Urban Stitch Studio post...revisited with pics this time
Several 3-4 hour workshops were offered in both beadwork and feltmaking. And because a couple of us were staying right there at the Urban Stitch Studio "B&B;)", boundaries were blurred about when class was actually over. Here is a picture of, I think Beth's, Fireflies necklace and Twilight in Savannah. Marlene's very first beadweaving? Herself a feltmaking teacher, beadwork was new to her and we teased her that after Friday evening's class, she'd qualify as an intermediate beader for Sunday's classes.
(This coming Sunday, the 20th, I'll be in Nanuet, NY teaching the felted bangles-to-bead at Beads Mosaic. Hope you can join me there.)
One of the felting projects was a felt rope and felt flower than can be worn in one piece as a lariat. Let's see, is this Christine's yellow beauty? Pat made an additional short rope that terminated in leaves and attached it to her flower. This gives her the option to tie the flower to the lariat, or not.
Kelley, the owner of Sparkle Spot Bead Shop is also the force behind dyed Fireline. She gifted me a sample pack. Several beaders this weekend were using the dyed fireline and it IS gorgeous.
Recall that in the earlier post about this weekend, I had to remove the images in order to post it. Here is a pic of Marlene in one of her amazing garments she made using the Shambolic(TM) method of felting pieced silk.
Check out the felted dazzling jewelry Pat is wearing in this pic. These are pieces she teaches at Tucson in February, as a Swarovski ambassador.
