an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
Thank you to everyone who pre-ordered the Pattern Book yesterday, or emailed, signed up for a workshop, or bought beads. It was great to hear from you all and it will take me all week to get through your notes, so please bear with me. It was especially lovely to read all of the offers to help, and the stories from people about how CGB exploded their beadworld.
There were a few errors in the shop items; our Warm and Cool Assortments (which are lovely, and ready to ship) have 9 boxes of Delicas, not seven as I accidentally typed. They also come with samples of 11° and 15° Miyuki rounds, always useful.
Also, the big $250 Book Release Bead Kit (a big fundraiser for the fellowship fund) was not listed as an option in it’s own menu, but now it is. This is going to be a really special one, and a good value too- over 30 colours of our favorite Delicas, and including the colours of the yellow and blue Star Spirals from our recent pattern release, in addition to colours from some of our flower faces, Starflowers and more. We should have all of the beads in to ship them by the end of March.
I’ll be back with you soon, and this week we will also be adding the original works to the shop; there is some checking in with the artists needed to verify pricing, etc.
I am so excited that the release is getting close. Once you remind me what I already bought years ago, I will order everything else. I bought your beads today. Happy, happy.
