CONTEMPORARY GEOMETRIC BEADWORK

an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators

Kits are mailing out this week!

My table is overflowing with things like cigar boxes, bits of ribbon, and many hundreds of tubes of sparkling glass beads.

This is a picture of the inner label on one of the boxes.

Everything is very beautiful, and the last of the beads I was waiting for arrived late today.

I’m filming a bit of video to go along with the Mowgli kits, in a special effort to be helpful to people to whom pattern reading doesn’t come naturally. The opportunity of the double kit for that piece, with colourways in both blue/green and pink/green, really lent itself to a lot of exploration.

I trust that each of you who’ve ordered one will be pleased!

If you have ordered a CGB kit of any type, you should receive an email tomorrow giving you a tracking number for your box. Please be aware that it will take a couple of days to get them all packed, wrapped, boxed and mailed, and that they are going out during the busy holiday season as well. Happily, however, they are all riding in style, in boxed Priority Mail.

We love you! And I thank you for your support of our project.

      Hi, Judy! This kit was a special release several years ago, and not available right now.
      Best!
