Guest Column in Beadwork -- Bead Embroidery Primer

Wow, just got my advance copy of the latest Beadwork magazine. Thanks, Jean Cox, for letting me guest-host your "Stitch Pro" column this (April/May 2015) issue!

Lookie! Bead Embroidery Primer...
The two-page spread covers a couple of basic stitches, starting and ending threads, and some tips about materials. And some nice illustrations. And... a humongous photo!

I do believe this is the largest photo ever published of my beadwork. I love it! You can just about see every bead. This piece is called Road Trip and I talk about it a lot in my recent webinar for Interweave called Bead Embroidery: Techniques & Inspiration. (HINT: Sometimes the download goes on sale for $14.99...)
