Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, until further notice all 2021 DVBS meetings are being conducted via Zoom
at 7 pm on the 3rd Tuesday of each month (except December and January).
We hope to see all of you in person soon. Until then, bead and be well! - DVBS Board
Do you have leftover seed beads from a variety of projects? Would you like to put them to good use and make something beautiful as well? Then we have the project for you. Sue Powell will teach peyote stitch and demonstrate a secret technique to integrate a variety of shapes and sizes of seed beads into one seamless piece.
You can use any shape of one-hole seed bead, round, square, triangle, delica, and any size seed bead, 15, 11, 8, 6 or whatever.
So, gather up all your little dribs and drabs of seed beads and
let's LOVE THOSE LEFTOVERS!
During the meeting, we will have time to learn the basic peyote stitch and be able to connect at least one additional panel to start the piece. Members will be furnished with directions to continue the piece and even to stagger the panels.
Sue is donating the tutorial to the DVBS for use by the members.
