President’s Corner

The carrier bead meeting in June was a great success.  Karen Long showed us how to cover carrier beads with even count peyote stitch and gave us several tips.  Everyone left with multiple graphs.  There were many pretty patterns made.  (please see photos on our Facebook page for some examples-click on the “f” below.)  Our next meeting, which is July 23, will be a beaded bead taught by Mary Stribling.  Come out and show your support for Mary.  The bead is very versatile; it can stand alone or you can make several for a bracelet or necklace.  Adding a dangle would make pretty earrings!

If you would be interested in bringing back the president’s challenge, please let us know.  I think it would be fun to see what everybody comes up with.  In the interim, I would challenge you to do a project in Russian spiral.  We will do this for July and August.  We will bring the pieces to the August 27 meeting, then we will have a challenge for September, October, and November that will be a bit harder.  Let’s all get involved and bring some interest back to our society.  Thank you for participating!

   ( Materials, tools, and supplies to bring to a meeting in order to complete that evening’s project will be posted under NEXT ABS MEETING )
