Lush Beads April 2010 Newsletter

* First Saturdays Open Studios this weekend from 12-5PM
* Chronicle appearance!
* REMINDER - Ugly Necklace Contest II!
* May Day events at Lush Beads and Western Avenue Studios


First Saturdays is upon us again! Join us this Saturday, April 3rd,
from noon to 5PM. It would be a great outing for you and the family,
especially if you have out-of-town visitors for Easter or Passover.
The weather forecast looks great, so please join us.


In some -very- exciting news, the Western Avenue Studios will be
featured in an upcoming episode of Chronicle. While I was not
interviewed, some footage was shot in my studio so you may see your
favorite bead store on Chronicle! The show will air "in a few weeks".
When I have an air date, I will let you know! Chronicle is shown
on WCVB channel 5.

Today's Lowell Sun features an article regarding the filming:

And here are some behind-the-scenes photos taken by some of our
resident photographers:

2 pics of me in it.


Reminder - The submission deadline for the Ugly Necklace Contest II is
in just under a month, on April 28th. I hope you are all working hard
on your entries. Should the Chronicle piece air before May open
studios, we will have a HUGE crowd to view and vote on these pieces!

Submission deadline: Wednesday April 28, 2010
Judging by artists & the public: Saturday May 1, 2010
Winners announced: Saturday May 1, 2010 at 5PM

And now we are six. :-)

On Saturday, May 1st, Lush Beads will have its annual anniversary sale
and celebration. We will have our famous "pick a chip" sale, giving
you anywhere from a 10-50% discount on your purchase. There will be
cake and refreshments at 1PM. We will also have a guessing contest,
and the winner will receive beads! And of course, there is the Ugly
Necklace contest voting happening just outside our door.

May 1st will also be the Spring Art Thing, where 30+ artists at
Western Ave celebrate Moms, Dads, and Grads! Collect hole punches
from participating studios to enter to win a gift certificate. The
more hole punches you get, the larger the gift certificate you can
enter to win!

Please spend your May Day with us at Western Ave!
