I've watched over someone's shoulder adding beads by machine, and a friend of mine said how easy she found it, but to me, it looked like I could do it by hand just as fast. I think a lot depends on the size of bead and how densely they are spaced.
It is a bit of useful information. Thank you Sheila.I think Iz, sometimes visits this page, has done a bit of beading on machine I'll hath to direct mail her to see how she did it. I actually don't mind the hand beading I do find it quite therapeutic, but it did take quite a long time and if there was a very big project I wonder if there would be a more efficient way to do it.
I love to receive your comments - so please say hello. I have just been brave and turned the word verification off. Lets hope those spammy gate crashers don't get in!
