All five kumi classes and their info have been added to the website. In addition to these classes, there will be a meet and greet reception on Friday afternoon before the classes start and possibly a dinner night out with the gang (all welcome), and I’m sure Sonia will have lots of kumi secrets to share with us. #kumihimo #kumi

Beginner Kumihimo Bracelet Class (Beginner) Learn the basics before guest teacher Sonia Corbin-Davis arrives on October 14, 2016

I know there are a few of you out there still that haven’t tried Kumihimo yet. This is so much fun and very portable which makes it perfect for doing in front of the tv or on a road trip to visit relatives (as long as you aren’t the one driving – LOL).
Once you learn the ins and outs of this technique you will be hooked. In this class you will learn how to braid with just cords and with beads. You must pick up your beads, cord, and bobbins before thisclass because there is homework for you to do before the class. Allow approximately 2-3 hours for this class. #kumihimo #kumi
