Saturday, September 7th

Full Day

9:00 am to 4:00 pm


Class description


You will work knotless netting on a jewelry/spinner gourd and some basic macrame techniques to make a unique beaded necklace with adjustable closure.

Your instructor will provide a pre-finished jewelry gourd, 2/3/4 ply waxed linen, size 8/0 or 6/0 beads, size 18/22 tapestry needle and everything you need to complete the project.

This class is suitable for all levels of weavers.  Whether you are able to completely finish in the class depends upon how complicated you choose to make your necklace. 

What you are required to bring


​​Small sharp scissors

Optional: You can bring your own pre-finished spinner/jewelry gourd (in a color of your choice), 3ply or 4ply waxed linen, size 8/0 or 6/0 beads, big-eye bead needle, heat tool, needle threader, stitch picker (mini latch-hook).


Note: Bringing your own supplies is not required for you to learn and do the techniques in this course, but if you're like me, you may want more options to add your own flavor to your project.

If you have any questions about what to bring, feel free to contact Jeannie at

About the Instructor


I've been a member of Calabash Club & California Gourd Society for almost 10 years. During that time, I've learned several gourd art techniques, but I have an affinity and enjoy getting creative with Knotless Netting! A technique that I am very grateful to have learned from Kennie Winter!
