2007/2008 Season Past Events
The final meeting of the season was very enjoyable as members delighted in the whimsical stories that accompanied the vast and varied 'collections' that members brought forth.
In May, Connie Paul gave members wonderful instruction in how to construct their own jewellery clasps from wire.
On April 2nd, Margaret Scott from Shades of Clay (Mississauga) was our guest speaker, presenting - "An Introduction to Polymer Clay". A special thanks to Margaret for her wonderful presentation and for the great gifts. It was very much appreciated.
Margaret has provided the link to a blog that our members may find helpful: http://blog.simple-inspirations.com/
In February, Niagara Bead Society members were treated to an exclusive tour of Connie Paul's lampworking bead studio.
