Yea I'm so excited! 34 people have already signed up for the beadalong! I have had a few people ask some questions so here are the answers:
1. The book is back ordered or doesn't come into the UK until April. Can I still participate?
YES! When your book arrives simply jump in. You don't have to catch up if you don't want to. Just jump in to the current project.
2. Do we have to use the same exact colors as in the book?
NO...and honestly I would rather you not. The whole point of the bead along is to learn a new technique and see what other color combos people do. It would be super boring if we all did the same thing.
3. Can we see the projects before we commit to the beadalong?
SURE! If the book is in stock where you live simply head to your local book store and have a look at the book. I can't post pictures or patterns because of copy right issues but if you can get a hold of a book then you have your answer. Sometimes amazon will give you a sneak peek into the book also.
I got so tickled because someone posted that I had found another way to make money off of them and was acting kind of testy about it. I think it's hilarious because I'm just promoting a great book and trying to find a way for beaders all over the world to bead the same project at the same time. I don't make any money off anyone unless you buy the book or supplies from me. I don't get a kickback in anyway from the publisher or designer. I simply just enjoy doing the beadalongs. You don't have to buy anything from me unless you want to support my business. For those who do buy from me please know how much Sammy and myself appreciate it.
I look forward to seeing every one's first project. Some people's books haven't arrived yet and wanted to know materials for the first project. So here goes:
1 (6mm) round pearl
1 (4mm) round pearl
4 Grams size 6 Seed Bead
12 Grams size 11 Seed Beads
