Intro to Beaded Kumihimo by Julia Hecht
I've been easing my way back to work and it's been a really nice experience. We had a great wire class last week: The Herringbone Weave Bracelet. Tomorrow I am teaching it again from 1-4 PM. We've still got some places left. So, if you are thinking about wire - this would be a great class - Participants will learn wrapped loops, weaving with narrow gauge wire, and creating your own clasp. A great deal for $25. Give us a call to find out more, or sign up.

Learn the ancient art of Japanese braiding with the portable, modern Kumihimo disc. Weave a fiber necklace in a distinct spiral pattern, tie off and finish with findings - great for hanging beadwork. With the basic technique mastered in session one, we will use session 2 to weave with beads on every strand and create a fully beaded bracelet. Kumihimo will open a world of possibilities for creating beaded ropes in a variety of patterns. Geared to Beginners.

We are happy to announce that we will be selling precious metal seed beads in smaller more affordable tubes. We are dividing the larger tubes by thirds and they will be sold for 1/3 the price. The 30 g tubes will still be available for purchase, but will not be hanging, so please ask at the counter. This is a process...we are starting with the size 11's. We would be happy to get a tube ready for you if it isn't out yet. Just let us know.
