      • Is there any way to get in touch with John Tu outside the shows?

        • Unfortunately, not really. He doesn't have a website or do mail order because of all the travel.

          SO MANY PEARLS, SO LITTLE TIME----

          • Reading back through this thread it looks like he is only at the Gem Faire shows in Hillsboro? That's about a 2 hr drive for me. Is there any way to confirm his being there ahead of time?

            Thanks, Cecilia

            • Cecilia,

              John Tu usually does Eugene, too and the next one there will be July 5-7. The following weekend the faire is in Portland at the convention center. He usually is at Tacoma also. Vendors for each show are listed on gemfaire.com, but usually only a day or two before the shows.

                  • Well. I finally got to meet John from Taiko. He's at the Gem Faire in Hillsboro OR this weekend (4/11-4/13/14) and apparently I just missed another woman from Pearl Guide who is in the Portland area.

                    John was warm, welcoming and very busy! I have a few new strands to work with and hopefully a new friend.

                    Thanks! Cecilia

                    • I'm so happy you met him. We have been friends for ten years - way longer than I have been on Pearl-Guide! Enjoy your pearls and be sure to post photos.

                        Very sorry to have missed you, Cecilia! I was at Gem Faire on Friday; so was a 3rd P-G'er! Always fun to shop with John.

                        • Indeed Patty, The way the day went on Friday I was thrilled to get there at 5PM and still have time to look around. Best laid plans and all that. One of these times it will work out.

                          • Do you know if John Tu does any shows on the east coast?

                            • SunSeeker,

                              Unfortunately, no, only on the west coast.

                              CeciliaW, yes, I know there are days like that! Of course, another time we'll meet. There's a possibility of mini-Ruckus in Portland sometime this summer; if so, we'll post it here on the forum.
