  • I just started bead weaving a week ago (no kidding) and am totally addicted! This would be a great kit to win, as I need quite a few things to make weaving easier on me. Thanks for the wonderful opportunity!

    I am trying to learn how to use multiple strands and cover the ends with cones! I love the techniques I learn from you!

  • Elaine Kontra

    All i’ve ever done was beading on a loom , i didn’t even know alot these techniques existed and now want to try them all.

  • Marcy

    I love looking at all the ideas on your website. I have been working with tubular peyote, but I also like herringbone. Can’t wait to try some new stitches.

  • Carolyn

    I have been beadweaving for a couple of years now. Peyote has always gotten away for me. Though its the one that I am interested in the most!

  • Karen Wegryn

    I love my loom. I bought a children’s starter loom, plastic and all. I have made so many bracelets nad earrings on that thing! I would love to learn the peyote stitch for those days that I don’t want to string the loom.

  • Carol

    Love bead crochet and just learned Kumihimo. Would love to win this kit

  • Debbie Myers

    I would love to win this wonderful assortment! Hope I win.

  • Crystal

    Peyote stitch earrings are fun to do.

  • Melody

    To be honest i don’t really know where to begin. I have been interested in beads since 2004. I was amazed with how many things that could was possible. The unlimited varieties in color schemes and combinations,but mass selection of beads, gemstones, crystal and hand made beads in infinite number of shapes and sizes. I just started making jewelry after 2 and a half years of not stranding one bead but i did buy many magazines and books. I love 3 dimensional beading. But i still son’t know enough about bead stitches and number of beads needed to pick up at a time to get the desired effect i am trying to achieve.

  • Harriet De Boer

    Love to come to your store, even though it is quite a drive. I always find new ideas, and many things I can’t find at other bead stores. Am retired so money for beads is scarse and this prize would keep me busy. I love making anything in beads for my family.

    I love bead weaving. It’s so therapeutic.

  • Shelby

    I find beadweaving to be one of the most relaxing activities I can do indoors (while it’s 105 outside!)

  • Chrissy

    I really enjoy working in St. Petersburg Chain. I just finished a broach for a friend using this stitch…seed beads stitched around a 27mm crystal round stone w/crystal fringe. She lives in Australia and the broach was for her wedding broach bouquet…that way, even though we can’t physcially be with her, we are there in spirit and broaches! :)

  • terry

    I love anything beads and wire. the possiblilties are endless. i’d love love the giveaway kit

  • Sara V

    I have to go with the classic basic right angle weave. I love all the different patterns you can make with it. I haven’t tried it yet, but would love to try :)

  • Cathleen Miller

    I like Peyote and would love to try freeform peyote

  • Denise Dennis

    I have never tried bead weaving before so I guess if I win I will give it a try. I would like to expand my skills.

  • Reda

    I like beading on a loom best. Time consuming but relaxing.
