Beads 2Topic: Tucson Debrief with Show & Tell
When:
Wednesday March 18, 2015 at 7:30 pm
Where:
CGA Classroom, Lower Concourse, 55 Queen Street East, Toronto
Speaker:
Duncan Parker & Karen Fox

Early each year, Tucson, Arizona draws crowds of gem lovers, rock collectors, cutters, beaders and would-be paleontologists to an overwhelming assortment of shows scattered through convention centres, tents, motels and parking lots across the city.

It verges upon the impossible to visit all the venues, but Karen and Duncan have sampled a few and brought back a variety of specimens for show and tell, included materials for the CGA teaching collection. Add a few more acquisitions from other shows, and we should all have some fun pulling out the equipment to take a better look.

Members, were YOU in Tucson as well? If so, mark your calendar now, and plan to bring along your booty and share stories with new students and friends.
