I Broke A Thread On My Loom While Beading

Hello friends! please help me here!:wall: i COULD JUST KICK MYSELF TOO! I made a mistake on my beaded belt and I needed to take the beads out, so i cut it, and accidently I got one of the warp threads (I think thats what you call it). I have beaded 15 inches of this "to be" 30" belt, and smack in the middle i ruined one of the threads.PLEASE HELP ME! SOMEONE!!!!!!!!!!

OHmy oh my oh my...you are in a pickle are'nt you??? i feel for you..
I have'nt done that before, but I think this might work...weave taht cut end back through the beads and tie off inbetween to of the beads and put a tiny drop , using a toothpick of nail polish (clear) on the knot and then put the beads back in order...ok that takes care of that cut warp thread...NOW pay attention...tie another thread on between two beads the same way, and then work the thread through many beads until you come out the end of the last row of beads where the thread was cut...then just let it reach down like it was the original warp thread and tie it off or wrap it off like you did with the other warp threads.
Was this clear enough or would you like me to draw and post a diagram? I would be happy to do that if you like.

I FIXED IT!!!!!!!!!

WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOO! I DID IT!
DANG! I AM SOOOOOOO COOL! :mrcool:

Well here is how I did it. THIS POST IS NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN UNDER 18 , CAUSE I DONT WANT TO GET ANY HEAT ABOUT THIS POST.

......I released some rows of beads, in order to give me some more room to work with since the broken thread was near the end of my work....Then I took a separate piece of thread, one that was not 100% cotton, and tied a loop on the end of the thread, but not a permanant one, just one that is adjustable...If anyone knows about knots perhaps you know what I am talking about.....anyhooooo, I guided the broken piece of thread through this loop and carefully tightened it......then I pushed the now tightened loop further away from the break, sort of flush against the beads.....NOW HERE IS THE DANGEROUS PART............ CHILDREN PLEASE LET YOUR PARENTS DO THIS ONE.....

I put a piece of metal underneath the joined knots , so not to burn or disturb the other threads, then i put the flame of a match or lighter close to the threads...(watch those fingers!)

I didn't put the flame directly on the thread,but close enough to melt the thread...

I melted the broken thread as close as I could to the new thread.....

I was left with a little bump, but who cares! I got them fused together and thats all that matters......Most warping and beading threads are made with polyester so it melts.........

GEEEEEEEZ I DIDN'T THINK MY NOODLE COULD COME UP WITH THAT! I just hope no one burns a finger in the process....
