Meetings are usually held the second Sunday of the month, from noon to 3 PM at Granite State Independence Living (GSIL), which is located at 21 Chenell Drive
Concord, NH 03301

March 8, 2020

Lynn Dodson teaching Knotting on a knotting machine; Peggy Schaffer will demonstrate knotting by hand. Lynn says, "I use #6 Griffin silk thread which comes with a built-in needle but you can use any needle and thread you like- just make sure the beads fit the thread. If you want a shorter necklace you will need two clamshells to hold your lobster claw and jump ring. If you want a longer necklace that will go over your head you won’t need a clasp - just a bead with a large enough hole to go over the knot or a crimp cover big enough to cover the knot. If the holes in the beads are large enough that a as knot will go thru then you can use a seed bead on either side of your larger beads." If anyone has questions, just email me

The Savers Drive is due at the March meeting.
