Techniques Night - April 2009

Last Wednesday night was Techniques Night at the April meeting of the Toronto Bead Society. The theme of this session was U.F.O.'s, as in "Unfinished Objects" - bead projects that you may have started but never finished for whatever reason. Maybe you lost interest, forgot how to do a stitch, or don't know how to finish it off. Various members volunteered to teach/share their knowledge and there were several tables of people learning different things.
Roxanne (see photo, above left) taught wire crochet to a very eager crowd.

I sat at a table where the topic was seed bead techniques and we discussed questions we had and problems we were having and Ronit, the table leader, gave us the benefit of her wisdom and vast experience in this area.

Stephanie (The Dixon Chick) sat at Sonya's table and learned how to use the curling gizmo (see photo, right), with very cool results. For more details, see her blog posting of April 10th.

Thanks to everyone who helped out, we newbies really appreciate the fact that you are willing and eager to share what you have learned with us.
