Katie Hacker at the Beadalon Booth, CHA Winter 2012

February 22, 2012

Katie Hacker, Beadalon Designer and host of ‘Beads, Baubles & Jewels’ TV show, demonstrates techniques from her just-published book Live Wire Jewelry: Make Colorful Designs That Shine (North Light, 2012).  During a lull in the booth buzz, I took the opportunity to ask Katie for tips on getting published. I was gifted with “Katie Hacker’s Ten-minute Talk on How to Propose a Book,” which will appear soon in another Stabbed! blog post.

Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) Charity Wings Flash Mob

February 22, 2012

Here is Elena Lai Etcheverry, of Charity Wings, is pictured here wearing wings created by L. Grace Lauer



and the back–lovely weaving of newsprint with the feathers:




These wings are hinged and open up by a handle operated by Elena. I don’t have a photo of that, but if you go to this YouTube video of the flash mob, you can see more.

Yours truly participated in the flash mob–great fun for a great organization!
