"old-timers" have thinner (yet stronger), round cord for their beads. This
prompted me to action!
On our course, we have an evening when we traditionally exchange gifts. I
made new cords for each staff member with a higher quality leather cord, and
tied (instead of an overhand knot) a Turk's Head knot (woggle). Add your own
beads, and voila! Cool conversation piece at your next WB reunion dinner.
