The Outlaws

Several years ago Judith invited Ken along to some of Tucson's Gem shows to look at beads.  Thus was born a partnership of two creative minds. Ken learned to bead crochet and Judith learned how to speak some computerese.  They formed Bead Crochet Designers LLC and published Bead Crochet Element Designer (BCED) for the PC in 2008 and Bead Pattern Designer (BCPD) for the PC in 2012.  They are currently working on Android Tablet and phone applications for both peyote and bead crochet graphing.

In the winter months both the partners hang out on the backside of Tombstone's Allen Street where the wind blows the dust around, the stagecoach makes regular passes and gunfighters are a common sight.
