Free Bead Loom Tutorials (3/14/2014)
Bead looming… It still escapes my grasp. It’s not that I can’t do it, but it just takes so long to set up. I took 2 bead looming classes from 2 different Japanese instructors at the Bead and Button Show almost 2 years ago. Both projects sit unfinished. I bought several others projects, and all the beads, and they are still sitting there also. Maybe it’s because I have 2 dogs and 2 cats – I can never find the time and room to get it all set up and all the beads laid out – before I have to pick it up again. And I can’t find a way to do it in my lap. ***sigh*** Maybe someday. My hats off to those of you who find the time and space – and the patience – to work on a bead loom.

I’m so anxious to feel the sun’s warmth, hear the birds chirping, and to see the first few signs of green life pushing through the snow. So I stitched up a few quick blossoms to wear on my wrist and cheer me up on these cold snowy days, and I want to share it with you. Note: There is a separate chart and the bead key to download here if you want to use my colors.

I read a forum thread by Kathy Kostinsky on Beadwork.About.com of her style of loom bead weaving. I enjoy loom beading but for me, hiding, weaving in, or in other words having to mess with warp threads at all has been the biggest hindrance from doing much loom work, so her no warp method technique was something I was interested in trying.
