Bias weaving is time consuming but the result is fabulous, like none other.
    thanks for the tutorial!
    I have her article and it is MUCH better than my little tutorial here. I have a hair streamer in progress right now. It's going pretty well if I'd only get time to work on it.

    Our society is doing charity work this month and I am busy almost every day. I'm counting down the end of the month so I can go back to beading. We earn a lot of money for our charities though and it is worth it.

    I have emailed with Sally and I've encouraged her to write a book. She is gifted at instructions. I am not. But I first learned from my aunt. I was trying to do it again with the directions from books and it was all wrong. The books set it up backwards. Set up this way, you can feed the beads through your fingers and do it faster. Backwards is unnatural.

    Anyway, if you ever pick it up again, starting next month I will pick up the hair tie again and report on the progress. I am making them for my teen daughter. She has already finished the hairwrapper that goes with the set of ties.

    I do love beading this way. I would rather bead weave than do any other sort of beading. I love the results.

        If you make something, I'd love to see it! Once you get the hang of it, it's really easy to do. You'll get in a rhythm.

        I hardly do any other type of beading these days because I enjoy this so much!

        Good luck!

            Hi Renata! Bead weaving in the bias is a dying art. Many choose to sew beads or weave on a loom. Bias weaving is not difficult, but not many try this method. It is slower than other beading because you place one bead in position at a time.

            You can try it in Poland, Renia! Some of the prettiest beads are Czech beads. Probably you can get them easily!

            Hi Renata! Koralik tkania w stronniczość jest sztuka umierania. Wielu wybiera się szyć lub splot koralików na krośnie. Kompensacja tkania nie jest trudne, ale nie wiele spróbować tej metody. Jest mniejsza niż innych, ponieważ perełek umieszczamy kulki w położeniu w czasie.

            Możesz spróbować w Polsce, Renia! Niektóre z najpiękniejszych perełek są czeskie koraliki. Prawdopodobnie można je łatwo!
