The Bead and Button Show

I haven't been to the Bead & Button show for several years. I remember the first year I went and how inspired I was when I got home. This year was no different. The beadwork on display was humbling. My favorite part of the show is the Bead Dreams Competition. This year I watched the progress of the Lone Beader's 1943 Chevy Fire Truck. What a thrill to see this displayed at the show with a red ribbon. Congratulations Diane! Sherry Serafini "Million Dollar Baby" Be still my heart! This piece took my breath away. Watch for "The Art of Bead Embroidery" Techniques, Designs, & Inspiration by Heidi Kummli and Sherry Serafini to be released September 2007 by Kalmbach. Beki from Out at Whim has some great pictures on her blog. We had one day at the show and my sister had an agenda. She made a list of vendors and items she wanted to find at the show. With limited time this cut down on the time spent looking for things. We went to the booths on the list and found the Treauses we sought. After 5,000 miles on the road in the last two months. I am glad to be back home. Watch for the next post with the names of the vendors we saw and the things I bought.

Bev - it was great to have the chance to see you again. It wasn't long enough, but just enough to make a moose drool!!
