  • Adding and Finishing Thread for Bead Looming

Code: ABT-20131101-04

When using a loom, the warp threads are the threads that actually attach to the loom and run up the length of it. The weft threads are the threads that you weave with. If you run out of weft thread, you can tie off what you have and add a new length of thread so that you can continue weaving. This tutorial will show you how to add more weft thread when you run out in the middle of a loomed project. You will also learn how to finish off the ends of the warp and weft threads when the design is complete. We run the needle through the bead with the eye of the needle in front so that the warp threads aren't split with the needle tip.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too).
