Travelling Bead Boards
All boards include binder clips to hold on lid. If you have problems with your hands, you can also pick up the self sticking velcro straps and use at least two straps, one for the length and width to hold it shut.

Interested in Beading & Art Retreats?

I'll be planning more retreats. To find out more click here or sign up for my beading retreat newsletter. The Retreats will be open sessions. Enjoy working inside or outside overlooking the Teton Mountains. You can learn anything I have kitted in my studio or pulled from my HUGE bead stash, OR you can bring a beading project you've needed help with! There will be beading, applique quilt designs, and who knows what else available by then for you to explore and create!

Applique Art Quilt Designs!

Click here to see the quilt designs. Working on getting back to the "drawing board" again. I love to draw and creating these different designs are so much fun. If you have a pattern idea e-mail it to me. If you want your fluffy buddy imortalized in fabric, I do custom designs, .75 cents per sq. inch., portrait with placement and color code chart. If it's one I'd like to use as a design for retail and it's okay with you, you will receive the pattern for FREE! Just e-mail me several pictures of your furry friend close up and in action, and his/her name and a little about them. It helps me capture more of their personality.

Classes at Shows, Private Teaching ...
Check back or sign-up for my e-mail newsletter to be the first to know where I'll be and to get free tickets (not all shows give us tickets though but I'll post when I have them and for which ones)! Plus new classes to be added at the trunk shows and crafting shows.

As I travel cross country, if I'm passing through or fairly close to your town I offer private classes. Minimum students 4 and I need a place to park my truck and 20ft camper, and 110v power for free, in front of your house works just fine! I don't charge for my travel or stay, since I was coming through anyway. Contact me in advance to find out if I'll be anywhere by you, or look at my schedule and you can sort of figure out where I'll be and around what dates. Click here to see what classes are available and the prices.
