In Praise of Rio Grande

In my last post, regarding Stuller, by no means did I mean to slam
Rio Grande. Rio has been a great company and source for many of the
products I use. The people are always helpful and friendly and I
have used their technical department many times. Every company I
use provides different material or I would only use one. By Swest
leaving the market, I have lost my source for what they used to
provide that was unique to them. I am sure in time Stuller will
also work out the bugs that develop from dealing with Swest

So, if Andrea Hill is reading this, yes I would love to show you the
bead I am looking for because I can’t find it anywhere.( even at
Rio!!) Please contact me off list if you think you can help. With
sincere praise and apologies.
