Have you had some bead embroidery experience, or taken Lisa’s Beginning Bead Embroidery class and now want to learn even more beautiful techniques? Come to this one-day workshop with a pair of sharp scissors and your creative thinking. Students will receive a kit with beads, thread, and a sampler base, plus hand-outs. Students learn how to beautifully and securely incorporate larger beads, buttons, and cabochons into your quilts and bead embroideries. They also explore a variety of edge stitches and fringe techniques while creating a sampler to take home for future reference and inspiration.
