Bead - It - Forward Project

"The Bead&Button staff will once again be organizing the Bead-It-Forward project! As in years past, we'll collect squares of beadwork that measure 1.5 x 1.5 in. (3.8 x 3.8 cm) and assemble them into mini quilts, shadowboxes, ornaments, and a few surprises. These items will be auctioned at the 2014 Bead&Button Show, and all proceeds will benefit breast cancer research at the Medical College of Wisconsin.

The Bead-It-Forward theme for 2014 is "Turn the tide on breast cancer," so squares should depict ocean/aquatic/beach motifs."

Here at the shop, I will offer kits that include beads, instructions, and a pattern for $5.  When you bring back the completed beaded square, I will give you a $5 gift certificate to spend however you'd like!  In other words, I'll donate the beads if you'll do the beadwork!  The kits will be available starting Thursday January 16.  

You can do as many squares as you like, but I have to have them back here in the shop NO LATER THAN 5pm  on SATURDAY FEBRUARY 15th.  THis will give me time to package and mail them in by their dealine. 

Lets see how many squares we can make for this good cause! Get your friends and family involved, too!  I'll have 4 patterns available, easy, intermediate, and advanced, so anyone can do this!!  And, if you want to do your own thing, feel free!  I have a list of the requirements here in the shop, so I can email them to you, or you can stop in and get them. 

  ~Bead It Forward Patterns below are available in kits at Soulshine Studio starting Thursday, January 16.

The new location is 26 East Market Street, right between Mint Velvet Vintage and Thali Indian Restaurant.  I'm super excited ~ it's more space, brighter lighting, and a lovely second floor for private parties and big classes.
