with Eugenia but don’t want to make the long trek out to Deep Cove. 

The Upstart Crow, a beading and craft store in historic downtown Ladner, is going to host our classes.  Visit the Crow’s website at www.upstartcrow.ca to see the schedule and to register.

And last but not least, Linda started teaching her Introduction to Polymer Clay and is busy getting as many people as she can, addicted to her favorite passion – playing with clay. 

The versatility of the clay, to mix and match with other beads, and especially when combined with Eugenia-style wire wrapping – is really irresistable. 

Starting people off with a good foundation of the basic skills has been a lot of fun. 

With international stars such as Julie Picarello coming to Linda’s house in November, it will be a great time to share with everyone.

And now, we are well into October and you can find us at the Fraser Valley Bead Show. 

Three days of sharing the joy of beading with as many people as possible. 

Come out and see the great selection of beads, sign up for classes to improve your skills and look at all the dazzling eye-candy. 

Here is the link for the show, times and admission cost – hope to see you there!  http://www.fraservalleybeadshow.ca



  1. What a pleasure it was to meet you at the bead show the other day Linda! Hopefully we can get together sometime soon, if we can get our crazy schedules to line up. That is very exciting that you have Julie coming up to teach at your place. Wish you guys a lot of success with your event!

    Congratulations on a great blog. It will be an invaluable resource for clayers in the lower mainland and beyond. All the best to the three of you.
