A New Endeavor…

Back on March 18, I opened HidingPlace Beadery at 1000 Markets, a fairly new selling venue for handmade quality items. Not long after that I was contacted by Dini of Beadazzled of Oregon, and she inquired about my interest in starting a new beadweaver’s group on 1000 Markets. Dini’s enthusiasm is infectious! So within just a few days she and Rachele of Rachele’s Originals had organized a group of 8 people who have spent the last week, writing up our proposal, choosing our name and tag line, establishing our vision of the market we wanted to establish and deciding on a final banner graphic. I present the result:

Today, the proposal will be submitted for consideration by the 1000 Markets jury!! So, we’re hoping for the best, and in the meantime, I am thanking the Lord for getting acquainted with some TERRIFIC ladies! Stay tuned for the outcome for “THE BEADWEAVING EMPORIUM”!

A huge thanks to Dini and Rachele! God bless you!
