I'm pleased to announce that I am now a published kumihimo author! A tutorial I devised for creating a beaded Edo Yatsu (aka hollow braid) has been included in the Kalmbach Publishing Kumihimo Fiber and Bead Jewelry Special. It's now available on news stands, at your local bead store, and in the major US craft stores. Or you can purchase a physical or digital copy through the link. Thanks to all my friends, family, bead society members, students, and everyone else who has supported and encouraged me on this journey.
