As an added bonus, you’ll receive three free PDF patterns, a shopping list of materials, and an excerpt from her book Mastering Beadwork: A Comprehensive Guide to Off-Loom Techniques.

By registering for this engaging online course, you will have the opportunity to connect with other students and be a part of a community to bounce ideas off and to share your designs. And when you have mastered the basics and explored further possibilities with African Helix stitch, you can move on to your own unique designs featuring this beautiful and delightful stitch!
