Rolanda Patterson is teaching a brand new beautiful bracelet called
CRAWfabet at our January meeting.
She will have kits available for a discounted price of $35. You can

Supply List for 7.5” Bracelet
Size 11 TOHO Takumi Large Hole Seed Beads Main Color: 17 grams
Accent Color: 8.5 grams 1 4-hole slide bar clasp
The colors of the Takumi are limited so two colors of an 11° may be
used. Rolanda prefers the Takumi large hole seed beads but an 11°
with a nice hole is adequate. As Rolanda
says, “the Takumi beads ARE a dream with this though.”

Welcome to 2017!!
It’s that time of year to consider new resolutions. We want to
change various aspects of our lives that we feel don’t reflect us
and come up with new ideas for living. Scroll through these for
inspiration on how to improve your life this year.
• Start a new beading project with a new stitch. • Plan a trip to a
bead retreat. • Create an evening beading ritual to help you wind
at the end of the day. • Meditate about beads. • Declutter your
home and your beading space. • Stop procrastinating about that
difficult beading project
once and for all. • Take control of your finances so you can spend
money on beads. • Drink more champagne while you bead (it’s good
your health). • Start a beading passon project. You never know
will lead! • Do a beading stitch you’ve never done before. • Take
care of yourself. You can never underestimate “me
time” and “bead time.” • Buy more beads.
I have so much to be grateful for. I want to thank Joanie Whitehead
for guiding me gently as I stumbed through my first year as
President. Her staying on the Board has been so helpful to
Janice Lynn has been outstanding over the past years. She has
missed so much beading time as she patiently did her duties as
Treasurer. I’ve never heard her complain. She is such a hard worker
and we couldn’t function as an organization without her.
I also appreciate each of our board members. I know they all work
hard giving up personal time to attend board meetings and also the
unseen work: calling and emailing to make sure everything goes
smoothly in both our meetings and our other activities.
I also want to thank all of our members. I love the Dallas Bead
Society and appreciate the trust you place in me to guide our
activities through this next year. Please let me know how I can
better serve you.
We look forward to seeing everyone at our meeting on January
Gina Witlock, President
Our Christmas Party was a success!
