Bead It Like You Mean It: The Basics of Beading on Fabric
Full Day Workshop

Friday, February 28, 9 am - 4 pm

Easily add beads of all shapes and sizes to your quilts and wearable art after you are done quilting. Here’s the prize: no knots or mess on the back! Learn to embellish in a way that adds to the overall design instead of looking like an afterthought. Students will create a small fabric flower collage on batting and use it to learn different beading techniques such as solid line bead embroidery, attaching bugle beads, and creating a beaded bezel used to attach a cabochon to the fabric’s surface. All levels.

Materials List: Fabric Scissors. Small shallow bowl or container to keep beads in (“Altoid” type tins work well). Buy $25 Kit from Teacher (payable to instructor) or Bring to Class: Seed Beads (sizes 11, 15, & 6) or beads that your eyes can see and any needle that will fit through their holes! Bugle beads. Cabochon, button (no shank) or flat bead, about 20mm diameter. Long appliqué needle size 11. Thin cotton or cotton blend batting, 8” x 10”. Fusible Web, 8” x 10” or ¼ yard paper backed, regular weight Wonder Under or your favorite brand. Two 8” x 8” squares of solid fabric, one for the flower and one for the background (hand dyed or plain shows off the beads best). Nymo or Sylamide beading thread to match your beads or background fabric. There is no need to reserve a kit, I will bring plenty. Teacher will also have piecemeal supplies such as needles and cabochons for students to purchase in class (Cabochons for $5, Foxglove Cottage Straw Needles for $3.50, Beading Thread for $2). Optional: Any interesting beads or embellishments you might have. Thimble and needle threader. Thread snips. Rubber finger from an office supply store to help pull your needle.
