From small beginnings, wonderful things grow. National Beading Week is now International, and lots of designers are joining in to bring you free designs to bead. The event started with the Beadworkers Guild in the UK, as a time to celebrate everything we love about this wonderful craft. It’s all about community, getting together to bead, visiting your local bead store to shop or take a class, supporting a designer who’s work you like by buying a pattern or kit. Invite a friend to bead group, or go all out and host your own beading party. However you choose to celebrate find out more at www.nationalbeadingweek.co.uk
I’ll be at the StitchnCraft Garden party on August 4th for some make and take Flora fun.
Meanwhile, here are just a couple of ways you can use Flora to make a bracelet and earrings.
