Holiday Secret Bead-A-Long (Open to all skill levels)

What a fun bead-a-long year this have been.  I’m so glad that so many of you from all over the country have participated in the previous bead-a-longs and in the Kumi challenge. This Holiday Secret Bead-A-Long will be the final one for 2017.  Check out some of the details (more than I usually share) and then order your kit here:

  1.  This will be a two-fer (2 projects in one kit).
  2.  Two color ways will be offered to you to select from.  “Winter” (blue and white) and “Holiday” (red and green).  You can select which color way you would like for each part of your kit.
  3. One project is a bracelet and one is an ornament.
  4. You will need to supply the glass ornament to make shipping easier.  Michael’s carries the ornaments in stock now.
  5. The project will be available the beginning of November.
  6. Size 11 beading needle and 6lb. Fireline will be needed for these projects.
  7. Suggested for beader’s that feel comfortable working with seed beads and two hole beads.
