Here is what’s Bloomin This Week!
Happy October! Hope you had a great summer. Fall is beautiful and then it is fun to see the seasons change. Fall/winter is the perfect time to finish projects and start new ones!
Plus, if you need an excuse to knit, then our ongoing prayer shawl promotion offers the perfect excuse and you will change someone’s life in another country!
October Is Visit Your Local Bead Shop Month!
Kalmbach Jewelry-Making Magazines and Kalmbach Books have joined together to create a program aimed at supporting the growth of our independent beading retailers.
We will have new classes this month (look in the calendar below), new items and promotions.
Plus, October 18th is Flat Cathy Day. It’s your opportunity to share Flat Cathy’s adventures at your favorite bead shop, and reveal exciting tips you’ve learned with the beading community. Cathy Jakicic is the author of the new book Jewelry Projects from a Beading Insider (affiliate link).
Here’s how it works: Print out a copy of Flat Cathy (there are 2 versions on their Facebook page) and take her to your favorite bead shop on October 18th to help celebrate Visit Your Local Bead Shop Month. Snap a photo of Flat Cathy at the bead shop and send it along with a fun tip and the bead shop name to [email protected]. You’ll have a chance to win prizes!

Come and bead with us, hang out, show off your latest project and have a good time. We will be having delicious cupcakes from our new next door neighbor Cakes of Distinction.
