With many thanks to Karen Hardy, here's last year's "What to bring" list:

1. Clothing
2. pajamas for pajama jam
3. bathing suit (for hotel pool/jacuzzi)
4. light jacket (it can get chilly)
5. Pills/vitamins
6. Makeup, shampoo, toiletry stuff
7. Closed toed shoes
8. spray bottle of lysol (used for spraying surfaces and fixtures in your hotel
room/condo. It sucks to catch a cold from the last guest. Learned this trick
from a world traveler friend of mine).
9. Basic first aid kit. Burn cream, band aids, something to help you sleep,
allergy meds, flu meds (in case), cough meds, headache meds, lavender oil.
10. Didy or boro glasses
11. Tools for classes (see list of classes for the tools you need)
LABEL ALL YOUR TOOLS with your name. Other items as well if you
might leave them on a table or something.
12. mask for classes using frit
13. Fanny pack or other small bag for your tools. This way it's easier to
carry them around with you.
14. Trade beads (I bring about 60) along with little baggies and business cards to enclose (or a piece of paper with your name on it)
15. Vendor gifts (2 beads usually)
16. Gift item for auction
17. Money for auction (checkbook/cash)
18. notarized letter
19. directions to event
20. address book to get info from new friends
21. notebook and pens
22. cell phone AND charger
23. camera AND CHARGER and an extra memory card if necessary
24. refillable water bottle
25. Extra suitcase for purchases (no, I am NOT kidding about this one.
Usually, I throw a zipper duffel bag in, and my clothes go in there on the
return journey, leaving my suitcase free for purchases AND the stuff I make
during the event. You'll be surprised how much room this stuff takes up).
26. Glass rod storage travel container (these are AWESOME)
Here's some links to tubes that can work:
27. Wrist rests, or creation station! Special marver if you need it. Anything to
make your work area more comfortable.
28. Hat using glass for Hat contest, great prize!
29. Hair ties and cotton clothes for hot shop.
30. Glow in the dark anythings for open torch nights!
31. Dark chocolate.

Crazy Woman 2010-05-02 6:29pm

getting closer day by day..

MACE Glass 2010-05-02 7:03pm

I'm sooo jealous. I didn't even know about this (I only started last fall).

I checked out the schedule and wow! I am amazed at the cost and the classes. This is just an increadable deal. Thank you for putting something like this on! (I saw you had a few spots left open, but sadly I won't have the funds this year - getting my studio setup up costs a few $$). But getting that Kiln in the size I want is WORTH IT!

I am saving up for next year now!

Congrats to everyone that is going! Have a blast and I can't wait to see the work that comes out of it!


deb c 2010-05-02 7:24pm

Me too, me too, me too...I am going too ;)

Wooohooo! Yep, John will have to keep Karen in line...while singing!

Mike, would love to have you come some is worth hiding the change, lol! Yes, a new kiln is an easy choice ;)

deb c 2010-05-02 7:25pm

Karen, that list is a work of art!

EXCEPT...where's the dark chocolate????

Judith Billig 2010-05-02 8:41pm

Me too!
Thanks Deb for the notification ... can't wait. I'm sure it'll be a blast :)

artsyuno 2010-05-02 8:52pm


Me too, me too, me too...I am going too ;)
LOL, Deb. I edited the list for you.

dragonart glass 2010-05-03 9:17am

HannahRachel 2010-05-03 9:37am

Thanks for accepting my classes, Deb!

lillip 2010-05-03 12:36pm

Yahoo! This will be my first- so thanks for posting Karen's "what to bring list."

rusticstudio 2010-05-03 12:48pm

Hey! Karen doesn't deserve all the credit! Several of us helped compile that list! :p
Gotta keep that girl's head from swelling too much!

Those of you who've never been before... you are going to have the time of your lives! And I am not exaggerating! One thing: DO NOT BE NERVOUS!! Everyone there is very supportive and friendly. And we were all in your shoes once. It's ALL good. Just relax and enjoy the ride.


Crazy Woman 2010-05-03 12:55pm

Waving at Patty!!! :wave:

Bead_lover 2010-05-03 1:39pm

:lol: Some people have spell-check, I have Patty, my ego-check :love:

I will second this - I started a small list, and EVERYONE here added
stuff that I left off. As they added it, I kept expanding it. Over time,
it has grown into the fabulous thing that it is!

It is a group effort of the LE hive mind for sure!

artsyuno 2010-05-03 4:29pm

Many thanks to the LE Hive Mind. :)

papimom 2010-05-03 6:53pm

My foot is tapping....... Is it September yet?
I'll be there.

Bead_lover 2010-05-03 6:56pm


Just wanted everyone to know that I have been looking at hotels/motels in Eugene and a bunch are already booked solid due to the festival that weekend. Of course most of the more expensive ones are still available. But I would recommend that everyone who will need a hotel/motel room to start looking soon...before everything is gone.


moldyglass 2010-05-04 6:25am

ME, I'm so excited....
