New This Week at Laura’s Beads – April 10

Important Scheduling Note

We will be closed on April 17-19 for a family vacation. Please be sure to plan accordingly and we’ll see you when we get back!

Events Newly Added to Calendar

Intermediate Bead-Weaving Class: Scalloped Brick Stitch Bracelet by Caravan Beads
This piece has a lot of texture and personality! You’ll be creating segments of brick stitch using different size beads, including the eye-catching large bugles, then stringing them together with an assortment of beads on bunches of strands.

Intermediate Bead-Weaving Class: Peyote with a Twist
This class was so popular last month that we couldn’t accommodate everyone who was interested, so we wanted to run some additional sessions. Developed by Gerlinde Lenz, this technique makes a rope that resembles bead crochet without all the headaches. We’ll start with “Peyote with a Twist 101” to teach you the basics of the stitch and make a simple starter design; then move on to “Peyote with a Twist 102” to teach you how to take it up a notch by stitching from a grid to make a beautiful geometric design. We warn you though — this one is very addictive!
