Happy September

Time sure flies - I've been busy enjoying Summer when bam - the time for the Secret Christmas Beadalong has arrived!

Launching publicly today this years project is available as a kit and as a pattern so you can choose which works best for you.
Both of them launched yesterday, to previous purchasers, and in less than 24 hours 50% of the kit stock is already sold (and there is a lot less than last year) so if you want to treat yourself to a very special kit please do dive in soon.
Read on to find out more information and also for the discount code you can use towards the pattern to receive 20% off.

I have been super busy recently getting all my projects for next year ready and also working on a new pattern and 2 new kits.
I'll be bringing you the pattern and the class info within the next couple of weeks with an extra newsletter, and then the kits will be unveiled at at a Meet & greet at BeadFX in Toronto in 3 weeks so you could be one of the first to get your hands on one then. Otherwise they will be launched on my website in October.

So until a couple of weeks time, and lots of exciting new things... best wishes and happy beading

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

Christmas 2016 Secret Beadalong

It's Christmas Beadalong time!
This years project is again an ornament but is not only completely different to previous years but this time it can be split into components to form a different ornament or be worn as a bold pendant & beaded chain!
This year I have 3 kit colour options (Golds & Reds, Silvers & Blues or Red & Green). More information can be seen here.
I have a lot fewer kits available this year than last year so if you would like to purchase one please don't delay to avoid disappointment.
These kits will begin shipping towards the end of September to ensure they are with you in time to begin in December.
This year I am also launching the project as a pattern so you can use beads from your stash, or bead it in your own unique colour choice.
You can find the pattern here

As soon as you purchase either the kit or the pattern you'll be sent (to the email address used to purchase, just let me know if you want to change that) more detailed information so you can get planning & deciding.
If at any time after you have purchased the pattern you would like to upgrade it to a kit (and I still have some in stock, swapping from a pattern to a kit has begun already and I can't guarantee how long I will be able to do this for) then just let me know and the price you paid for the pattern will be refunded.

My Favourite Delicas 10

My Favourite Delicas collections are an opportunity to expand your beading palette (and stash) and discover new colours and colour schemes.
Each set comes with a sheet detailing ideas for colour schemes and combinations and each bead tube is labelled so you can re-order your favourites.
I launched this set back in July and there are just a handful left so if you want to add tons of new colours to your stash dive in soon.
My Favourite Delicas 10 - 54 new colours!

It is always good news when new bead colours are introduced and this new set is no exception. Miyuki have added some new colours to their palette and also 'filled in some gaps' in their previous colours to bring out 54 brand new beads.

To give you a tempting peek as to what is contained there is:

  • Luminous Silk Sun Glow
  • Silk Deep Capri Blue
  • Silk Fruit Punch Pink AB
  • Transparent Sky Blue Luster
  • Matte Opaque Milk Chocolate
  • DURACOAT Opaque True Navy (and 3 other navy blues)
  • and 48 more!

The colours cover all shades of the rainbow and are bound to add impact to whatever project you use them in. Each tube will be labelled with the colour number so you can add it to your list of favourites. This pack is a limited product (only 25 will be sold) and the colour scheme won't be repeated again.

All packs contain a sheet detailing ideas for colour combinations and shipping world-wide is included in the price of £139

Classes 2016-2017

I still have lots of classes planned for 2016 and some very exciting ones planned for 2017 which I hope to be able to announce soon!
Below are some classes I'm teaching over the next couple of months and you can always see what other classes I've got planned by date here or by venue here.

Rick-Rack Class in Hitchin

If you love the look of a Rick-Rack bangle and want to learn all about making one, playing with patterns and playing with the design to bead bracelets and even a Tulip necklace then this class is perfect!

We will also look at turning rick rack into petals, leaves, rings...

This class is being taught on the 3rd September at Charisma Beads in Hitchin.

Classes at BeadFX in Canada

This September I'm teaching 3 classes at BeadFX in Toronto and you can book them here.

Beaded Arrow Heads at Stitchncraft

On 7th October I'm teaching this class which covers these sparkling, reversible beaded components which are perfect to string onto elastic as a dazzling and eye-catching bracelet or to add to chain, cord etc for a reversible necklace.
Lots of hidden beading and thread paths, along with the very small beads make these an advanced project.
You can book the class here.

Sticks & stones or Icos at Worcester Beaders

On 22nd and 23rd October I'll be in Worcester running these 2 classes and you can book them here
