Those of you who remember me from my days as the Guide to Beadwork on About.com will be happy to know that there is a new Guide for the site, and she's already been busy blogging and designing free patterns! Chris Franchetti Michaels, the author of Teach Yourself Visually: Beadwork was my Contributing Writer at About.com, mainly responsible for designing easy beading patterns, and now she's taken over as the Guide for the entire site.
Take a few minutes to pop over to the forums and give her a warm welcome! While you're there, you can also check out the free beading patterns and free beading stitch tutorials.
Chris is a very talented and very knowledgeable beader, and I'm looking forward to seeing what she does with the Beadwork site!
