    Foray into a new medium

    I have been sewing and quilting for years and am always looking for a new twist. While attending this years Sewing Expo I saw some quilts with beautiful beading on them and just HAD to learn the technique. I snapped this up in the store and started beading a purse the next day. Long time beaders won't need it, but it has TONS of information for people new to the idea of doing more than just stringing beads together.

    All Around Great Instructional Book

    Whether you're a beginner or experienced at beading/embellishment, this is a great reference. It has excellent photos and instructions, which provide either basic guidance, good inspiration or helpful new techniques.

    I'm glad I found this book and am enjoying using it.
