Catherine Haedrich

Catherine Haedrich In 2010, Catherine Haedrich was introduced to the super fun world of beading by a knitter-cross-pollinator friend who offered a lesson in flat and circular peyote at her home. She initially tried to pass on taking up another new hobby, claiming, “I have yarn beyond life expectancy”. Only at the last minute did she acquiesce to the evening’s activities and she is so glad she did. She credits her early experiences with more advanced beaders for giving her insight into what was possible for the future and catching the beader’s buzz early. As a serial crafter, she works almost exclusively in beads these days and admits to beading being the first medium she has been able to design in. Her motto for why she beads is, “Woman cannot live on spreadsheets alone”. As a Project Management Coordinator she constantly tries to think of better, faster ways to learn and teach and with a Meetup group since 2011, she gets to test the waters on some of those ideas. She has decided to take her show on the road because she loves to travel and needs to plant seeds for retirement. She is haunted by the fact she worked in Czech Republic three years but was not yet a beader, a fact she has tried to make up for over the years with many visits to Jablonec Nad Nisou. While her husband is supportive of her hobby he recently returned home from a business trip and asked, “Did you miss me?” When she hesitated (he had only been gone two days), he mumbled in defeat, “If only I were a bead”. Indeed, if only we all were beads!
