Mid May 2014 Classes

Greetings Everyone!

Findings will be closed Monday May 26 for memorial Day.

Kathy will be leading the Thursday afternoon group through some of their favorite patterns in Bead & Button and Beadwork. Those wishing to join in the fun are welcome and must be comfortable with seed beads and needle threading. Cost of each class varies, depending on the length of the class.

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 June 20th (6pm - 10pm)

May ~ STONE OF THE MONTH

Orange Sodalite

This particular type of Sodalite is from Brazil, however Sodalite is found all over the world. It is named after its sodium content. Sodalite was discovered in Greenland in 1806, but was not widely used as an ornamental stone until 1891 when large deposits were discovered in Ontario, Canada. Metaphysical, Sodalite is reputed to help achieve emotional balance, releasing old conditioning and programming of the past which no longer serve. Mohs hardness: 6
