Tricks to Looming and Bead Weaving

Learning to bead weave on a “loom” just got amazingly easy and uncomplicated. Sam Applegate is a dedicated textile artist who joined our team in Spring of 2013. She brought with her an extensive knowledge and passion for looming and fiber arts. In no time, Sam made a really uncomplicated, beautiful loom for bead weaving using just KO thread, a design board and thread snips. Simple is the best word to describe her method of looming. No assembly required makes this loom out of this world and all of Sam’s great techniques and tips to bead weaving keep it effortless and, yes, simple. Please watch the video all the way through. It takes less than an hour and Sam walks you through every step of loom creation, bead weaving and finishing your project from first thread to last knot. Best of all, the learning is free! Then tell all your bead buddies, get out your thread and boards and start looming & weaving. Warning: You may become addicted! Happy beading, everyone!
