http://www.pugetsoundbeadfestival.com/ . Both the kits and the directions are just about done.
I have a copious amount of lovely borosilicate lampwork beads made by the equally as lovely, Allison Byrd of Vortex Glassworks http://www.vortexglassworks.com/ which are just wating to be dropped into the kits and then, they'll be finished. I must admit I've been procrastinating in putting them in the kits, not only because I am the queen of procrastination but because I like to look at them all! Each one is so unique and beautious I'm quite temped to roll around in them. Don't worry. I will refrain.

http://www.pugetsoundbeadfestival.com/store/manufacturers.php?manufacturerid=39 . I absolutely love teaching at this show. The host hotel, which is the Hotel Murano http://www.hotelmuranotacoma.com/ is a work of art in and of itself. What a treat it is to stay there. The loby is full of paintings and sculptures and makes you feel like you are in a gallery rather than a hotel lobby. Tacoma is fantastic city with wonderful galleries and is a mecca for glass art. How could anyone not love glass art? Within walking distance from the Hotel Murano is the Chihuly Glass Museum http://www.museumofglass.org/. If you haven't been, you really should visit it.
Have I concinced you yet??!!
