I've been experimenting with beads since I was 10 yrs old or so; self-taught; started out with a wire loom kit.  Most of my work is done with off-loom stitches.  I'm impressed with the latest in loom work techniques and may return to looming at a later date.  I love seed beads; there's so much you can do with them.   I created (developed) 90 Degree Off-Loom Stitch (c) November 1997 --sjm.
