Pre-painted box and pre-made crushed shell pincushion, along with all the threads, beads, buttons, fabrics and felt, with everything needed to make a cute accessory. Kit cost: $10. Students need to bring a battery operated light, scissors for paper and felt and tweezers would be helpful, but not required. See ASG July newsletter for photo.
Color Wheel Thread Box
A flat peyote beaded color wheel thread box designed and taught by Carol Wallin done in the round to fit the top of a small container. It holds a spool of beading thread, either Nymo or One-G. Kit includes everything you need to bead this container. You will need to bring your usual beading supplies and a battery operated light. See ASG June newsletter for photo.
Complimentary Card Making Class

The “Not So Fine Print”: There will be 15 kits of each project available. All registrations received by July 6th will be treated as equal. If more than 15 people sign up for a class then it will go to lottery. We don’t anticipate this, but you never know! These classes are available to ASG members.
