Beadpoint is the technique of stitching a needlepoint canvas entirely in beads.
There have been a few books on the technique (one reviewed here) but it can still be confusing to many stitchers.
I found a simply fantastic video on YouTube on beadpoint. In it you’ll learn:
- which bead to use on which type of canvas
- what type of needle and thread to use
- what kinds of patterns to use
- how to stitch on beads (in a great animated sequence
And there are lovely examples of canvas worked entirely in beadpoint.
Done by a bead shop, this little video has more information clearly presented than just about anywhere.
If you need to know about adding beads to a canvas or if you are thinking about stitching a canvas entirely in beads, you’ll love this video!
