The Heart of Texas Bead RetreatThree Nights in Paris ©2017 by Cynthia Rutledge
Three Nights in Paris

This new Texas venue should be awesome! I will be joined by Nancy Cain and Jean Power, so what more could I ask for in an event? I am sure this event will sell out quickly as it is very price friendly, so check out the details and sign up today!

I am really looking forward to seeing Savannah. I have never been there, so this event is really exciting! I will be joined by Shelley Nybakke and Diane Dennis, so we will have a great time. This event is open for registration, so take advantage of this opportunity to visit a lovely city, take in some historic sites and bead with friends. See you there!

France with Cynthia Rutledge: Ooh la la!
Coming soon a special design...

Paris & Provence: Lurs, Aix-en-Provence, Verdon Gorge, Forcalquier, Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, Avignon
If you've thought about how great it would be to travel to France and wondered how you could combine it with your passion for beading, this is the trip for you! We'll spend three nights in Paris--one of the most exciting cities in the world--and then travel by train to the South of France where we'll spend 11 nights. During that time we'll have a workshop with Cynthia Rutledge on a project inspired by our destination. During our stay in the Provence region you’ll get to know the food, wine, lifestyle, and culture of this mellow, ancient, and breathtakingly beautiful natural environment. Ooh la la!
