The Innovative Beads Expo (or as someone misread it last night the Innovative Bead Sexpo, which would bring in a whole other crowd) is back in Manhattan on May 4, 5, and 6.  We have an exciting group of classes including 3 bead crochet sessions taught by yours truly.

Friday afternoon's class (May 4, 1:30-4:30) will be The Side by Side necklace.  This is a good class for someone who wants an introduction to crocheting with beads because we use larger beads and fiber. 

On Saturday morning (May 5, 10:30-1:30), I will teach the Turkish Delight Bracelet.  This is an intermediate- level bead crochet project based on a stitch that I learned in Turkey.  It uses smaller beads and crochet thread to create a sparkly bracelet with an eye-catching closure.  The closures are done with needle and  thread.

Sunday morning's class (May 6, 10:30-1:30) will be an introduction to Tubular Bead Crochet.  Students will make a bead crochet tube and turn it into a pendant with a bit of simple wire work.  Crochet experience is helpful but not required.

Students who register before 5:00pm on Wednesday, May 2, 2012 will save $10 on the class price.  For more information and registration form, please visit Innovative Beads Expo.

Along with my classes, Marti Brown will be offering wire work and Viking knit classes, Meg Fillmore will be teaching a stringing class and an earring class, and Pat Reisner will be offering 3 fun, needle weaving classes.  Hope to see you there.
