This weekend is the Innovative Bead Expo in Clarksville, MD. (That’s Howard County.) This is a GREAT show! It is relatively small but they have something for everyone! The smaller size makes it less intimidating. I’m including the link to their webpage. You should be able to get a $1.00 off coupon so the entrance fee is only $3.00! Very affordable. Then, you can join the class at Old Sage Farm and Donna can tell you how to use your beads! Enjoy!
