The Gathering of the International Society of Glass Beadmaking took place virtually again this year from June 9-12,   


Members who participated were invited to share their experiences and photos and encourage more Southern Flames members to attend next year's Gathering and other ISGB events! 


During the meeting, members shared information about what they learned, their experiences, AHA moments, etc. from the recent ISGB Gathering event.


They were invited to tell the group about:

  • The workshops they took and the cool new things they learned.

  • Their favorite speaker and how they inspired them.

  • A new bead or process they're excited to try.
