Findings Newsletter – Mid June 2014

Greetings Everyone!

Findings will be closed Friday July 4th and Saturday July 5th.

We will open Sunday July 6th from noon to 4.

Be sure to check out our clearance corner when you come in. It is added to on a regular basis. Our "Orphan Bead" selection changes daily.

For all project oriented beaders, there is a group that meets on Thursday afternoons from 1~3. Group members agree on the projects they want to learn and our very experienced beader, Kathy leads them through the projects. Some upcoming projects include bead embroidery, and herringbone. Members can attend by the project, or sign up for the series for discounted class fees. Beaders with moderate seed bead experience are welcome.

Here are alternate directions to Findings during the road construction on Jackson. Jackson Rd is open in both directions, but is down to one lane each way. For those coming in on 94 you may want to use the Zeeb Rd exit and for those coming in on M14, exit Miller/Maple. Take Maple to Miller. Turn right on Miller to Wagner (4-way stop sign). Turn left on Wagner to Jackson. Turn right on Jackson. This should avoid most of the construction congestion. You can always call us for an update.

Bead-a-thon is Friday July 18th (6pm - 10pm)
