Sunday 10 am - 5 pm

OK Beaders---this is for you.
Need anything? This is the place.

Just take BART to 12th St. Oakland.

Anyone interested?

    I had a great time at the show: so much to see, including what everyone was wearing! Wonderful to "meet-up" to share the fun.

    Fabulous stuff!! It's like a museum where you pick the stuff up (and buy it). Great photo opportunities. Nice people too. I stayed from 12:45 till 6pm, excepting lunch time. Worth it!
    Got stringing wires and great assortment of Beads. Too bad General Bead was not there this year.

    As luck would have it, the other thing I was going to today, got cancelled and I can make this after all. Will be there after I get some dim sum in the neighborhood, around 2pm. Wearing teal leather jacket and black knit pants. Hope to find some of you.

    Hello. I can be there at 12:45 today and wait by the entrance for a while. I will have black backpack, blue tennis shoes and some colorful clothes (and of course beadwork : ) ). Are we going to meet up here?? Some of you have not posted pictures so we have no idea who you are.

    I get there as close to 10 as I can, and I'll need to leave around 1:30 or so. Where are we meeting? It's a big place!

    I see we are meeting at 12:30p, should we assume that is inside, after paying, but near the entrance?

    I think we should email our cell phone numbers to each other. It is a big place and we are not all arriving at the same time. I don' t know haw to designate a spot since i don't know the layout of this place.
