This is a small part of Jan's wonderful studio, and the first necklace she made with Robin in Calif.
While there we visited this amazing ribbon store, http://www.ribbonstore.com/, I was so blown away by the reams of ribbon, both new and vintage. You must check it out.
Slots are everywhere, even in the grocery. Gives new meaning to gambling away the food off the table, who's idea was this??
Another stop was the Christmas Goose quilt shop, I'm excited that they have asked me to come back in the winter of 2011 to teach a wool workshop. I'll have more info. on this later once the date is set. They have a great selection of many different fabrics with lots of great samples.
Next was a visit to the National Redrock Park, breath taking.
Now for the main reason I went, the workshop at Bead Haven [http://www.beadhaven.com/] with Robin. This shop has more wonderful beads than I have ever seen in one place. VERY dangerous! I was able to do some major damage, it's a good thing I don't live there.
