Happy New Year!

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and are now ready to start beading again!


Our next meeting will be Thursday January 18, 7pm. We will be meeting in the usual place, the Brewster Police Station Community Room on 631 Harwich Road (Route 124), Brewster.

Marti Williams will teach a technique similar to right angle weave using two needles. This is not a difficult stitch to learn so everyone should go home with a beautiful bracelet.

Materials needed for January's Project:

This is for a 7" bracelet before the clasp is added,

* Fireline 4 or 6 lb
* 64 6mm bicone crystal beads An AB finish really adds sparkle.
* 103 3mm crystal beads in a contrasting color - You do not have to use Swarovsky crystal. Any 6mm beads and 3mm beads will work.
* A one strand clasp
* 2 Big-eye needles. Big-eye needles are highly recommended since two threads go through each needle. We will have big-eye needles for sale at the meeting for those who do not have them.
* Work mat and scissors


Put and Take Box -- Do you have extra beads or findings you're just never going to use? Starting this month, bring those unwanted lovelies with you to meetings. We will have a Put and Take Box, The idea is you PUT those unwanted extra beads into the Box and TAKE an item of approximately equal value. It's a fun way to enhance your stash and pass on your unwanted beads to someone else. ********************************************************************************

If you have a completed project from a previous meeting, please bring it for Show and Tell. ********************************************************************************
