Mary Ann Weber's Profile
I have been sewing and knitting since I was a little girl. I "graduated" into beading and bead embroidery. I love the feel and texture of fiber, beads and fabric. My work is almost totally improvisational. I will somtimes start with a pattern and then go with where it takes me. Or a particualr fabric, or bead may be the stimulus. My work has been juried into recognized art shows.
My facination with beaded knitting started with the discovery of a family heirloom beaded purse. I found patterns and started in. I love the small amulets, but found that knitting the larger purses and bags, took a huge amout of time. So I played with larger beads, and needles and made my own patterns. These are easier and faster to knit. I have published the patterns and have kits to sell.
I also love to teach, so do that as well.
