Bead Embroidered Pin (2 sessions)

Let your imagination take flight with bead embroidery!

In this class with Pamela Kearns, you’ll learn the basics of bead embroidery while creating a pin you’ll be proud to wear. Pull beads and a cabochon from your stash and we’ll get you designing your own pin – or take inspiration from the pin shown.

This class will be held in two sessions: Tuesday, May 18 and Tuesday, May 25; 6:30 – 8:30pm both days.

Session 1: Overview of class; learning the stitches; creating a design; gluing the cabochon in place; getting you started on next steps
Sessions 2: Continuation of beading your design; finishing your pin

Pamela Kearns

Although a seed beader at heart, Pam has been branching out into new techniques and combining the best of all worlds into her creations. She had her first project published in the May/June 2013 issue of Beadwork. Pam taught at the 2014, 2015 and 2016 Bead and Button Shows in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. A problem solver, Pam thoroughly enjoys teaching and inspiring students to think beyond basic techniques encouraging students to stamp their own vision on projects. To ensure that all students can accomplish the techniques, Pam (also a 'southpaw) includes 'Lefty-Alerts' within her class instructions.
