Instructor: Adele Kimpell
Instructor Bio: Adele Kimpell is a Minnesota based, primarily self-taught beader, who has had a love affair with needle and thread arts since the age of 13.  Introduced to off-loom bead weaving in 1994, she spent her 8 years learning and experimenting with technique and has been designing jewelry, authoring and illustrating patterns and teaching for the last 12 years at bead shops, bead societies and guilds, and bead shows at a national level.  Adele's design philosophy is to design for the novice to intermediate bead artist but to incorporate elements that appeal to the advanced bead artist.  Adele loves to pass on her knowledge and skills and to give her students a solid foundation in technique and to help instill in them the self-confidence to design and create on their own. She derives satisfaction from seeing how each student embraces a project and makes it his'/her own.  She is known by her students for her well written instructions with full color illustrations, her patience, her knowledge and helpful hints and tips.  Adele is the founder of, and a partner in, Bead Dreamers LLC.  Adele is currently the Newsletter Editor for the Upper Midwest Bead Society and is a 2014 Starman Trendsetter.
