In case you missed it! Kumihimo Japanese Braiding

Our January 10th meeting was so much fun! Rhonda Crosman, one of our board members, presented a talk and demonstration of Kumihimo Japanese braiding. She provided discs and yarn  for all attendees to make their own friendship bracelets to take home.  If you missed the meeting, you can click here to download the instructions for the braiding.

Please check out Rhonda’s website for more on her work and teaching.  http://rhonda.crosman.org/

And congratulations to John Baker-Batsel for being our mini-art show winner for his wonderful photograph!
