January Program

Out of the Box Spiral Rope





Start the the New Year off by changing things up.  Jump out of that box.  Do a spiral rope but don't use the same old size beads.   Go through your stash and find those funky beads you just didn't know how to use.  Remember the core beads will need a larger hole to accommodate the number of pass throughs required by the spiral rope stitch. Experiment with the sizes & shapes of the beads you select. Be adventuresome!  Experiment and have fun!

The members of the Programs Committee, Mary Lynne, Pat, Joan, Carol, & Susie will be helping you with the Spiral Rope/Chain pattern.  This chain is simple and versatile. One you will go back to time and again.  Bring your Boot Camp booklet if you have one.  The pattern is in it.  Fusion Beads has generously allowed us to use their pattern. Members will need to print & bring their own copy.
