The ISGB Gathering Bead Swap

The ISGB (International Society of Glass Beadmakers) has a convention each year, called The Gathering.  I love the name - a gathering is the blob of glass you put on the mandrel before you spin your beads!  I have never had the chance to attend - I'm not sure if I could, given I feel intimidated as heck by all the glass talent out there!  But I've always wanted to.  This year, I stumbled upon the chance to do a bead swap with other members who aren't attending the gathering as well!  Sign me up! Here are the beads I received!

 Patsy Monk
 Janet Peterson
 Cindi Brunell
 Bertie Beattie
 Tracey Alfaro
 Rayren Hockett
 Lynn Hahn
 Natasha Lenaghan
 Chris Haussler
 Debi Dufrene


And if you know me, you know I forgot to take a photo of the beads I sent, but they were a selection of beads like these!

This was fun! I'm glad I got to do the exchange, hope I remember to sign up next year!
