Advanced Kumihimo Sundays

Two Advanced Kumihimo Drop-In classes have been scheduled: Sunday December 11th and Sunday December 18th beginning at 9:30 am. Stop by Anita's Beads and learn how to do Japanese braiding with beads. A $25. fee includes instruction and all materials to make a kumihimo braided bracelet using S-Lon cord decorated with size 8/0 Japanese seed beads.

You will receive: 1 mini kumihimo braiding disc, 1 spool of S-Lon cord in the color of your choice (there are 50 different colors to choose from), one 22 gram tube of Miyuki size 8/0 seed beads, a set of 8 bobbins, findings (barrel endings, jump rings and a toggle clasp), and a tube of glue to attach the endings to your completed braid.

You should be familiar with the basic creation of the 8-strand round braid before learning how to create a braid decorated with seed beads. Beginners should attend our Beginning Kumihimo Drop-In class to start.

This invitation to learn beaded braiding is also extended to those who have recently purchased kumihimo materials at Anita's Beads. You are welcome to join us. Contact Anita at 603-522-6529 for more information.
