Beadwork for Fabric Artists shows you, bead by bead and stitch by stitch, how to add bead embroidery to your work for texture, color, and excitement. Well-known artist, lecturer, and teacher Larkin Jean Van Horn shares eight glorious pages of her beaded work in full color, and in clear text and diagrams shows the component stitches that went into her work, which will allow you to extend your own work in the same ways.
The book covers seven techniques for adding beads directly to fabric, six techniques for additional texture and fringe, several edge treatments, and three ways to firmly hold larger elements called cabochons onto your pieces.
The book is Wire-O bound, so it will lay flat on your table while you work, making it easy to refer to as you learn each new stitch.
Your results will be stunning, dazzling, and complex, but Larkin makes every step along the way easy. Don’t wait to add sparkle to your next quilt, garment, or other fabric piece!
