Project and Sample by Kate Richbourg

We're always looking to innovate our work...and we're always inspired by the women innovators who came before us. Our trio of TGBE Midwinter Market kits are looking at how we ladder...Kate's taking it to the next level. Named for three women innovators (who, of course, had their ideas claimed by men), these kits are our pride and joy.

Margaret Keane was a painter now known for her "big eyes" series of paintings...but at first, she was the painter behind the scenes only, as her husband stole credit for her work! For over a decade she painted and he profited, until she came clean. With tow opportunities to prove he was the real painter, Walter Keane either didn't show up or pretended he had a sore shoulder...Margaret proved her talent and the rest is history! A 2014 film was made about Margaret, called Big Eyes. You can watch it on Netflix!

Please join us as our worldwide community gathers on Facebook and YouTube at 10:30am Pacific Time on January 12th and 13th, 2023. It’s so much fun to go live with us and bead together! After the live broadcast the video will be available above.
