    Mayfair, 2500 N Mayfair Rd, Wauwatosa, WI 53226, USA

    Meet in the Food Court, at the top of the escalator.

    This will be a fun time of trying to make a cord netting for an interesting focal piece. Bring a knotting tweezers and a pliers if you want. Our committee members are fun and interesting and always have great stories to tell around the beading table. While we all happen to be retired, or work weekends, or are disabled, we know some people can't meet on a weekday. We welcome everyone who wants to help us, there's always plenty to do.
    Please let Cindy Brinkman know if you can come, so we have a kit for you. See attached picture.
