The Tube Necklace Class

Tube Necklace

The Tube Necklace Class – (All skill levels)

Saturday, February 24, 2018 10-1p.m.

I must admit, sometimes there is a project that just sings to me and brings me much joy to make, and this pattern from Rae Burns is one of those special pieces.  In this class, you will learn how to create this beauty of a necklace with mere thread and needle and some great czech beads.

Length of necklace makes for easy wearing as it will fit over your head with no clasp if desired.  Many variations available once you learn this technique.  This project will need to be completed on your own.  Please bring your beading needle and fireline with you to class or you may purchase that before class begins.

Class Fee $35
Approximate Materials Fee $40

Beginner Kumihimo Bracelet Class

Beginner Kumihimo Bracelet Class (Beginner)

Saturday, March 3, 2018 10:30a.m. – 1:00p.m.

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 this class because there is homework for you to do before the class.  Allow approximately 2-3 hours for this class. #kumihimo #kumi

Class Fee $25
Approximate Materials Fee $35 and up
