Closeout on KITS!!!
With a whole new book of designs coming and kits, I need to thin out older inventory. This is your chance to save and pick up kits that are going to be discontinued. The patterns will still be available, but not the complete kits. Don't miss out, especially ones with special fringe beads, as many of these use beads I can't even find or get anymore! Orders will be filled in date order. FREE Shipping on orders over $75. Many of these are down to the last one or two kits don't miss out. Click here to view.

Working on the
New Studio!
New location, new studio, overlooking beautiful Padilla Bay. I'll be running mini art retreats where you can come and bead, quilt, create and relax!

Right now I'm covered in paint and dust, but hopefully in a week or so I'll be able to finally finish up the final designs for the new book and later this fall or early next year begin the art retreats.

Check my schedule to see where I'll be throughout the summer. I'll also be coming back to Bead Haven in Watauga TX! AND Wild Beads over in Arlington, TX this fall! Can't wait to see all you gals! It's been a long year! Orders will be filled once a week, if you need your order sooner call me.

Coming to Portland, Oregon
August 14th to 16th
This may be a new show, but it's going to be a fabulous one for you crafters out there. Not just quilts, or knitting or stitching but all of it and more! I'll be bringing many of my new designs and projects.

Having Fun with Applique
Art Quilt Designs!

I have new ones on the drawing board and samples on the way. Click here to see the quilt designs. If you have a pattern idea e-mail it to me. If you want your fluffy buddy imortalized in fabric, I do custom designs, 12" x 12" portrait with placement and color code chart for $85. If it's one I'd like to use as a design for retail and it's okay with you, you will recieve 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.


New Book!
"Gotcha Covered!"
Pre-Release Special $20 FREE Shipping!

Just a little teaser, this is the body of the Paisley Flower lip balm cover. I LOVE this pattern, and it's even more stunning on the Kleenex cover and adorable as a pen cover! Tweaking the sizing and now working on the rest of the samples. Not too much longer!

This fun book will have great designs from fun and fanciful to elegant for pen and lip balm covers! Also kleenex tissue cover designs, the travel size ones. Just right for gifts and that perfect little something for someone special.

Travelling Bead Board...
As seen in the Bead & Button, June 2012

The new bead boards have curved edges so that your thread will slide around them easier and all the bases are Natural so that your bead colors stand out better.

Travelling Bead Board ~ Natural Lids Only . . . $25   Order

Interested in Beading Retreats?
I'll be planning more mini art and beading retreats in the coming months. Click here to find out more.


Private Teaching...
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 RV, 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.

Classes at Shows
Keep checking 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.
