P.S. on February Project

Vicki has a P.S. (or an OOOPS) whichever you want to call it:

Hi Y'all,
I forgot to mention, if anyone has a heat gun, please bring that too, it will move along faster if we have more than my one heat gun.
Also, if you have a heat gun, bring a kitchen timer, or anything like a stopwatch- ink takes 30 seconds to heat set and 30 seconds is a lot longer than it seems if you're not timing it

Westbank Project for February 26, 2011

Good Morning, Beaders!

Our January project was the Russian Spiral stitch taught by Vicki. Everyone was excited about her finished necklace and it was decided to do the February and March projects with the stamped and beaded pendant. If you would like to see pictures of the various techniques Vicki will be using for this classs, visit the Yahoo group site at:

Our February meeting will be on the 26th to make the dominoes at Love Lutheran Church, 3730 MacArthur, Algiers, beginning at 1 p.m.

Vicki said, “I have a zillion other stamps,” and instead of bringing all of them to the meeting, she will pick out a bunch that are suited to the project. If you have any rubber stamps that might be suitable, feel free to bring them. She'll supply inks and other stuff we'll need. So... that means there is no material list for us to gather!

The March 26th project will be a beaded bezel around the dominoes. There will be more details about this next month.

If you plan on coming, it would appreciated if you let her know so there will be enough dominoes for everyone to make at least two. Please e-mail either me or Vicki at:, to let her know if you plan to attend.

Hope to see y’all then.
