When dreaming about this website, I pictured a place for beading enthusiasts to gather, to participate and to share their knowledge. I hope you all take part in shaping this magazine – I want it to truly be a group effort. Your input is welcome here. I’d love to have you nominate a bead maker or submit tips or projects (don’t worry about your writing skills - my staff stands ready to transform your basic instructions into publishable text.). Beyond your participation in the regularly scheduled monthly features, I’d like to see you guide the shape of things to come. What would you like to see? Want to edit a column, write a story or post a question for the staff? This is your place to shine or to bask in the glow. Everyone here at The Beading Times is anxious to create a homey place for you – just let us know what it takes by emailing me.
Wishing you happy Beading Times,
Sandra J. Paluzzi
