My weekly fiber art group usually meets at members' home, but since we have several links to the Brookfield Craft Center, we decided to hold our meetings on the second Friday of the month there with one member giving some sort of demonstration or tutorial.
Barbara, our Kumihimo expert, kindly offered to lead the first session. Kumihimo is a Japanese form of thread braiding. You can watch a terrific tutorial that I found on U-tube here. This is the little foam disk that is necessary.

You can also use beads and that's what Barbara is going to show us next month. I'm really looking forward to that!
Great job, Barbara! Thank you so much!
