If you have mis-placed your copy or if you were not present at the June meeting, a copy is being posted here for your convenience.  Please review and be ready to discuss, revise/amend, and or accept these changes prior to the July meeting.  A vote will be taken at the July meeting.

To Russia…With No Love!

This is an editorial comment by the moderator of this website and the comments are purely my own! 

I have just deleted 327 comments.  95% are written in Russian and have no relevance to this group, its activities, or members.   In fact, I don’t believe we have a single member that speaks Russian or has any interest in your pills, porn, or pure nonsense. 

This is a moderated site and your comments will never be responded to nor will they ever be published.  So, I suggest that you cease to waste your time and mine with your nonsense.

We left this site open for the benefit of people in our area who are interested in beads and beading.   If you continue to post your pills, porn, and pure nonsense,  we will need to change our policies.

In The Weeks Before the Workshop

  • Write any needed instructions and/or visual aids. 
  • Test your instructions.  Make sure that they are logical and complete.
