The Delaware Valley Bead Society (DVBS) will sponsor a “Show and Tell” with Leslie Rogalski, co-owner of Sleepless Beader, on Tuesday, October 18, 2016, at 7pm in the Café of the Hunterdon County Senior Center, 4 Gauntt Place - Building #1, Flemington, NJ. The program is free and open to the public, but non-members must pre-register.
Rogalski will be bringing new goodies to this meeting! She will present two new looms; one is a new version of The Rick’s Beading Loom (a two-warp loom) and the other is the new Endless Loom (no warp threads) from Deb Moffat-Hall. Additionally, attendees will get a sneak peek at a super inspiring new bead – before it launches! There will also be other new beads (samples available), bead patterns and previews of the six styles of loomed cuff bracelets which are the projects for Rogalski’s upcoming “Love the Loom” workshop.
After graduating from the University of the Arts with a degree in illustration, Rogalski journeyed down several creative paths before landing in the bead world. The former editor in chief of Step by Step Beads and BeadingDaily.com, Leslie's projects and articles have been published in leading magazines and books including the Lark 500 Beaded Jewelry Showcase. Her Doodlebeads(C) teaching method of drawing-before-your-eyes has resonated with leaders learning to advance their skills. She and her sister Deb Mudrick reinvented Rogalski’s alter ego and blog moniker Sleepless Beader as an LLC in 2012 in a joint venture, selling kits and tutorials online, at bead shows, and bringing workshops to bead societies and shops. She is currently the Creative Director for Helby/Beadsmith.
Rogalski’s program will be presented during the two-hour DVBS meeting. To register, e-mail your name, address and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (908) 246-1231.
