Designer Bead Embroidery

o

Diva Phyllis and Diva Georgene have inspired me to add a little embellishment to some of my garments. Machine embroidery is my day job but I’m a bit lost when it comes to other embellishments like beading. I am a huge Kenneth King fan so it was only natural for me to order his brand-new beading book. Like everything Kenneth does, it is meticulous, thorough and loaded with wonderful beading patterns that seem a little less intimidating now. Best of all, this means I can build a bead stash once again! I used to do some bead weaving but purged my stash years ago – no time like the present to check out the local bead shops again.

This book is available for $16.47 from Amazon.com.

  1. This book is on my Christmas list – if I don’t get it, watch out Amazon on Dec. 26th.

  2. Thanks for bringing that book to my attention. I have been interested in trying a little beading myself and that looks like a must have book.

  3. Arghhhh! there goes more perfectly good money that could be used for something useful like food! Although having taken his embellishment course, he is a phenomenal instructor and breaks things down into very easily digested bits!

  4. *Gasp!*….I don’t think I can wait till Christmas – thanks Gigi!
