I am honored to have an opportunity to review Lyric Kinard's new beading DVD today on the blog!
Lyric is a fellow host on the "Sketchbook Challenge" and I've enjoyed getting to know her there.
Oh, I've seen her work, watched her Quilting Arts DVDs and heard lots of good things about her but I've never met her in person.
Watching the DVD felt like meeting her though!
One of the things I really loved about the DVD was her voice...it sounds so calming and the distinct way that she enunciates her words made it so easy to understand what she was saying (coming from someone with a bit of hearing loss- that is important).
Bonnie McCaffery was the videographer and did a spectacular job with scene shots, the sound, and close-ups. She shot the close ups in such a way that you could see every movement that Lyric (and her beading needle) made.
Great job Bonnie!
Back to the actual content.
Lyric covers applying one bead at a time, attaching a long line of beads (seed beads, bugle beads), a curved line of beads, stacks of beads (including funky chunkies), caging a cabochon (or just making one look better!), scrumbling and how to attach beads to a finished quilt without leaving evidence on the back of it.
I learned so many cool tips about needle selection and thread usage. Now I know why I was having so much trouble beading the edge of a small bag that I had made...
This video is PACKED with information! There is truly something for everyone here - from the newbie to the advanced beader.
And the price is right people...19.95 (plus shipping) until Oct. 12. The price increases after that to 24.95 (plus shipping). Grab it while you can save a few bucks...you can use the savings to buy more beads.
I'm giving away a copy of the DVD here on my blog!
There is one small catch though...you'll have to answer a question for me to be entered in the give-away.
Q:What is the craziest thing that you've ever seen anyone put beads on?
So - leave a comment with your answer and I'll choose a name on Oct.7, this Friday. That will give a few days for everyone to leave a comment.
If you don't have an email attached to your blog name, please leave me a way to contact you.
Or be sure to check back Friday for the winner.
If you just can't wait - here is a link to go ahead and purchase it. Remember it's on sale until Oct. 12.
