Well the bead fair season has drawn to a close and plans/bookings are being made for 2017.  I am hoping to attend more events this coming year as we shall be using them in order to have little mini holidays in our new caravan – woo hoo!  I have earmarked five shows between April and June which I hope to be attending with some new designs and kits, as well as full kits this time.  I am in the process of designing a Wedding Collection which will be available from April 2017.

And more really BIG news is a new side to The Jacobeadery.  This is still very much in the planning stages so I won’t divulge much more except to say that I hope to launch at the Haydock Beads UpNorth bead fair 23rd April.

So I’m busy cutting, sewing and embroidering – haven’t got time for Christmas.  Just as well I’ve got last year’s table settings to use.
