It's Knot As Hard As You Think!

Hello and happy "Thankful Month"! I don't know about you, but I love this time of year. I love the scents that permeate my house, filling every nook and cranny with comfy, spicy smells. I love the fresh, crisp feel of the air and crunchy, crackly sounds of leaves beneath my feet as I go on long walks. I love the rich, earthen hues that start to settle in all around me. I just love the fall! The other reason I love this season is that it gives us pause to stop and be thankful for all of the many blessings we have in our lives. Often we can become so busy that we forget to just stop and say thank you. Each year my family does something different to celebrate. We always have the big Thanksgiving dinner, of course, but we also like to do something to commemorate and regain focus on what this season is all about. What do you and your family do?

Speaking of doing, I have a lovely project to share with you in this issue, and it's "knot" as hard as you might think! In this month's Education Corner I will be explaining how to use the Beadalon® Knot-a-Bead tabletop knotter tool. I had never even attempted to make a necklace that had a knot between each bead because it was too intimidating to consider. You will see, as I have learned, that this tool takes the difficulty level down a few notches and makes knotting between beads as easy as 1-2-3. Here, I will show you how!
