an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
it’s All Books All Of The Time as I finish up the final layouts and assembly of the full Contemporary Geometric Beadwork series (including foreign translations (yay!) and reissues of the first two volumes).
I expect to finish, print and ship our 500 signed pre-order bundles this late September, but no official press date is set. Amazon pre-orders for regular copies will open soon.

We had a lot of fun with our final internet beadalong with the Facebook group Seed Beads And More, and I am happy to say that we finalized our beginning Cycle pattern to something neat we can teach anyone to do – the Flower Face Assembly.
I’ll have a finished pattern to share here with you quite soon. In the meantime, for those interested, here are some updates.
Our Meet The Team European workshop near Limoges, France (Oct 5-11) is available for signup, it’s affordable, and there are just a few sleepover spaces left at the beautiful old Domaine de Romefort in Saint-Leonard-de-Noblat, France. Yes! You can share a room and yes we can help you find a roomie! Please contact Marca Smit via email if you would like more information.

July 2019, Nova Scotia
Art / mathematical beading retreat with Sam Norgard – sign up soon if you want a space in this summer’s session (I’ll be participating remotely) or the next (I will be there in person).
While I finish all of this work, I’m taking the gentle opportunity brought by a full desk to put social media and commerce and on hiatus.
