  • New styles out west?

    Hey all you tradish dancers that live out west or that head west for big powwows. I need to know some of the things that are new out there. WOrkin on finishing a beaded set shortly and can't figure what I'm gonna use as fringe. I've seen 1/4 ribbion and was wondering if thats coming into style. So if you could help me out I would greatly appreciate it. Also never could figure out the crown on the roachs. Wondering if anyone knows about them and could possibly tell me how to make them.

    1/4 Ribbion works great....... I dance more of the Lakota style Northern Traditional.....w/ the round bustle.....but i fringed all of my bead set w/ white, red, orange, and yellow ribbion.... it gave my outfit good flow... and the brite white ribbion makes my bead set stand out.................... :) Toksa

      Thanks for info........

      Thanks for the info on the fringe. I think that is what I'll most likely end up doing now if someone would tell me about those crowns I would greatly appreciate it.
