an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
If you haven’t stopped by the Book Blog lately, new content is streaming in every day, and it has a fresh new look that matches the books themselves.
Please feel free to share the Pattern Library link with your friends – there is a huge amount of useful information from the Basics Section of each volume, and a couple of wonderful free full tutorials (the Tri-Wing Ring and the Layered Rick-Rack Bangle) courtesy of the project.
Our books are stuffed full of even more delight (the two-volume set is well over 500 pages) with commentary on every form, bead colourways and numbers on most, and hundreds of full-colour, clear photographs. We love to sell books, and you can find them in paper and digital form, accessible all over the world. Click here.
More content will be added every day, leading up to the official Book Launch at the upcoming Tucson shows this early February. If you’d like wholesale or consignment copies of CGB to sell at your show, email Kate with your location and quantity, or hit the online shop and reserve your copies at a special price. We’ll bring them directly to your booth at your show, with a smile and a hug, postcards and a poster.
Thank you all for your support and interest in the project! In the next few months, I look forward to sharing a whole new wave of beadwork, content and special releases.
Happy holidays, merry winter, or hang on, it’s almost the Solstice,
