Holland resident Marty Swank calls herself the crackpot beader, evidenced in her blog of the same name at http://crackpotbeader.blogspot.com. During the program she will demonstrate how to make beaded edgings and fringe to add glitz and pizzazz to clothing, scarves, quilts and other fiber art. By using seed beads on a sample surface, attendees can make picot edgings, beaded ruffles, drop fringe, branched fringe and even kinky fringe. She says, “No beading experience is needed to enjoy playing with sparkly, shiny beads.”
The Lakeshore Fiber Arts Guild invites anyone interested in the textile fiber arts to their monthly program meetings held the first Wednesday of each month at the Holland Area Arts Council.
