Following bead group meetings on March 24, April 28 HAVE BEEN



We will be posting patterns on line in the next few days to keep everyone out of


The March meeting was to be Easter Themed. Alison has designed a little

Easter Bunny with an Easter Egg in a basket. The pattern is free. We will email

it to everyone on the bead group list. If anyone else would like a copy please

email me and I will forward you a copy. 



This makes a great bag or key tab, and fun to put on your Easter

cards. Perhaps even a great project to keep the children busy at this difficult

time. It is made in Brick Stitch with size 11 Delica beads and size 15 seed beads

with Swarovski Crystal embellishments. We can send a kit to you if you do not

have the beads.  It works out at £4.60 including postage, there will be enough

beads to make at least 2 Bunnies. If you would like the key tabs they are 25p

each. Email us for payment details and pattern.

Keep safe, keep well, keep busy.
