Hello Again!

This is a bonus newsletter to bring you news about National Beading Week (which starts on Saturday) and a new bead pack I have just launched.

Earlier this month I launched 3 new bead packs (see below for more info) and all of them are flying off the shelves. As always these won't be repeated so do snap them up if you want to add more colour to your beading palette.


So until next month, and lots of exciting new things... best wishes and happy beading













p.s. between newsletters you can always see what I'm up to on my Instagram or Facebook page
 

National Beading Week

National Beading Week begins this Saturday (as does my beadalong, see below for more info) with lots of events all over the UK so do check out the website for more info.

As part of the week's events I'll be taking over the Beadworkers Guild's Facebook page on Wednesday 3rd August between 7-8pm (BST).

I'll be sharing desginer tips & tricks and answering questions so do join in!

 
As part of National Beading Week the jewellery designer Penny Akester is running some classes & events in London which you can see and book onto here.

I'm planning on attending the two UFO beading evenings so if you're in, or near, London do come along and bead with us!

Lots of hidden beading and thread paths, along with the very small beads make these an advanced project.
