Beginning Bead Weaving Class

Learn how to do traditional peyote stitch bead weaving with Melissa.

This will be a 4 hour intensive class for novices. It will cover the basics of
the stitch and will get you started on your first bead piece.  You will learn
about the types of beads available and get seasoned advice on which will
work best for your own project. You'll learn a lot and have a lot of fun!

I will have various colors of thread, needles, thread conditioner, appropriate scissors, and other basic supplies for the group to use.  I will have dozens of colors of beads to choose from if you do not  have your own to bring with you.

I will provide some simple patterns appropriate for beginners for you
to choose from, or you may bring a peyote stitch pattern of your own creation. 

If you plan to bring your own pattern and/or your own beads, please
let me know so we can make sure your materials will be compatible
with mine.
