Beading : Baby Steps: Bead Embroidery, Part 1

  • Fri, October 13, 2023
  • 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

We will begin stitching the scissor case in the Baby Steps pattern using bead embroidery.

We will learn how to bead around a cabochon and the beaded backstitch. Please have your pattern completed and the cabochons glued in place a couple of days before the meeting so the glue will set (steps 1 and 2, pages 41-43 in directions. In addition to the kit supplies, you will need:

•Completed square stitch pieces (3)

•Nylon beading thread, size B or D, in light and dark shades (Fireline, Wildfire, etc. are not suitable for bead embroidery)

•Size 10 or 12 sharp or beading needle

•Usual beading supplies

For those who would like to learn bead embroidery but do not have the directions or kit, please bring a cabochon glued on a piece of beading foundation (like Lacie’s Stiff Stuff), and size 11 and 15 seed beads in desired colors.

This group meets the 2nd Friday from 10am - Noon. 

LOCATION:  This group meets hybrid. Those meeting in person will meet at MVUUF and those by videoconference will find a link on the Member Resources page.
