I came from the Hippie generation, age of Aquarius, baby boomer. All my craft talent was self taught. Macrame to beading to sewing all started in the early 70s. Gardening is my true love but in Illinois who can even walk out side. So beading in the winter brings in the color we all miss. To have a project that is portable and wearable meets all my criteria. Stringing is fun but bead weaving is a challange.
