Oh my, is it time to think about it again? I've got to get through the Best Bead Show first!

I'll be there, same booth as last year, with both lampwork flowers and intermediate/advanced seed beading patterns and kits.

Would someone like to tell exactly what it is? I hear the shows mentioned, but can't really imagine what happens, what it's like to be there, etc.

How to describe? lol It's amazing. It's similar to most bead shows in the fact you will see everything you could imagine using to make jewelry. While many bead shows also offer classes, the level of classes at Bead and Button is higher. They had well over 1000 class submissions this year. You can imagine the caliber of what they picked. Booth space isn't a given either. At most bead shows they will take pretty much anyone that applies. At Bead&Button you apply and wait to get in. People keep their spot and you will definitely see really good beadmakers from all over the country.

I love Bead&Button and strongly recommend you go if you can.

I will be there teaching again - one two-day class and another one-day class - on silver glass, of-course! Not doing the show but will be at the Meet the Teacher selling venue on Wednesday night. Can't wait to see everyone again.

I'm trying to narrow down my choices; wish I could afford them all! I'm thinking of something that involves working with metal and a torch - or metal clay, either copper or bronze. But I've been known to change my mind several times before registration

Yep.. I am having a really hard time deciding on what classes to take this year also. I keep changing my mind. I usually like to do seed bead classes since that is my other love along side lampworking.

I had such a blast last year and was so overwhelmed with all the vendors and classes and fun. last year I went with a couple of friends but this year will be the first time I am going alone. Hope I am not too lonely..LOL... Of course its not really unusual for me to just walk up to someone and introduce myself...haha.

I booked my hotel already. I am not going to stay at the Hyatt this year. I went ahead and booked at the Hilton. It seemed to me that is was closer to the classes. Maybe I am wrong there, but the price was better and its still connected to the convention center.

This will be my 10th year at B&B. I go with my best friend from college, and it's the highlight of our year.
Whoever else is staying at the Hilton, you'll find it much better than the Hyatt. I switched over there about 6 years ago and have never looked back. You'll like it!
I'm taking Jen Geldard's Master Class. Also Trey's 2 day workshop and Hayley's silver murrini class.
I can hardly wait! See you all there!

OH... I am so happy to hear that about the Hilton. I booked my room there because it seemed so much cheaper then the Hyatt. What else makes the Hilton so much better?

I am taking three classes this year. Two are in seed beads and then one is Haleys class on Silver glass. This will be my second year at Bead and Button. I had such a blast last year.

Re: the Hilton- first of all, it's a more "old style" hotel. They have updated the rooms somewhat (although I liked the old dressers- more storage for two people with tools and supplies and everything we buy, and oh yes, clothes!) The halls "wander" so everyone isn't taking the same elevator at the same time 15 minutes before class starts. There are several choices of restaurants on the ground floor, including a Starbucks (get there early- it's crowded, but the staff is good!) and room service is prompt and good. I think you'll be really happy there.

And yes, SaraSally- see you there. Miss you!

I'm going ... it will be my first show I've ever attended anywhere!! I just can't wait! I have 8 days of classes lined up - living overseas I have to try and get in as much as I possibly can in the time available! One wish I had was that most the glass classes weren't all around the same days!! It was a hard choice for sure!

I need to buy findings so hopefully there'll be a bunch to choose from!

I hope to meet lots of LE'rs there as I won't know anyone I don't think unless a couple peeps are there that I've been PM'ing with ..!! And I'm staying at the Hilton as well ... I booked my room back at the beginning of January already!! Now I'm just waiting for some better deals to come along for flights!

Just over 4 months to go! But I'm not counting ... really!!

Amanda

Amanda- What classes are you taking?
And you will find more findings than you can ever imagine! I'd like to see your face when you go on the show floor for the first time! I about passed out my first time!
And you'll meet lots of peeps and make lots of friends. I see people every year and we all really look forward to getting there and hanging out together.
Welcome.

Going for the 4th time and taking my first class - Holly Cooper's 'Patterns on Glass Beads' Saturday and Sunday.

The first year I went with my wife - who does jeweley - we really had no idea what we'd find. I had made plans for the Art Mueseum, botanical domes, Natural History Mueseum. We never got out of the show!!! - took all day Friday, Saturday, and half of Sunday to get from the left side to the right side. The next year I bought some glass and a HH torch, and last year a mega minor and an oxycon. It's a fun show and it has changed my life.

We stay at the Ramada - a block and a half away - but that leaves more money for glass and beads.

Hey Wally-
Holly is awesome! Took a class from her in Wichita last year and loved it. Her stringer work is to die for! Have fun.
