Even with a rainy and windy night we had a great turnout in our new location for the "Puttin on the Ritz " necklace class. Claire Hannafin and her helpers got everyone on track right away and some even finished the necklace that night. What a way to end the year with a finished necklace in less than three hours.
One of the most frustrating things that I hear from the members is that they cannot pick out the right colors. To help solve this problem, Claire Hannafin brought in sample sheets of the color forecast for fall-winter 2007-2008 and spring-summer 2008. She also gave us a web site where they forecast trends in color for the next year. Go to the web site and click on fashion and home, then on the left will be trends. Click on trends and you will see what the famous designers are predicting. They have very trendy graphics so you can easily visualize what they are talking about.
It has been another great year for the Bead Society. We continue to grow and meet new friends with the same interest. I personally have seen a remarkable change in our members abilities to read a pattern and learn a new stitch in a short period of time. Even the new members that have never beaded before are catching on quickly and making wonderful pieces of jewelry. Our members are always sharing ideas and from what I have observed, if someone near them is struggling they jump in and help so no one falls behind. All in all I would say it is a very nice group of women that belong to the Bead Society.
Our class schedule is almost complete for 2008 and I am sure you are going to enjoy what we have chosen. The new classes will be fun and challenging with lots of new techniques. I have attached a picture of January's class. The supply list will be out later.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with their family and friends. See you in January!
