Sister City
Info on the sister city bead group: These ladies are a bunch of beaders that call themselves Beaders Anonymous. If you want to participate then make a base bracelet that fits your wrist, using whichever stitch you like to do. We are going to send these to the group and they will embellish it for you. We are going to be doing the same for them. Any bases that are completed will be collected in the October meeting and we will send them out together. Enclose a card with some information about yourself so the designer can get an idea of what you might like.
