Beading, needlework focus of crafting demonstrations

art craftdemosCraft demonstrations at Dogwood Crafters in Dillsboro during the next week include beading by Nan Smith and punch needlework by Jeri Buek.


Smith will use beads to create spiders for Halloween decorations and demonstrate how to take beading beyond jewelry from 2-5 p.m. Sept. 13.

Buek will demonstrate miniature punch needlework, which captures the look of antique hooked rugs on a small scale, from 2-4 p.m. Sept. 18. Buek will have materials available for those wishing to try their hand at this craft and will offer instruction and assistance.

Smith and Buek’s works are for sale at the shop in Dillsboro. Dogwood Crafters is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., with evening hours until 9 p.m. in October.
