Don't get me wrong. Loomwork has it's place - can't beat it for harnesses and the occasional belt or hatband.:p

But on a buckle???? Please don't!
I agree free hand stitching agrees with me too, loom is passay and forget that I ever used that word. (Loom) I doo all my beading freehand now. Tossed the loom away ever since I started usind the old Hiawatha Belt Stitch known as the wampum or ladder stitch,,,, juck to the loom. On a loom if you get one bead wrong you have to take out the whole row. On the stitch I use you can change just the one bead!!!!! Think how they changed wampum belts in the past, one fight with a neighbour and the belt was changed,, all because of the first original Hiawatha Belt, and it is now being used as the First United Nations Belt by the 5 Nations Conferacy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
