How many times have you seen those beautiful big tassels, lovely colors and great beads? Now you can assemble your own using perle cotton & delica beads. We will complete a tassel with a bubble beaded top, but you will also get instruction to complete cascade beading as well.

Kit comes with all other needed supplies.

Students provide: (2) balls of #8 perle cotton (same color or 2 separate colors) & 2 tubs of Delica beads or (3) tubs of Mill Hill Glass Seed Beads to compliment perle cotton. Needlework scissors, additional lighting & magnification.

Originally from Maryland, with a connection to Michelle Arsenault and Stitching Pretty from the beginning of their existence. Cathy moved to Florida after her husband retired from Law Enforcement.

In 1994 she purchased the Golden Needle a small machine embroidery shop, and added counted cross stitch to the inventory and never looked back. After 20 years of being a shop owner, Cathy sold the shop in Dec of 2014 and started her new journey as cross stitch designer, and the other daring duo of Gypsy Stitching. Cathy designs under White Lyon Needleart Designs, but designs are distributed through Gypsy Stitching, many of which are inspired by the beach, and words to live by.

Cathy has always had a love for needlework and sewing and has tried to keep it in her life. She has thoroughly enjoyed her new journey and where it has taken her.
