August 27, 2009

I've fielded some calls and e-mails about plans for the weekly lanyarding workshop now that school has started back up (and I hope you all had a great first week back).

Here is the plan for this week:

I have between 125 and 150 lanyards from the Pennsylvania workshop and a local workshop that are beaded, but not finished, and three large orders to fill. Therefore, this week, August 28, I am having a finishing workshop. If you have a crimping tool and know how to use it, come on over--after school or after work.

Here is the plan for next week:

Lanyarding has spread significantly since Erin started our group last spring. Everyone who is interested in helping with planning is invited to come over on September 4 for a planning meeting. Again come over after school or work or as soon as you can. If you don't like to plan, but like to bead, you can come, too.

Here's the plan for the rest of September and Beyond:

Even though we are a little up-in-the-air about how often to continue our regular lanyard workshop (right now, I'm thinking of odd numbered Fridays, so in September that means the 11th and the 25th), I am currently scheduling workshops at your place on your schedule. So, if you have a youth group, scout troop, soccer team, margarita drinking club, or service organization who would like to make lanyards, give me an email (, and I'll coordinate schedules with you. Remember, September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month.

Like I mentioned, I have a generous stock of lanyards so if you would like to carry some to your school or workplace to show off and stimulate interest, let me know.


  1. wish i could join y'all vickie. sounds like a great way to spend an afternoon.

  2. sign me up if there's an empty spot in that margarita drinking club! I hope to make it down for one of the beading parties...I'll keep you posted. Thanks for the sweet comments...I think of you guys often!
