Hearts for Haiti Beadathon

Eclectica and the Bead Studio are proud to have been part of the Hearts for Haiti Beadathon, held on Saturday, January 30th.

We donated beads and stringing supplies to the Bartolotta Restaurant Group's charity division, called Care-a-lotta. Volunteers put together bracelets, which will be sold at Bartolotta restaurants, with proceeds going toward Haiti relief.

The event was covered by WISN. View the news segment by clicking here.
