Have you thought of all of those wonderful gifts you will be giving your loved ones?


This Saturday is our BEGINNING BEADING class, starting at 10:30am.  Why not bring a friend and have a day of fun, you'll go home with a finished necklace AND a pair of earrings!
More details in the calender at the bottom of the blog, just give us a call at 603 352-7192 to register.
We hope to see you Saturday!

Upcoming Classses

We are celebrating the HERRINGBONE (N'Debele) stitch for the month of September! All of our classes will be using variations of the herringbone stitch, and of course we will offer our beginning class, as we do each month (we'll even talk about herringbone stitch in this class).  Please come join us and learn the stitch that adds two beads at a time instead of one! Check the calender at the bottom of the blog for dates and information on August and Sept. classes.  Just give us a call at 603-352-7192 to register or ask questions.

So come on over, we can't wait to see what our winner comes up with this month!
