Dazzled by all the seed bead colors and shapes you see in the bead store, but uncertain how to get started? Think they are just way too small to work with? We're pleased to announce a series of classes which will make you a seed bead aficionado in easy, fun steps. Each month we will offer a new class of the series. Each month you will learn a different stitch or variation, and you will have a chance to complete a simple project in that stitch. You do not have to take all the classes in the series to enjoy them. Even though the classes are for beginners, intermediate seed beaders may find a project you want to make! Also, in each class you will be provided with a handout covering everything you want to know about seed beads, such as types, colors, sizes and shapes of seed beads, thread and needles to use, and a basic stitch diagram.
