BE INSPIRED and get creative as fun-loving artist Lyric Kinard guides you through the basics of beaded embellishment on cloth. 

Make straight or curved solid lines, split or join them, or simply add one bead at a time. Cage a beautiful cabochon, or get silly with stacks, the perfect finish for your favorite funky flowers. 

Are you a quilter? Foil the quilt police and learn to bead from the top of a finished quilt with no knots or mess on the back

A: Absolutely yes! If you are an international (outside of the US) student and have links to share, please do!

A: Each lesson includes several short video links as well as written supply lists and occasional illustrations.

Q: I’m half-way across the world in a different time zone. Will I miss half of what is going on?

Q: What do I need to know about using a computer?
A: You’ll need to be able to save the URL and password for the Ruzuku site. That’s about it!
