As a child, Allie Buchman always wanted to become a teacher. Teaching is about helping people to try something new, and accomplish something great. With her husband Nathan, Allie founded PotomacBeads and began a journey that has educated millions of people around the world in jewelry-making.
"People are naturally more creative than they think. By exploring new outlets for that creativity, they become more fulfilled and have a sense of accomplishment and pride. PotomacBeads loves helping our community unlock their creativity!"
