Beginning Kumihimo Saturdays

Three Beginning Kumihimo Drop-In classes have been scheduled: Saturday December 10th, Saturday December 17th, and Saturday December 31st beginning at 9:30 am. Stop by Anita's Beads and learn how to do Japanese braiding. A $25. fee includes instruction and all materials to make a 24-inch round braid from 1mm Rayon/Cotton ("rat-tail") cord.

You will receive: 1 large round braiding disc, 12 yards of Rayon/Cotton cord in the color(s) of your choice (there are 30 different colors to choose from), 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.

Once you become familiar with the basic creation of the 8-strand round braid, learn how to create a braid decorated with seed beads. We will be covering this technique in our Advanced Kumihimo Drop-In classes.

This invitation to learn basic 8-cord 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.
