Bead Healthy Hands

Most people who work and play with their hands have encountered some pain or problems. Join me Saturday, Nov 1st, with our guest speaker Anne Einsohn; a occupational therapist for 35 years & certified hand therapist of 16 years, for a fun and informational gathering to keep your hands bead happy. She will review basic structure of the hand, common problems frequently experienced by beaders, and ways you can keep your hands comfortable, limber, and strong. Anne will try to address any hand-related questions or concerns you may have. I hope we can share techniques and tools for using our hands more easily.
Space is limited, contact Colleen to sign up today!!
Turn you speakers up and enjoy the show .... our hands are truly amazing!!!
