SEPTEMBER Stitch Clinic

September’s meeting will be FUN!  Our Stitch Clinic will give you an opportunity to spend time together learning new bead stitches. If you are:
  • a beginner beader,
  • someone who is using one or two primary stitches because they are your favorite but want to learn more, or
  • if you are an accomplished beader in many stitches and want to share your knowledge
THIS MEETING IS FOR YOU! No need to sign up.
You can also just bring a project to work on and have a bead circle. If you need help with a project that you learned from a SDBS Guest Artist, you may find that help is available!
Please bring your beading mat and light, needles, thread, etc.
We will also have instruction on making a very popular bracelet that was a hit at the recent Bead Bazaar Silent Auction. Ellen Kroll will show you how it is done:
