Beads on the Vine
Beading Retreat in California's Wine Country"
Laura McCabe, Melanie
Potter and Kim Stathis will be joining me at the Niner Wine Estates.
Combining the calming effects of the spectacular views of the
rolling hills, covered with vineyards, this event is a place
to reflect and relax. No wonder Beads on the Vine has such a
wonderful reputation. This event fills up quickly so make your
plans and contact Melanie as soon as possible. You won't be sorry!
Mark and I love this event. Great restaurants, shopping and site
seeing may take away some of your evening beading time, but San
Luis Obispo is really lovely. Please take a look at their web
site for further details.

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

the food, wine, lifestyle, and culture of this mellow, ancient,
and breathtakingly beautiful natural environment. Ooh la la!
