I shared the tips and tricks I use with beading. I explained how to hold the beadwork as you bead. I see so many beaders trying to twist their hand as they as they add the next bead. I demonstrated how to turn the beadwork in your hand to add the next bead. I also demonstrated how to pull your thread for better tension. Some one needed help seeing how bead crochet worked. I explained about the position of the beads being in horizontal position when you pass the crochet hook under the bead. I demonstrated doing a slip stitch and the bead turning in a vertical position.
I had a great time sharing my bead knowledge. I was so happy talking about beads for 3 days!
