Beading

Beading – Gail DeLuca

William Holland – June 11-17, 2017

Gail’s 2017 SFMS classes will be all about playing with flat Peyote Stitch. This class will be appropriate for both beginners and experienced stitchers. Class kits include bead kits and instructions for 4 projects using variations of flat peyote stitch: Color Block Bracelet, Hombre Ombre Amulet Bag, Zig Zag Bracelet, Freeform bracelet. Students will work at their own pace, and depending on time and experience can expect to complete at least two of the four provided projects, and make progress on all four. Experienced stitchers may choose to work on more advanced projects, and are welcome to bring their own beads and projects in addition to those provided in the class kits. I am happy to assist with whatever projects you bring. Class kits also include needles, thread (Fireline), work surface and other notions. I will also be bringing a variety of additional project kits available for purchase.

Class Kit Fee

$150. Includes beads, findings, instructions, and notions for four complete projects as pictured. Several color options will be available.

What to Bring

Lighting – bring your own task light, and extension cord.

Vision – reading glasses, magnifiers, Optivisor etc.

Your class kit will have plenty of beads and supplies to keep you stitching all week. You are welcome to bring your own bead stash, projects, etc. if you wish to work on your own projects. Class kit fee will still apply.
