New Video Tutorials on YouTube!


Here at Allegory Gallery, we love all of our supporters. But, we know that not everyone can visit us in person to make things with us. So, we've started a new project called Video Tutorials. These are available on our YouTube Channel (please don't forget to subscribe), and there are kits in our online store (agbeads.com/jewelrykits) that correspond to the videos. We know it's not as good as being with us in person, but we hope you'll enjoy taking these steps with us! As you probably know, we're super excited about technology, and as time goes on, we can't wait to find new and exciting ways to connect with you all, near and far! Below are the first three tutorials in this series! Please let us know what you think.






Kinga Nichols is Coming to Ligonier, PA!


We're so excited to tell you that we'll have Kinga Nichols coming from Colorado to Allegory Gallery to teach in May! We've been teasing you on Facebook for some time now, but sign-ups are now live in our online store! If you're looking for some awesome bead embroidery classes, you needn't look any further than these classes with Kinga. She teaches all over the country, and we've been trying to get her for years here at Allegory Gallery. Finally, the fates made it happen and we'll be hosting her in Ligonier from May 17th-19th. We just know you'll love these (especially the St. Guinefort class that she's debuting here at Allegory Gallery), and if you do, please sign up quickly! Walk-ins, unfortunately, cannot be accepted, so the only way to reserve a seat is to sign up on our website.

Our Around the Town Series is Back!!!


Here at Allegory Gallery, we know that the rising tide raises all boats. That's been our motto from the very beginning, and that's how we try to live our lives. A few years ago, we did a series on Facebook called Around Town where we visited our favorite places, stores, and restaurants in town. We have a wonderfully supportive community not only locally, but all over the world, and we wanted to show everyone how great our little town really is! So, after some time, we've decided to bring the series back.

This week, we bring you The Paper House here in Ligonier, PA!

We hope that you enjoy this tour through their store and meeting Kelly and Bob. And, if there's something you see that you like, please feel free to contact them—they will also ship to those not local!

Thank you for watching, and please let us know what you think!






Christi Friesen is Coming Back to Ligonier, PA!


We've been teasing you on Facebook for some time now, but sign-ups are now live for Christi Friesen's Polymer Clay Classes in Ligonier, PA! Christi is a much sought-after teacher for polymer clay, and you'd be hard pressed to find anyone as fun and talented to learn from! So, without further ado, we hope you'll check out the classes below. And, remember, please sign up quickly, as these often sell out and walk-ins, unfortunately, cannot be accepted.

We should also note that Christi will have a Gallery Exhibition on Friday, April 12th that will be open to the public.
