Melinda Barta, senior editor of Beadwork magazine, describes many of the threads available to beaders today.
As a beginner, choosing the right thread turned out to be a much bigger challenge than I'd imagined. I currently live in Taiwan and I don't speak Chinese and the most common brands of thread are not available here - so I have to know what the threads actually look like in order to choose right. Thank you so much for this very helpful video! (which I discovered after trying too many times to push a too large thread not once, but twice through a small bead. I gave up when my latest project actually instructed that I go through the bead three times! I needed help.)
Thanks a million from a brand new bead junky.
