Sheila will tell us where to shop for beads, how to organize them, what needles and thread to use, how to set up a space for optimal success. She’ll also show us some of her quilts and the stories of how and why she uses beading for added texture and highlights.
She will take us through how to add a beaded edge to a small quilt and how to bead to enhance a printed fabric. You can use this technique on garments and accessories as well as quilts.
