A Book Review - How to Make 100 Bead Embroidery Motifs by Genevieve Crabe

 Some of you may know Genevieve Crabe as a wonderful Certified Zentangle Teacher, she has also developed a whole heap of Mandala Stencils as well.   

Her book published by Creative Publishing International, is a wonderful resource for bead artists as well as those who do embroidery.  I think the designs would lend themselves to being used in a mixed media journal that includes substrates such as fabric, paper and cardstock to name a few. 

Genevieve's book is a wonderful introduction to beading on fabric.  The designs are easy to follow and instructions in the Technical Support chapter are well set out.   The designs are wonderful and would also be useful for combining embroidery and beading.  Overall, this is a great book with some great designs and ideas on beading.  I am glad to have it in my personal book collection.
