This Beaded Embroidered Button class was scheduled at Bead Street as a special request from the gals you see in these photos. They signed up before seeing a class sample - actually they signed up before they even knew what Nancy Sathre-Vogel was teaching.
Notice the table - students brought snacks -
looks more like a party than a bead class.
|Joy used a stone center and |
then embellished the sides
creating a lot of depth
|Janet & Masoumeh started with the same button.|
But with different beads - looked totally different.
|Again, our 14 year old Irene ran 'circles'|
In the beginning, things went well. Nancy, as usual, conveyed a 'ton' of info.
She has done bead embroidery a long time and was able to break down the steps
into easy pieces so that everyone was able to finish their project.
But, towards the end of the evening, things got out of control.
There seems to be a little rivalry between Janet and Joy
on who is the "most entertaining student".
The jury is still out.
These are some of Nancy's embroidered cuffs. She does absolutely stunning work and the photos show how talented she is. I have no doubt that the gals in Nancy's class will produce equally beautiful pieces. They now have the tools, but may not get the time until after Christmas.
I can't wait to see what they come up with.

Nancy will be teaching this again sometime in February or
March 2012. If you would like to be part of the class,
