That' s a formal name yes? It's a worldwide group of glass beadmakers. We meet every year for the 'gathering' which is a conference full of glass nerds. Glass nerds is not the best description, but what we do is watch demos, see new products, new colors of glass and tools, and rub elbows with some of the top glass workers in the world.
So Wednesday morning, I'll be leaving the cabin on the lake that we're staying at, and flying to Miami Florida. Hey.... I am thinking the beach there will be a fun place to visit.
It's going to be a great time seeing some friends and taking lots of pictures, and lots of notes on new techniques.
I'll be reporting back and maybe even will get a post in from Miami. Probably not a picture though unless I can figure out mobile upload!

I'm back to visit in Houghton Lake, Michigan. It was home for 30 years and you can see in this picture I lifted from the tourist site, it's a very large lake. We arrived to 60 degree weather, which was the 'high' on Monday. That is a big contrast to the 90 degree weather we had in NC. We are seeing many friends from when we lived here and enjoying the lake views. I haven't been in the water yet!
