      STITCH OF THE MONTH
      Learn a new bracelet stitch each month!
      Instructor: Kathleen Lynam

      Meets one Sat morning each month, usually the first Saturday.

      The Stitch of the Month curriculum is designed to teach 12 major
      bead-weaving stitches/techniques in a comparative context. This is
      perhaps one of the best ways to learn bead weaving. You get a
      clearer understanding of what each stitch is, how to manage and
      control it, and what your project and design options are, when you
      learn them comparatively, rather than in isolation from each other.

      Each class is devoted to explaining a little of the history of the
      stitch and the how-to basics of doing the stitch. Students then
      practice with variations on the stitch, such as
      increasing/decreasing, flat vs. tubular vs. circular, and the like.

      Students create a bracelet each month.

      Students may join the class at any point in the 12-month cycle. Each class is really in-and-of-itself. You may do all of the classes, or only some of them, as you desire. If you miss a class, it will be repeated in the next cycle.

      BEAD STUDY GROUP

      Meets the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month, 1:00pm-3:00pm No fees.

      You may join the group at anytime. The purposes of the group are manifold, including to explore new methods of beading, to experiment with variations on traditional techniques, and to study culture-specific beading techniques.

      Wed, 9/9
      The group will be judging and selecting semi-finalists for the
      All Dolled Up: Beaded Art Doll Competition

      Wed, 9/16
      Dimensional Beadwork (9/2)
      Costume Jewelry As Bead Weaving Designs (9/16)

      DISCUSSION NOTES POSTED ON THESE WEBSITE LOCATIONS:
      http://blog.landofodds.com Go to CLASS NOTES, then BEAD STUDY LINK
      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/beadstudy



      Beginning, Wed, 9/16, we'll be beginning a new topic:
      Rethinking Costume Jewelry from the 1920's thru 1950's
      as Bead Weaving Designs

      One prominent jewelry artist back then was Miriam Haskell. Diane Fitzgerald has a workshop based on Haskell's designs. You might check out Diane's website for ideas.

      Another artist of the time goes by Juliana Jewelry.


      Can we create rules/terms/concepts/strategies for translating design elements in these vintage, costume pieces, into bead weaving terms?



      There is no teaching charge for this class; however, there may be a small charge for materials.

      You may also register for the BeadStudy group under Yahoo where summaries of the discussions will be sent to group members, and you may continue the discussions on line. Summaries of all discussions and all handouts are archived here for you, as well.
      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/beadstudy

      Bead Study meets the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month from 1-3pm. Let Warren know if you are interested in joining the group. Anyone can join.
