New Kits Coming Soon :)

Good Morning ! I am getting ready to put together some of my Peyote Flower Sqaure Kits. What colors would you be interested in? They can come in size 11's or 8's and working on kits with size 6's which is a great way to teach this stitch to kids.
You can use the squares to make earrings, put a bunch together for bracelets etc. Or use it as a pendant for a necklace the possibilities are endless.
Kit will include:
1. Seed Beads (enough for 2 squares)
2. Pattern /directions
3. Nymo size D thread
4. Needle
Let me know if you would be interested and what colors you like.
I can also teach privite or group lessons locally
Have a great day!!!
