BeadFest Philadelphia Spring 2015...

I originally wasn't going to attend the spring BeadFest show in Philadelphia.  We've been so busy lately, that the thought of leaving for a long weekend was laughable.  But... it just so happened that my "work from home" day aligned with plans a friend made to go out for the day.  The temptation of all the treasures and many friends was just too much to forego.  So, dark and early, I met up with Alison and we made our way out to the show.

It's always lovely to see the people that make up our community.  The big shows are a convergence of creative energy, bringing people from around the world to take part in this exchange of not only material things, but ideas and energy.  I'm really glad I went!  Here are some snapshots from the quick trip:

Dana Groves of Interweave/F+W and Leslie Rogalski of Sleepless Beader.

Jenny Davies-Reazor, (my brother-in-law) Greg Ogden of Green Girl Studios, and Sak and Liz Chumtong of Saki Silver.

Joan Miller of Joan Miller Porcelain.

Meredith Roddy of Beadalon, Ren Farnsworth of Designs in Glass, and Maria Richmond of Lost Marbles.

Anne Gardanne of Gardanne Beads.

Keysha Whitsel of Keysha Koy Glass, Maureen Henriques of Pumpkinhill Beads and Kris Schaible, and Michelle McCarthy of Firefly Design Studio.
