Help us celebrate our 12th annual bead challenge. This is a wonderful way to highlight our talented customers… like you!
The bead challenge starts on Friday, Sept. 8, at 10am and ends on Friday, Oct. 13 at 6pm. Make anything you want from the kit-jewelry, sculpture, collage work, quilts, embroidery, a knitting project–anything. You must use at least one of each of the elements in the kit to qualify for the challenge. You may add as many or as much of other materials as you desire. Those turning in qualifying finished work will be included in a one-week exhibit starting October 20 with their name and name of their work prominently displayed as well as being featured on the Bead Challenge page on our web site. Qualifying artists will have their name in the hopper that will be pulled randomly to win gift certificates and other goodies. Please call the store at 319-338-1566 if you have questions about any of this information.
