Jamey Allen is a person who has been involved with beads for over thirty years. He has studied all aspects of bead work from origin to utilization. Jamey has written a number of publications on many forms of bead work. With all this said, we are please to have him come by and share a lecture on "GREAT BEADS" for our June meeting. Not only will he share with us many aspects of beads, but his lecture will also include a slide show. Hold on though don't leave those beads at home. We will be beginning our second continuous project , beading lizards and snakes. We will learn how to do a number of stiches around the body. For those of you who have not had a chance to get your lizard or snake, we will have some for sale at the next meeting. You will need; Size D thread, size 12 needle, scissors,and seed beads in three or four colors size 11 and 14. Sherry suggests making the colors of the 11 & 14 match.
