I am a 49 year old male who has been beading for well over 42 years and I still absolutely LOVE doing it! I teach two times a week at my house here in Sacramento CA. to a group of wonderful senior citizen women who appreciate it so much, I can't imagine ever NOT beading. I just recently sent a necklace and bracelet set to Marie Osmond. She responded with a signed photo and acknolegement that she "loves the gorgeous bracelet and necklace set, thanks so much!" Happiness is a warm beading thread and needle..........actually mine is HOT!.
