Question: Do I need to know how to bead weave when I purchase a pattern?

Answer: Yes! You will need to know basic bead weaving stitches such as ladder stitch, peyote stitch and brick stitch. You will also need to know how to add thread (if your existing thread is too short), how to end your beadwork and how to add attachments or connector beads if making jewelry.

Question:  I am new to bead weaving. Will you provide pattern support if needed? 


I will try my best to help you along by providing you with tips and video links (see note below). I suggest that you try a free pattern, available on this blog, before making a purchase or for a very low, nearly free price, you can purchase my Learn to Bead Weave Tutorial. Please don't get discouraged. Practice makes beading even more fun! 

If you live on Oahu, I hold monthly beading demos at The Bead Gallery, Honolulu. Please stop by my Facebook Events page for more information.


There are many great videos on YouTube that will show you basic bead weaving stitches. Here are a few of my favorites.
