Dana Fiddes & Bert Freed: Bead Crochet Jewelry
Oct 30, 2020

Learn about bead crochet with experts Bert Rachel Freed and Dana Freed Freed Fiddes, authors of Bead Crochet Jewelry: An Inspired Journey Through 27 Designs. Bert and Dana will demonstrate the basics of bead crochet—chain stitch with beads—a technique that can be used to create beautiful jewelry that looks complicated but is actually very easy!

They will also discuss more advanced techniques (like circular crochet) while sharing their story, inspiration, and designs. Their mission is to encourage everyone to make something with their hands and believe a job done with one’s hands and heart is always a job Well Done!

This is a Live One Time ZOOM Event on Friday October 30th at 6 Eastern, 5 Central, 4 Mountain, 3 Pacific.

We Appreciate Your Support

Here at Longmont Yarn Shoppe we’ve been brainstorming strategies to weather the storm that the COVID-19 pandemic has struck upon us. The impact to the shop’s operations is extreme, & beyond our doors the ripple effect is extensive.

Temporarily gone are in-real-life trade shows, workshops and so many other ways we gather to support and celebrate our shared passion. From sheep farmers to our local indie dyers and creators of all things from patterns to accessories to yarn bowls, all are feeling the effect on their lives and livelihoods.    

In our search to keep LYS afloat and keep you, our customers engaged, we’ve explored new ways of doing things and learned other ways to reach out and connect. We appreciate your support during this trying time, and we can’t wait to see you in person at the shop some day soon!
