Cyn will lead us in a surprise pattern! She advises that you will need Thread in your choice of color, beads in 2 colors that are ok with the thread color you chose. I am using white thread and red and blue beads…yes this is in honor of Independence day aka July 4. You can use your country’s colors or pick 3 colors you like and go well together It will not be a flag. The pattern will work well using shuttle OR needle.
For more information, contact NSAN members for posts OR come to class!
