Our Day At Caravan Beads


Getting ready for a day of teaching at Caravan Beads:  www.caravanbeads.com.  The guy to the left is Barry. His head looks just like a camera with a big lens.  Folks are wandering around collecting their wits and their beads. I will eventually remember to take my coat off.  Oh, that's me to the right.

Who is that lovely woman above in the blue shirt?  That's one of our "social networking" winners, Christina (Good Quill Hunting). She lives in the Portland, Maine area so was able to meet us at Caravan Beads to pick up her loom. As terrific in person as she is on paper (or on computer). Check out Christina's blog:  http://goodquillhunting.wordpress.com/



It begins.  We're off.  Smooth sailing all the way. I barely had to teach.  Indeed, even though the Caravan staff had not woven on the Mirrix Loom before, they were able to translate all their other bead knowledge into instant success. Eventually, I just sat back and watched Elena and Barry invent a new way to put on heddles.  



Look at those smiles!!!



One of many walls of beads and other great things to buy. If you've never had the pleasure of visiting Caravan in person, maybe you should. It's worth a plane ride or a long car ride. It's just plain worth it. Plus, the staff there knows how to set up and use the Mirrix Loom.
