The first days beading instructions have done out and the Beadalong officially begins tomorrow!!!
Of course, although the 'beading-along-together' part will be starting, the Beadalongs never end as they are just like regular beading patterns and you can dive in and begin them whenever you want to never worry about missing them or being behind (most people don't bead them during the beading-along time).
You'll also notice a change over the coming weeks & months as these are renamed as, although they take place during the run-up to Christmas day, they've never been Christmas or religious-themed and I don't want to give the impression that they're not for everyone.
Each year the piece is something that can be hung as an ornament (I usually have mine hanging from my tree at Christmas and then keyrings in doors at home the rest of the year) and also worn (which I all year round do with my ones from 2017 and 2018 and will for sure be doing with this years).
But there is a lot of work to be done behind the scenes with all website pages, links, file names, beadalong emails etc (literally over 500 things) to be renamed or rewritten and so it will be a few months before it is all done... but it is in progress.
Now to just decide between calling them 'Winter' or 'December' beadalongs... I prefer Winter but I already get too many complaints from beaders in the Southern Hemisphere about the 'Summer' beadalongs...
