Vintaj Classes at 2012 Bead&Button Show – Sign up Today!

We’re excited to be teaching again this year at Bead&Button! Our 2 classes sold out fast so they asked us to add an additional day. We were happy to, and hope some of you can join us. Most of you may have already heard that Jess is expecting her first baby this June, so that means she won’t be attending the show this year. Vintaj designers & educators, Mackie Mullane & Betsy Kaage will be teaching the classes and demonstrating in our booth #834 & 836. You will learn a ton of Vintaj techniques in these classes and have a blast creating!

  1. Hey! Things look different here! I would say to anyone on the fence about taking these classes to JUMP IN! I did a 2 day intensive workshop with the ladies of Vintaj and it was the best time. They are so encouraging, so thoughtful, so well prepared. That melt art is something I would do again and again. It is so awesome! You won’t be disappointed!
    Enjoy the day.

  5. Vintaj says:

    We will not be teaching in that areas, but if we ever do in the future we will post details on our Education Page. However you can visit our Where to Buy Page to see if there are any stores that carry Vintaj in the area and teach classes.
