"Where beading artists meet to show and tell."
Hi Maria Lee,
I have a subscription on Beadwork and I certainly buy books of great beaders, f.e Sensational Embroidery Beading.
In those books, I find usefull information for my embroidery, because each step of all stitches is explained in detail and there are examples, very easy
I'm into wire wrap and learned how to make a 3 wire frame for a cab. Everything else I've learned mostly by trial and error. I picked up a few books and mags and perfected some of my techniques. I find a lot of inspiration online by looking at what others have done. But, I find that a lot of my ideas go beyond the basics, and a lot of the information out there doesn't get into the more intricate moves. So I guess I'm on my own, and that is not a bad thing, since I find things similar to what I have already done. I must be doing OK.
I love Bead & Button mageazine. I also get Beadwork magazine from time to time.
