Join Lisa Yoder for a 3-hour class that Lisa calls Beading 101. Lisa says, “I will teach you the basics of beading on fabric one bead at a time. I will show samples of my hand stitched and beaded art quilts so you can see how I incorporate beads into my fiber art. This class is for beginners who have patience, a love of hand work and good eye sight (with or without corrective lenses).” *Photo Credit: “Beaded Circles” by Lisa Yoder
