Looming With Bugle Beads – Free Class with Michaels Classroom

The Project PDF is here:  Looming with Bugles

Description for our class:

In this action-packed class we are teaming up with Meredith Roddy from Beadalon to bring you an advanced looming technique! We will create a gorgeous bugle band bracelet with a loomed button closure. Previous experience looming will be helpful in preparation for this class. We will briefly cover setting up the loom and how to loom, but the focus of class is on using the Czech Seed Bead Bugles, and the creation of a loomed-in button closure. There are past classes in the jewelry section that focus on setting up the loom and basic looming.

The Beaded Fabric Hoop from Fiber Artist Nichole Vogelsinger of wildboho

All products available at

Nichole first came to our attention through the first and then second BoHo embroidery books.

Nichole Vogelsinger is a self-taught fiber artist, stitcher, writer and teacher who has a weakness for lots of color and anything floral. From the minute we saw her embroidery art with thread, we wondered what would happen if she had our beads.  We have our answer with this amazing beaded hoop.

About Nichole

Nichole’s creative journey began when, as a child, she would explore the local fabric shops with her mother. She developed a love for fiber arts and as an adult, hand embroidering printed fabrics became a favorite hobby. That hobby soon became an Instagram feed and then a book, Boho Embroidery (Lucky Spool, 2016) and then another book, Boho Embroidery: The Pattern Collection (Lucky Spool, 2018). She is the creator of the Boho Stitch Along, teacher of embroidery workshops and writer of her adventures in the world of stitchery at wildboho.com.
