VA Project Mar 1 by Pat Harvey
Loose Bead Society volunteers Karen Weinberg, Shirley Fishman, Suzanne Wegner, Lorene Dalsant, Deb Dunn and Debra Karius gave a hands-on class at the Veterans Craft Center on March 1. We showed the veterans how to make a paracord bracelet using a fixture. Twenty-one vets signed up for the class! Fortunately, our volunteers brought a few extra fixtures and we could accommodate about 15 veterans.
Everyone had a blast! All the veterans went home with a bracelet--one student made 3 bracelets. They really appreciated our class and asked us to come back again and demonstrate more stitches.
After everyone left, we even helped Marissa Straub, the VA Craft Coordinator, who made a red/white bracelet in honor of the Wisconsin Badgers.
