New Preciosa Candy and Pip Bead Projects and a Personal Appeal from Mike John

A special project and message from the John Family

We are heading into a long weekend in Canada and will be closed on Monday for Thanksgiving. It is always a time to reflect and we know that this year Thanksgiving will be very different for many families.
We continue to be grateful to our customers who supported us through the early days of the pandemic. We are a fully functioning warehouse but continue to keep
the showroom closed.
In the midst of all the Covid 19 closures, we responded to an appeal from the Contemporary Geometric Beadwork organization and a group of warehouse employees went in to pack up the single largest donation of beads our company has ever provided. If you missed learning about this donation, we would be honored if you would take the time to learn more about it here.
The other major initiative we have been working on is one that hits very close to home. Mike and Daniel John have been raising funds for a close friend who needs a miracle. Tricia has a type of cancer that can't be treated through normal health care channels and in order to be a part of experimental treatments, she must find the financial resources to do so. Our marketing team and other employees are assisting Mike John with a major raffle fundraiser that is seeking to raise $40,000 for Tricia. We are more that 3/4 of the way there.
If you know the John family, you know that they do not ever ask for anything for themselves. But in this case, they could use some help to sell the last tickets for this amazing raffle. The prizes include everything from a grand prize trip to Barbados to Toronto Maple Leaf hockey tickets to a live edge table. All prizes are here.
Tickets are $25 each or 5 for $100.
If you are a friend of Mike John he'll take your call himself to sell you a ticket.
If you would like to call someone in the office for a ticket please ask for Devi ,who is helping Mike with all the tickets at (416) 757-3287 ext 229 .
