As a member of GBUK, I'm glad to promote the following event. Unfortunately I can't attend as I'm at a wedding the following week and can't travel to both, but if you can make it you'll see a wonderful assortment of lampwork. Tables are also free to GBUK members, which is great for getting your toes wet with selling at Bead Fairs if you've not done it before.
Glass Beadmakers UK is holding a Bead Fair of handmade glass lampwork beads for sale open to the public from 1pm - 5pm on Saturday September 19th 2009 at Highgate House, Creaton, Northampton. NN6 8NN
The 2009 Annual General Meeting of Glass Beadmakers UK will also be held on the same day.

Daisy has been invited to a birthday party, and I thought her friend Ilona might like a bracelet. Different to being inundated with Barbie dolls as Daisy was at her party. Ilona's favourite colour is pink
