If you are in St. Louis on Friday night, you can go hang out with Kate McKinnon at The Bead Place. She is bringing her beads and her black velvet lined bead tray to The Bead Place for some fun in the evening. Check out her blog for details. This is not a workshop, just beaders hanging out and having fun. If it weren't for the 825 mile drive to get to St. Louis, I'd be there in a heartbeat. Go to Kate's blog and take a look at the details. She welcomes email if you have any questions about it.
Next, go view some groovy beadwork Kate and Dustin Wedekind have been doing for their upcoming book Geometrics (on facebbok)Geometrics(the website), go take a look. These pieces are awesome.
Also check out Kate's posts during the Seed Bead Summit back in May and you will see how the idea for this book came about. You'll also get to see Marcia DeCoster, Teresa Sullivan, and Jean Power at work with Kate and Dustin. It was pretty amazing to read these posts as they came out and get a peek at the birth of the book.
