Hello, Hope you are all enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend.

Well I thought I'd give you all a bit of Background about how the UK Beaders site came to be. I started it up in December 2004 but the ball (or should that be bead) really got rolling in April 2005, which is when I also started the MSN group.

When the site started out it had just 1 small page of UK suppliers, 1 of international suppliers and 1 for ebay sellers. It had other resources and a calender (which was sadly short lived as it was very hard to keep up to date).

Over the months the site developed to the point where we need 2 pages to list all the UK suppliers.

I introduced a top 10 tutorials page, but haven't had as many recommendations for this page as I expected.

As there are so many fantastic lampworkers selling their beads I have set up a page for them - which I must work on filling up this weekend!

The UK Shops map has been a fantastic success and has so far only been running for just over a week (wow I thought it was longer)!

The msn group is also growing weekly, we already have over 100 members with lots of great discussions going on.

Anyway that's enough background for now. But I'll keep you up to date with all the great things I have in the pipeline.
