Magpie's Scrappy Bead Class SU: 9/11-9/22 Class on 9/25

In that case, I’m signing up TODAY! :smiley:

Here are a few more mini journals with scrappy bead spines. @calluna, they fit pencils perfectly :wink:

I also think these would make perfect accents on a clothesline necklace or bracelet!

OK I signed up! I’m super bummed that I probably won’t be able to make the class live (it’s college football season here, and I live in my hubby’s college town, so on home football games we tailgate & go to the game - GO HOKIES!). But! I’m excited to get the instructions and give it a go! These are really beautiful. :heart_eyes:

I promise it’s easy! I figured out some ways to make them sturdy & keep their shape, finish the ends neatly etc. A few tips & tricks but anybody can do this, you’ll all end up with scrappy little treasures & the ability to repeat the process.

At some point I was considering a beaded curtain, lol. Maybe one of these days…

That’s ambitious…

They can get a little addictive when you start sorting & pairing scraps, you know? I ended up with handfuls!

I signed up and really hope I can do it live … somehow I’ll convince my hubby to take an extended lunch that Saturday from house construction :smiley:

I’d like to take this class again! I had a lot of fun making my first bead in Asheville. But, I should have made a few notes, so this will help me get going again. I’ll sign up, but if I find I can’t make the live class, or someone needs my spot, I can be bumped from the live session :slight_smile:

I’ve got a full thread catcher by the sewing machine that’s just perfect for this class, how about you? I’d love to see your stash! Show us your"garbage" treasure!

Good timing for this reminder! I just promised my scraps to a neighbor; better salvage some before she gets here!

Even a teeny handful will make dozens of beads, you don’t need much!

Wow, I really haven’t been around much lately – we’re doing Zoom classes? How awesome is that??? *Runs off to email kittykill…

I think I can make approximately 7 billion beads with the amount of scraps in my stash. :rofl:

Only a few more days to sign up.

On the 23rd everyone who has signed up will get a pdf and a link to Saturday’s class.

If you can’t make it on Saturday, after the class I will have a link to the recording.

These are my Halloween scraps from my current project. I need to sign up so I can learn how to put them to good use!

I’m really glad that this project will be available even after the class, because these beads look super cute and I’d love to learn how to make them. But the timing, for me, for the class is terrible. :tired_face:
