Announcing a New Neighborhood Group
First Meeting Thursday, January 5, 2017, 1:00-3:00
Please RSVP by Monday, January 2, 2017
Dear ASG Sewing Friends,
We are delighted to announce the beginning of another Neighborhood Group: Beader’s Workshop. If you have been wanting to learn off-loom beading techniques to create embellishments for your garments or design wearable objects, Beader’s Workshop is an opportunity you cannot miss. If you are a beginner, we would love to help you discover the glorious art of beadweaving, if you are an expert beader, we would love to have you share your expertise. To get started we will focus on putting together a beading kit, sharing resources for finding high quality materials, and learning a variety of beadweaving stitches. From there? The possibilities are endless and might include advanced flat and 3-D techniques, specific project designs, or exploring simple to complex garment embellishments. We shall see where our explorations will take us…
We hope you will join us for Beader’s Workshop. We will meet on the first Thursday of each month following Couture Toujour. We will meet from 1:00-3:00 at Marie Barrese’s home located a very short drive from Fabrique. For our first meeting, we will provide beads, needles, and Fireline, please bring the following:
Scissors (not your good one’s because we will be cutting beading thread)
Thread conditioner such as Thread Heaven, if you have it
If you have a task light with magnifying glass, you might like to bring it
If you already have your own beading kit and beads, please bring along the supplies you like to work with.
We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, January 5 at 1:00. Please don’t forget to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, January 2, 2017.
Guests are welcome to visit any ASG neighborhood group meeting for up to 2 meetings, before we ask you to join as a member. Membership is full of benefits! www.asg.org Plano, TX chapter
Have a joyous holiday season,
Marie Barrese and Penny Hanstein
