September & October Program

Boot Camp Sampler Bracelet
 
Members will work on five stands of a sampler bracelet at the September meeting and 3 stands at the October meeting. The finishing
techniques will also be discussed at the October meeting. 
 
This bracelet can be completed in size 11/o or 8/o seed beads.  Size 8's
make up very quickly and really show off the various stitches.  This is a great way to use up those left over's from other projects.  Members can use a mix of 11's and 8's. Use complementary colors or work in a single color.  The choice is up to you the designer.  Bring your Boot Camp manual to use as a reference for the various stitches.  The pros will be there to assist you.  
 
 The Bracelet pictured at the right was completed by Dee Edwards.
