Westbank August Project

Hello, Everyone!

It's been a hot summer so far, but our August project will make your wrist sizzle!

We will meet at Love Lutheran Church, 3730 MacArthur, Algiers from 1 to 3 p.m.

Vicki will be our instructor and here is the information:

Approx 2-3 grams each of 10-12 different seeds - use any combination of:
11/0 round seeds, 3-4 mm squares, #1 or #2 bugles, 8/0 hex, 11/0 triangles Embellishment beads: any flat beads, freshwater pearls, crystals, metal spacer beads, pressed glass beads 15/0 round seeds clasp: shank button or toggle clasp or delica beads to make a toggle clasp Nymo D thread is recommended, but whatever your thread of choice is OK #12 needle

Class cost is $12.00

Kits will be available for $10.00

As always, you are welcome to bring your own beads. Also, as always, you don't have to do the project to visit with us and can bring your own UFO to work on.

It is strongly suggested everyone get a watchmakers tin with 12 containers for this project, whether you're bringing your own supplies, or buying a kit. When working with this many different beads, it's much easier to have them in containers. Michael's carries them in the bead supply section.

Vicki will have 10 different themed kits, so there will be a nice selection. Attached is a picture showing the various samples and they are beautiful.

This class is definitely a good beginner's class; however, be prepared to not finish the bracelet in class. There will be additional step-by-step instruction guidelines available if you need more help after the class.
Come on over to join us and have a little fun!
