Blackwork, beading and biscornu, oh my! Learn the the techniques of creating and finishing a 15-sided biscornu. 

Approximate finished length: depends on fabric count

Supplementary Information:

The January and February program will be devoted to the Petite Garland, an EGA Petite Project led by Susan Kaplan. You can find the instructions in the Members Only section of the EGA website. Then click on Petite Projects. This is a stash project!

Please print your own instructions. There will be a few project print outs available at the January's meetings but not enough for everyone.

The February meeting will show how to attach the stitched piece to an Altoids' box. A member will bring some in from her stash.
