One common question that a lot of new beaders ask is how they can become fluent with different types of bead weaving stitches. Just like with any craft that you try, practice is going to make perfect. But, if you are a new beader that wants to know what you can do to learn different bead weaving stitches, here are just a few things that you can do to get started.
1-Find a few books that go over different bead weaving stitches. There are a lot of books out there that have been written and published by avid beaders. These books can give you an idea of how to create bead weaving stitches that you never imagined you could create.
2- Start small and then expand. The worst thing that you can do if you are a new beader is attempt to take on a large project and fail miserably at it. People who fail at a project or a craft are more likely to give it up than people who are successful at completing a task associated with the craft. When you are starting out you need to remember that you are just starting out. Do not take on complicated projects that you know you will fail at.
3- Practice your beading every single day. There are going to be days when the last thing you want to do is sit down and bead because you are extremely busy. But, the truth is the only way that you are going to get better at beading is by practising. Even if you only have a few minutes out of your day to dedicate to beading, take that time out to practice.
4- Start beading with your friends. Even if your friends are not avid beaders there are a lot of things that you can teach them and they can teach you. Beading with your friends will make you feel comfortable. It will open your eyes to different techniques that you can attempt to employ when creating projects.
