Beginning Embroidery with Bead Embellishment: BEBE

BEBE crazy pieced techniques with traditional and bead embroidery by Christen Brown
printer friendly image


This is a great introduction class to crazy pieced traditional embroidery stitches. The fabric base is prepared at home, so class time is devoted to learning the stitches.

The base can be crazy pieced, or ironed onto a piece of muslin on a pre- printed crazy pieced square which is available through the store.

The stitches that are learned in class are traditional embroidery stitches that can be used in many projects. Beads can be added for extra embellishment.
