This is the very first piece of bead embroidery ever done on lacy's stiff stuff. Completed 20 years ago and still beautiful.

~ Before Lacy's, bead embroidery was treated as simply a CRAFT, not the ART that it is! 

Lacy's Stiff Stuff is the original premium beading foundation for your bead embroidery projects. It is the first of its kind. You will see imitations but nothing on the market is quite like it.

Lacy's was developed out of necessity - Lacy, herself, was a beginning beader when Lacy's Stiff Stuff was developed. Before Lacy's there were very few options for bead embroidery, and those few options were NOT ideal. We are talking about note cards, paper bags, diaper liners, flimsy iron-on interfacing or felt and butter tub lids. I'm not kidding! She was trying to learn bead embroidery and was VERY frustrated with these options - and how difficult they were to use. Lacy's Stiff Stuff beading foundation was born out of that frustration. The very first piece of bead embroidery that was EVER made on Lacy's Stiff Stuff (pictured above) was also Lacy's very first piece of bead embroidery! If she can do it, SO CAN YOU!

Before Lacy's, bead embroidery was treated as simply a CRAFT, but you and I know - it's an ART! You put your heart (and a lot of time!) into your bead embroidery - why wouldn't you want to use a quality foundation on which to build your pieces? You want your pieces to last for generations - through wearing, weathering, washing, and whatever else might come their way. Lacy's is flexible, yet tough. It has stood the test of time. The first piece ever beaded onto Lacy's is still as beautiful today as it was the day Lace completed it - almost 20 years ago! Your work deserves to last and be enjoyed for years to come!
