I stopped at Trimtex today to buy some ric rack for a quiltI am making. OMG I loved the beads! I can't wait until I have more time to spend and look at everything. My daughter and I took the jewelry making class at PCT last year at this time. I really want to take a class and will keep watching for them. Unique and beautiful beads are so hard to come by and I was impressed with the selection. Can't wait to meet you and create something beautiful! Deb
