More specifically, I've been trying to learn different methods for manipulating and weaving seed beads. Whether it be loomwork, peyote, brick stitch and now right-angle weaving...I feel like all the methods are translatable to traditional needlework pieces. I'm hoping that knowing the techniques will help me create my own designs to add to my embroideries.
Now for the great news. Jill Wiseman has her own You Tube channel and has invested in hiring a professional videographer to film her tutorials. So lucky us can learn from her FOR FREE and without having to travel to a class. Isn't that grand of her!
Here's her video on how to do Cubic Right Angle Weave...
And here's her video on how to weave and finish a spiral rope.
Can't you see the spiral rope used for edging one of your embroideries?
Her You Tube Channel, Jill Wiseman Designs, has tons of free information, free projects and videos on beadweaving basics from beading surfaces and needles to reading charts.
If you're just beginning, it's a great place to start. You might want to subscribe to her channel so you get updates whenever she uploads a new video. Jill also has a website where she sells bead supplies, patterns and kits.
I'm off to zig zag some more.
Happy bead dreaming everyone.
