Our November 21st project will be a peyote bracelet taught by Jean and a copy of it is attached. The meeting will be held on the Westbank from 1-3 p.m. at Love Lutheran Church, 3730 MacArthur Blvd., New Orleans (Algiers), LA.

The following is a material list:

Size 11 seed beads
Size 8 seed beads
Size 6 seed beads
Beading thread or Fireline
Size 12 needle

I used round beads for this project but you can substitute these for any other type beads, such as Delicas, hex, etc., as long as the entire bracelet is done with the same shape beads.

The cost of the class is $12.00. Kits will only be available if ordered in advance and no later than November 18. The cost will be $10.00.

Please let me know if you plan on attending so I will know how many copies of the pattern to make. Also, if you have any questions or need additional information, don't hesitate to contact me by e-mail at

Upcoming Christmas Party News!

We will have a "Bring a Dish" Christmas party on December 19th from 1-3 p.m. at Love Lutheran Church. Everyone is encouraged to "bring a gift/get a gift" exchange -- it should be a bead related item or something you beaded.

We have a lot of things to discuss at our party. One of the topics is a bead retreat which will include 3-4 vendors for next summer. Please try to attend and bring any ideas and suggestions you may have for the retreat and for future bead projects.

We have lots of room so if you would like to bring a friend, please do so.

I'm looking forward seeing y'all soon!
