Stanley Levy's interest in beadwork started during World War Two. His parents and their families were all clothing manufacturers, and his sister taught him beadwork in the shelters. Upon leaving school he had a desire to become a pastry cook, but at that time was allergic to icing sugar, so went into his parents' gown factory and trained as a machine embroiderer.
He is a founder member of the Bead Society of Great Britain, and was the first to give a demonstration for them. In addition he has taught bead embroidery in Los Angeles and The Netherlands.
Having been retired in recent years, Stanley has concentrated on writing this bead embroidery book.
