Many of us got to know each other by going to Open Torch at Blue Fire Beads in New Lenox, Il. We all start looking forward to OT generally on the way home from the one that just happened. LOL BFB has classes in lampworking as well as PMC, chainmaille and seedbeading. We also get our inspiration from Tammy at TLD Designs in Westmont. Tammy is a fiber artist extraordannaire IMHO! I think I spent most of my first felting class there saying, “OMG this is sooooo coooooool.” TLD offers a variety of classes as well. Felting, PMC, lampworking, bead crochet…these are just a sampling of the classes offered. We definitely get some good inspiration in the Chicagoland area between these two places!
We will have lots of pictures of beautiful work (I hope) and be able to use this blog to help us grow as artists. We’d love to have you along with us for the journey so bookmark us and come back often.
