Luncheon and hands-on beading with Linda Berry

Here is a description of the class:
Learn to make a lovely beaded choker or longer necklace in the quick and easy Netting technique.  Linda Berry learned this from Joyce Lukomski, a talented national teacher, and is pleased to share her knowledge with us.  Joyce has given Linda permission to use her instruction diagram and Linda adds her own perspective.  CRVC is treating all participants to the supplies.  You have a choice of the three color combinations shown (from top to bottom):

December class -- color choices       1. Midnight Blue and Jade

2. Chocolate Brown and Antique Gold

3. Midnight Blue and Amethyst

Please sign up and indicate your first and second color choices as soon as possible.  Linda will try and honor your first choice but her supplier may not be able to get your favorite color at the last minute.

Registration:  It is important to make your choices immediately so we can have the supplies you need.  The cost of the day is only $20 because we are subsidizing expenses with our funds on hand.  Celebrate the season and enjoy a wonderful day!
