A Month of Changes!
As September comes, we all look forward to the starting school term and the promise of cooler weather! To prepare for that, we have some awesome, limited time offers on beads to help you stock up. Plus, some of the most unique and durable backpacks you can find! 
This month, we also focus on some changes to the usual Touchstone flow, specifically regarding our class schedule. Be sure to read everything below for more information! 
We hope to see you in-store this month, but if you can't make it, be sure to visit us online on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and our website

Trunk Show & Sales
We got a surprise Trunk Show last month and it's not over yet! Touchstone is hosting a limited time Trunk Show full of stone beads and freshwater pearls with prices you won't believe! Save on lava beads, opal, amethyst, labradorite, citrine, howlite, new jade and much more! 
The savings don't stop there! Last time we told you all about $1 firepolish beads and labradorite. Well, we bought even more lab! Stop by and choose from labradorite pieces as low as $4  and plenty of $1 firepolish to go around. 
This month we focused on displaying our current stock the best that we can, but of course that didn't stop us from getting in some new pieces! 

We got a large shipment of amazing petrified wood bowls. Unfortunately, all of them did not survive in transit, but what remains is still stunning. 
We've mentioned before that Kevin has been enjoying our new rock equipment! Well, he got really busy last month and took some of the pieces you see above and, with the help of a few folks, made them into the pieces below. From finished wrapped pendants, to cabochons, you can now buy products that are 100% made at Touchstone! 

We also got some fantastic rock polishers that polish the faces of stone for slick slices and geodes! 

Stop by and check it out! We love to answer questions. You might even catch Kevin polishing his next cabochon. 
Monthly Classes 
Normally, this is the part that many of you look forward to. Unfortunately, Wanda, who teaches a lot of our monthly classes moved on to a new step in her business journey and is no longer with Touchstone. The change in staff has made us unable to host any beading classes for the month of September. While that is unfortunate, we will be back eventually after making some changes to our operations.
In the mean time, you can check out our YouTube channel, which has some vintage instruction and our beading kits that have written instruction. 
To be the first to find out when we add classes, be on the look out for our next newsletter and check out our weekly events on Facebook. Due to this month's circumstances, any changes in schedule will very likely be updated on Facebook first. Subscribe to our events page to be notified as soon as we add an event. 
One Last Thing! 
Thank you so much for joining us once again! We're still looking for customer submissions! If you have a finished piece you'd like us to share, don't hesitate to submit them by replying to this email or sending them to us on Facebook or Instagram. Next edition: an update on classes for October and new items! If you haven't already, please subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on social media. We've got all sorts of things cooking on Facebook and Instagram three times a week. Links are below.
