    Thank you everybody very much for your kind words!! I had a lot of fun, too! It was great to see so many beautiful beads! And, Anita, That slicer was really cool! How much would each member need to chip in if we all wanted to buy one for the Guild?

    Yes, thank you Rhonda for your demo! I'm like Charlotte, my previous NATASHA attempts started and ended in the scrap pile! You made me realize this i had omitted the TWISTING step!! What a difference! Thanks!

    Great job, Rhonda. The Natasha beads technique is really fun, especially the "reveal". And your demo was lots of fun!

    Good job Rhonda! It reminded me of the fun and endless surprises you can get with the technique. I like to think of it as the lazy person's cane. Easy to do & my seams line up better with the Natasha technique than they do when I produce and try to reduce many canes. LOL!!!! I also want to thank Anita for agreeing to bring and show the LC Slicer. A new tool to dream about.

      Sorry we missed you Poorna. I remembered the cable cords this time, but put them in my bag for next time if you are still interested in the colored cable cords with screw fasten clasp.

    My only attempt at a Natasha was several years ago. It started & ended in the scrap pile. Today I made 3. Thanks Rhonda for another informative demo.
    It was good to see members who have been absent.
    The creativity on display was outstanding!
    Thank you for being present, for bringing snacks, for your participation & ideas for future demos. H A P P Y 50th L I S A
