——————————————————————————————ABS Meeting: Oct 25, 2021 – Project: Beaded Name Tag Base

We’re meeting in person!  Because Austin went to Stage 4, we will be meeting in person! 
For the meeting, You will need to be Masked and Fully Vaccinated.  For the safety of ALL !
At Austin Bead Gallery.  From 6-6:30pm, we will also have Zoom up for Socializing and Chatting

Our Instructor: ABS Member Laura Zeiner
Our October meeting project will be Beaded Name Tags. So New Members won’t be stumped when trying to remember somebody’s name.  (like I was….for 6 months!)
Learn to create your own personalized name tag with decorative fringe.
We’ll do it in 2 parts. The first meeting (Oct 25), we will graph the beaded letters we need and bead the body of our tags. And the second meeting, we will embellish them like crazy!
Create a pin or necklace, depending on your taste.
Even though we won’t be embellishing them at this meeting, when choosing your colors for the base, you might want to keep in mind what the whole name tag will look like when we’re finished.
