"The Joy of learning French Hand Beading from Karen Torrisi has been for me, a wonderful new sewing experience.
Karen's designs,techniques,teaching method's,particularly selection of types/colour of beads has been very helpful,also plenty of encouragement to look further into the craft..
I would have no hesitation in recommending Karen to anyone who is interested in The Art of French Handbeading Techniques."

"Beading offered a whole new dimension to my already overabundant embroidery projects. It has been a delight to be infected with your enthusiasm.  In many ways it reminds me of strawberry picking- there is always another glistening fruit under the next leaf!"

"I have participated in a number of Karen's classes and intend to do more.   They are well constructed, informative and a lot of fun.   Karen's instructions are clear and easy to follow and Karen's enthusiasm for her craft is reflected in the classes, she always gives that little bit extra that makes you want to do more.   Karen is very professional and I would highly recommend her classes."

"I have been attending Karen's wonderful for the past 18 months and look forward to each one with great excitement and anticipation. Karen is a very proficient teacher and has the patience of a saint. I have been so inspired by what I have learnt that I made all my Christmas presents last year and each one was very gratefully received. I would recommend this class to anyone with or without any sewing experience as you will get a great deal of satisfaction with the skills that you will learn. As a grandmother I have been able to start and teach my granddaughter some of the skills I have learnt"

"I am writing to thank you for the absolutely wonderful classes you run. 
My life changed so much in 2005 when I found I could become so creative beading. 
It is your relaxed and understanding patience that encourages us novices to just keep going with this very theraputic hobby.
I am counting the days until my next class with you.
Kindest regards and again "thank you" for being so inspiring."
