Our October 16th meeting - Beaded Snowflake -- was attended by thirty people. The project was challenging, but people were very motivated and many were close to completion by the end of the evening. Thank you everyone who taught and made it happen!

If you want to know more about the floor wax used to stiffen the final project, Make magazine has a brief article about Future Floor Wax and its properties.

The November 20th class will be Netted Beads. These beads can be strung later with a combination of other beads to make a necklace, bracelet or even a pair of earrings.

For the netted bead, you will need the following supplies:

  • Large, round 12mm beads (After learning the technique you can experiment with different sizes … but for the class, use 12mm beads)
  • 5 size 6/0 seed beads, for each 12mm bead
  • 3 colors of size 11/0 seed beads, a small amount of each color, (preferably Japanese Matsunos)
  • 2 beading needles
  • Nymo D, Power Pro fishing line or Silamide beading thread
  • Paper clips, quilting pins and ear nuts, or twist ties (something to put the 12mm bead on while you do the netting and to hold your work in place until you use the bead for a later project).
