Bead it Like You Mean it
Be inspired and get creative as fun-loving artist Lyric Kinard guides you through the basics of beaded embellishment on cloth.
She will show you how to make straight or curved solid lines, how to split or join them, or simply add one bead at a time. You will learn how to cage a beautiful cabochon, or get silly and have fun with stacks, the perfect finish for your favorite funky flowers.
Are you a quilter? Foil the quilt police and learn to bead from the top of a finished quilt with no knots or mess on the back!
