Yuma Pins 2007

Yuma, Arizon is host to one of the most wonderful events of each year. Craftsmen and artists gather to this town next to the California border to share and meet others from the Southwest and elsewhere in the U.S. The Yuma Symposium is not to be missed. Nearly three days of fun and learning. Thursday night at Lute's Casino is the site of the PIN SWAP where participants may choose to swap pins that they have made with others who have brought pins to swap.

These pins shown above were made for the Symposium in 2008. I made approximately 60 of the sipmpler ones and nearly a dozen of the ones with beads.
