2018 Bead Embroidery Workshop

                 Bead Embroidery Workshop 
        Saturday February 17th and/or Sunday February  18th       
                         1pm to 5pm Both days

Learn techniques and tricks from three – yes! three! – talented masters of bead embroidery.

 Liz Harrison, Linda Latimer, and Mary Lynne Westervelt will share their expertise .   They will teach you basic stitching, gluing, bezelling, edging, and other techniques. You may attend one or both sessions. The class price for one session is $25.00 and for both sessions is $40.00. You will receive full color handouts and one 8½” X 11” piece of undyed Lacy’s Stiff Stuff™. In order to match your cabochon for a one-of-a-kind creation, you will need to bring your own materials.  See supply list below.

                    If you are only attending one session, please specify which day.
