March ProgramFor our March project we will discuss the use of beads in a variety of crafts. We will learn to use a bead loom and will be designing and completing a small project. Looms, beads and other supplies will be provided. If you have them available, please bring a spool of strong sewing thread in any color (it will only show at the edges), a pair of scissors for snipping threads, and crayons, colored pencils or markers in a few basic colors for designing your project.

Minutes of the February 2012 NPSWG Meeting
Old Business: Marje Koehlert called the meeting to order. There are no changes to the treasurer’s report. We discussed the concern of our April meeting falling on Easter weekend. It was decided that if the church is available on the following weekend, April 14, we will move the meeting to that day. Barb Lodge passed the hospitality sheet as there are several upcoming blanks in the cookie schedule.
New Business: It was announced that the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival is next weekend at the Four Points Sheraton in Cranberry.
