Introduction to Japanese Bead Embroidery - Workshop

What better thing to do on a grey and miserable day than to stay indoors and play with some shiny, sparkly beads? That is exactly what we did at last Saturday’s workshop, An Introduction to Japanese Bead Embroidery by Carol-Anne Conway.

We worked on a Dragonfly scissor case that is designed to use a selection of stitches that form the foundation of all bead embroidery. Some of us simply wanted to learn the techniques, so worked on a doodle cloth. For those who wished to complete the embroidery at home and make it into a scissor case, by the end of the day we had learnt all the techniques we needed.
