Diana will teach woven fiber necklace techniques.

Kit includes:


warp thread (3-4 ply)

fine monofilament fishing line

metallic thread

Students need to bring:

  • Perle cotton size 3 – there are 5 color areas in our pattern.  I suggest making 3 areas the same color (2 skeins of one color) plus 2 skeins of different colors. (You can find perle cotton locally at Twisted Stitches Needlepoint on Juan Tabo, as well as in Etsy shops and on Ebay. Also try JoAnn’s, Michaels, and Hobby Lobby.  I have purchased perle cotton from Herrschner’s –  They are more expensive, butthey offer a wide color selection and you can buy as many or as few skeins you want.  They also offer a printed catalogue, which is good for reference.)
  • Foam core board – 9 inches by 12 inches and ½-inch thick (Michaels or Office Depot)
  • Tapestry needles sizes #18 and #20 (Amazon)
  • Dressmaker pins sizes 17-20 (Dritz brand from Amazon)
  • Beads with fairly large holes, 6mm to 8mm
  • Table fork (to compact rows of weaving)
  • Crochet hook(s), small
  • Sewing scissors
  • Beeswax
  • Head pins to make dangles at the bottom of the necklace
  • Clear nail polish or Fray Check
  • Scotch tape
  • Small smooth-jaw pliers
  • Any magnifiers you use, and a battery-powered light if desired
