Owner Lori Clarida, along with Jennifer Wright, always opened bright & early and left when the last beader left – usually after midnight! AND also provided everyone with an excellent Project bag (which will also fit your iPad!).
Thanks too, for helping Jean ship her boxes to Texas.
♥ Betty Stephan
for giving us permission to distribute her Heart project instructions (from Marcia DeCoster’s Love Bead Love blog) – and allowing us to use her beautiful design as our June 2017 Heart Retreat Project.
♥ Alli Cormier, for adding to the Gift Bags
All the wonderful staff at the Hilton DFW Lakes Resort, especially: Laura Hannah and Sami Smith, the Loss Prevention crew, the Catering and Dining Room staff, and the many behind the scenes who make the Hilton DFW Lakes a wonderful place to be.
And You! All of you who answered the call to Come Bead With Us.
Thank You for deciding that this is where you wanted to spend your weekend. Without your faith, your support and your love of beading, none of this would have been possible.
♥ David Fleming, Edge Technology Consulting
for his event registration software, his patience and unending support when I need it!

I want to extend a heart-felt thank you to you for your commitment to making this event a success. It is the vision of the Heart of Texas Bead Retreat to provide an educational and fun experience for our attendees in a pleasant, comfortable environment. Your generous contribution to offset the cost of providing a delicious catered lunch for the group each day helped make that vision a reality.
As we continue to grow, please know that partnerships with our sponsors are vital to the success of this Retreat. You are truly appreciated. Thank you.
