October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! To help out make a bead quilt square, or wear a piece of jewelry that helps promate awareness in others. Here's a pattern you can use. It would make a nice amulet bag. I will be teaching a class at the local art Academy at the Bower Center on October 27th, from 10am-2pm. The class will focus on how to do peyote stitch, and each student will have a finished Breast Cancer Quilt square at the end of class. Students are encouraged to donate their square to the bead Quilt. All of the profits from the class will be donated to the Bead it Forward Bead Quilt project. More info on the project can be found at Jeanette Shanigan's web site


All of the patterns I have designed for the bead it forward bead quilt are located here: http://picasaweb.google.com/yardchicken2/BCQuilt2009HeartPatterns# Here's an extra pattern for the Bead Quilt I did yesterday.

Doing a class and teaching them to do peyote by making a BC quilt square is a cool idea. They might be more willing to donate the square if you can find a way to get a picture of their finished square. You know how we like to take what we create home to show everyone since we are so proud of learning a new skill.

Also, you are so generous to donate your fees.

You have my daughter and I here trying to figure out how we could accomplish something like this in our itty bitty town.
