Registration Open for Harwood Beadwork Classes

Today's the day -- registration opens now for all Fall art classes at the Harwood Art Center, downtown Albuquerque. And this gal gets to teach a couple of them:

Lucky Mojo Bead Embroidered Cuff
Wednesday evenings, September 12 and 19

Learn how to create a sturdy, heirloom-quality cuff bracelet using basic bead embroidery stitches and a few handy construction tricks. In the first class, you'll design and start embellishing your bracelet, which you'll finish for homework. In the second class, you'll learn how to shape the metal core, attach your bead embroidery, and cover the back with ultrasuede.

And then there's:

Sequin Stiches: Fabric Embroidery and Embellishments
Saturday afternoon, October 13

Learn sequin stitches that are suitable for embroidering clothing, art quilts, felt, handbags, and other fabric surfaces. Explore the secret techniques of the Magic Flower, the mysteries of the Haitian Hill, plus hidden thread, full coverage and floral tricks and tips, using flat and cupped sequins, with and without seed beads. We'll create an embellishment sampler in class. 

People really seem to like this class a lot -- the pace is relaxed, but you learn a lot of techniques that are easy to remember later. Click this link to find out more.
