Dear friends, I have some exciting news! I have been invited to be a guest speaker and beading teacher at the San Diego Bead Society & you are invited to attend! Monthly meeting takes place at Mingei International Museum on April 16, 2016 at 10am. Please view the Events page for more details:)
Beading class takes place Sunday, April 17, 2016 in Del Mar. You will make a beaded poodle pin, which can also be worn as a pendant! You will create a layered felt foundation, do bead embroidery using Delicas, as well as add texture by using the backstitch and stop stitch techniques. This class is suitable for beginning beaders and can be made in the color of your choice. Please see the San Diego Bead Society website for more details, class registration, and directions. Hope to see you there! 🙂
