Item Description

Compiled by the author of Beaded Embellishment, this gift basket contains:

1 Beaded Embellishment: Techniques and Designs for Embroidering on Cloth book by Amy C. Clarke and Robin Atkins (retail value $21.95.

1 Bead embroidery kit containing: size 11° Japanese and Czech seed beads in 8 special blends of color (red, orange, yellow, white, green, blue, purple, and black), 2 special blends of a mixture of size 4°, size 6°, and size 8° glass seed beads as well as other novelty beads. 1 threaded size 11° sharp needle, extra thread, and a pin back (retail value $15).

1 heart template (hand-drawn with colored pencils on archival paper), cotton quilting cloth, plastic template, and ultrasuede backing (retail value $15.

1 lampworked needle threader made by Shipyard Pint Glassworks.

Special Instructions

Want to make a spiral heart pin like the one featured in Beaded Embellishment: Techniques and Designs for Embroidering on Cloth by Amy C. Clarke (now Amy Clarke Moore) and Robin Atkins (Interweave, 2002) page 59? Use a cartoon hand-drawn by one of the authors (Amy) simply stitch it to your fabric and you’re ready to bead. Note: The colored pencils will color the thread as the piece is being beaded--but it won't affect the piece.

These are the same kits that students use in my classes. Each kit contains my special mix of size 11 seed beads in a spectrum of hues, tints, and tones as well as novelty beads and a threaded needle and is a great starting point for beginning bead embroidery.

Contained in a canvas bag, the kit contains 8 small plastic bags, each with about 5 grams of a bead soup.

Primary colors: red, blue, and yellow
Secondary colors: green, orange, and purple
Tints and Tones: white and black

Within each hue group are tints and tones of each hue, in a variety of finishes from matte to transparent.

Two plastic bags contain novelty beads (4 grams each) --including a range of size 4°, 6°, and 8° seed beads as well as bugle beads.
