Poster, “56 Pieces”, is shipping now!

Posters are in, gorgeous, and shipping- they will arrive all month, I expect. We are sending them free to bead stores that sell Delicas and seed beads, so if you’d like to make sure your favorite store gets one, please leave the name of it (and if possible the mailing address and web site) of it in the Comments section.  We love our bead stores, and want to send them pretties and feature them in our living Index.

Have you ordered your copy yet?

      Hi! We haven’t sent out foreign posters yet- each one is quite expensive to ship. First, domestic, and then as we can, to the corners of Terra. We want each bead shop to have one, but it costs me about $30 each to send them, out of pocket.

      Slowly but surely!

    Hi Kate, I own an art gallery and gift shop where I sell designer jewelry and also teach beadweaving classes. I have purchased both volumes of your book. I purchase my beads wholesale from Caravan Beads in Portland, Maine then resell to the students in smaller quantities. I am not sure if I qualify but love those posters. If I don’t qualify, is there someplace they can be purchased? Dianne Jacques Arabella Gallery & Gifts 65 Main St. Windsor, VT 05089 802-674-5111

    Kate… We spoke about the opening of my store on Long Island… It will be opening at the end of this month. When ordering my delicas… I ordered all the colors listed in your first book… Figured that was a good start. I would love to display your poster to get everyone interested in CGB… And to buy beads of course:)
