The amazing bead embroidery of Eric Ennis

We are really excited here at the store about this article in the News&Observer about Raleigh artist Eric Ennis. He creates amazing, complex bead embroidery on fabric panels. Our staff loves his work and we love working with him when he brings projects in to the store for bead matching. Eric's eye for color is incredible and his gentle sense of humor make him one of our favorite customers.

Eric's work is available for sale at Bellagio Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina.

Note: if you live in Raleigh and DON'T get the N&O at home, why not? did you know that without locally-based journalists we'd not only miss great stories like Eric's, we'd also miss out on the good investigative reporting that keeps our elected and appointed officials on their toes. From college coaches, to highway patrol officers, to commissioners of agriculture, your local paper is watching out for the interests of the local people. Support them by subscribing, today. Okay, I'm down off my soapbox!
