Beads  |  Posted on 13-08-2015

To thread beads on to lurex or thickish yarn - take a fine needle and thread with about 6ins sewing thread.  Knot the two ends together to form a loop.  Take the thread you want to use for the beads and slip the end through the loop for about 6ins.  Thread on a bead and pull onto the beading yarn (if it won't go, then your yarn is too thick).

For seed beads, pour a few on to your hand and pick up from there.  For bigger beads pick up individually.

Beads have a mind of their own!  To prevent escaping, thread over a terry towel on your knee or on a table.
