Jenny asks…

Does anyone know any instructions on beadweaving?

Once i got this kit for Christmas my Dog Lala tore up the instructions. I looked all over online but i found no results.

Sandra asks…

Is there a good software/program for Mac that will allow me to create beadweaving patterns?

I want to start beadweaving and don’t know where to begin. I have an old loom a family member gave me. but, I need help. If anyone could help me with the supplies list I need and sites that could help me out that would be great, thanks a bunch!

Here are some good starting points. All of these sites show basic techniques and give supply information, especially the Illinois State Museum site.

If you’re more comfortable with that approach, you can also search ‘YouTube’ for videos.
Good luck!

You can easily change the colors – and just repeat the tractor over and over if you don’t like the rest.
