Mon 13.11.2006 08:22 Have wanted to try this for ages. Discovered there's a huge hobby & craft shop in Greenford, so went up there on Sunday and bought a loom and a load of beads. This is as far as I've got so far. Most of the time was taken up with stringing the loom - that's one fiddly job! Then I discovered that the nylon filament was too thick to go through the beads multiple times as required. But once those two issues were sorted out, things started to progress with satisfying speed. This is going to be a simple beaded strip to decorate one of Chris's books. Once I've finished this, and figured out how to weave in the loose thread ends so the whole thing doesn't immediately unravel, I think I might try my hand at off-loom weaving.
