Dislocation: Beading

The beading is done. Much frantic hand stitching later and the beads are all on. 

Has anyone ever added beads using the machine? Does it work? 

Now I just have to assemble the thing. It's in 4 pieces - one long hanging strip and three side panels. Getting it to hand square is going to be a challenge! 


  1. 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.

    1. 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!
