When I accompanied Tulip Co to their first exhibit at TNNA a couple years ago, I fell in love with Columbus, Ohio. This morning finds me in the Columbus airport, waiting to return home from a fabulous weekend of workshops at 1 Stop Bead Shop . This store is spacious and bright; has a generously sized classroom; 3 tables inviting customers to come sit and bead in the showroom and; an energetic, knowledgeable and gracious staff.
I taught 5 workshops starting with the Felted Bangle with Beaded Bead on Thursday. BTW...if you'll be at the Bead & Button Show next month, there are a couple open seats for this workshop there! Here is a photo of some of their felted canes and beaded beads in-the-making to be finished later. Darlene did finish hers at home that evening, and wore it the next day. Hidden inside her beaded bead is a magnetic closure.
