I've just borrowed a book from the library by Kathy King called Bead Quilled Jewelry, which has some very nice projects. In the book the author says she uses nylon thread that comes in a number of sizes OO finest through to G thickest. The thread also comes in quite a few colours. Being completely new to the game I need some idea of what thread she might be talking about. Is it C-lon which is nylon and available in lots of colours and if it is what would be the finest thread available? I'd love to give this method a try, as some of the designs look so interesting but I don't have the money to experiment with various threads and thicknesses.

Any help would be appreciated.

She's probably referring to Nymo. It comes in a variety of sizes (OO,A,B, etc...) and a pretty nice array of colors. I'm not sure about size variations in C-Lon or S-Lon or whatever other colored nylon threads are out there.

I do know that Nymo is pretty much the least expensive nylon thread available.

 

Happy beading!

Thanks Shellie, I'm off to the store tomorrow, public holiday today in Australia. They must have some Nymo in various colours and probably a bead or two to match.

Hi Shellie and Lyn:

I've been looking for a video for bead quilling, but can't find anything. I tried to do the square stitch and my second beads shift over and don't stack straight up. My first two rows work out fine. Do you have any idea how I can fix this problem. I'll try to post a pic of the problem. Thanks.

I figured it out.  I guess I was doing it wrong.
