The Bead People just attended a Presbyterian Women's Retreat. It didn't work out for me to go, so we decided to let them go solo. I sent books, beads, and wires and happy thoughts that all would work out. I just had a nice email from the organizer, Pat D. Here is what she wrote.
I have to tell you how successful the Bead People were at our camp this past weekend!! Just phenomenal! There were women making them all weekend long, and many kept appearing on the zipper pulls of the jackets and vests we were wearing. I would believe there were probably 100 bead people made—maybe more.
The women loved the story in the book. They found it quite addictive making the people. There were requests for us to do it again. I will be back in touch with you—but wanted to give you this quick update.
