I just discovered a feature on my wonderful auction management software Auctionsage which is going to save me a lot of time. Doing a dance of delight.
Because I had a driving lesson at the magic hour, I wasn't able to register on the dot of Noon, EST, and missed out on getting into Michael Barley's beadmaking class at Bead and Button this year. They don't keep a waitlist for regular classes, when I called to ask the very nice lady I talked to just chuckled, and said the first time they had done so had been a bit...stressful. I can imagine. Over 600 classes and thousands of frenzied bead lovers, I don't blame them.
I did get into other classes though. I'm going to take "Uncommon Objects in Glass Casting", and "Bezel Setting" , and Kristina Logan's "Dot Clinic".
I will be carefully saving my pennies, that's for sure. I really, really hope that classes will sell well, so that the instructors can keep on doing this.
