It's gonna be a BLAST!
Even JORDAN can't wait to come! He is still proud of his little octopi made at the class last year!
Well I guess that's a starfish!
It will SOON be time for the SECOND ANNUAL B'sue Boutiques Workshop Retreat at Das Dutch Haus Inn in Columbiana, Ohio!
Get on the dibs list by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org for a long weekend of fun you will NEVER forget!
We have a variety of projects on tap: First, Friday night meet and greet with treats and goodies galore and LOTS of B'sue gifties!
Katie will be teaching storybook beads which include some sculpturing techniques, whale tails which made awesome beads AND pendants, and an articulated Chinese Dragon. Katie is also an instructor/designer for the Polyform Company, makers of Sculpey and Premo. They will also kindly be providing all the clay we need for our worshop. We appreciate that so much!
Cindy will be demonstrating and teaching the faux turquoise technique from Tory Hughes, with her express permission!
On Sunday we'll have a two hour project class with Marcia Tuzzolino and Irene Hoffman of the B'sue Boutiques Design Team:
The rest of the day will be spent with B'sue......I'll be teaching RESPONSIBLE REPURPOSING, which is how to examine vintage jewelry for value instead of tear down value....and discover another great income stream for your business!
Each who can will bring a bag, box, or baggie! of old jewelry so that we can examine it and see if among us we have any hidden treasures....then, how to find their value and sell them. We will also talk about what you might have that would be great for you to use to make something else, and how you might do that.
Sunday night is OPEN HOUSE at the B'sue Boutiques Shop in East Palestine, Ohio!
I'll have lots of goodies and beverages and some cool deals on special buys brought in for the event. ;-)
Monday morning BREAKFAST MEETING to discuss our the premise of the Build a Line Challenge and what works for you in selling your handmade pieces.
Then, any who would like to come along can come back to the B'sue shop and be the studio audience for two videos we'll be making, first with Marcia and Irene, and another with Katie Oskin, who we regularly feature on our B'sue Boutiques You Tube Channel

Please email me at email@example.com to get on the dibs list for this event. That's no obligation to come, just gives you dibs at seeing the contract when it comes out next week, getting your ticket paid, and making your arrangments to come. It will be placed on a special private Facebook page so you will be able to network with others who are coming or trying to make arrangements, even find a room mate to split hotel costs or find a travel buddy!
