Timely shipping. Package arrived in appropriate packaging. The instructions for the actual construction are a bit brief for beginners, but the explanation of color and the transitions between colors is excellent! I will purchase from this shop again.
Painting with fabric, beads, and threads
Color and texture drive my art. I paint with fabric, beads, and threads to create a distinctive visual and tactile experience for the viewer.
I love both hand and machine work. I now focus on art quilting, incorporating hand beadwork and embroidery, hand and machine appliqué, and machine piecing, free motion quilting, thread sketching, and thread painting. I often create dimensional work using beads, thread, and any other material that seems to fit the piece. I also have started painting on and dyeing fabric, using it for the backgrounds of my art or for appliqué.
I have beaded for over 20 years and have taught nationally at conferences in the past. I currently teach a beading correspondence class for the Embroiderer's Guild of America Since I do not travel to teach beading any more, I decided to sell my beading kits on Etsy. I also have some fiber art and an art quilt on the site now. As I create more fiber art and art quilts to sell, I will add them too.
I have received positive feedback for the high quality of my teaching and of my written instructions. No matter what your level of beading experience, I invite you to check out one of my beading kits. I am confident that you will find it rewarding.
