Review 1 for The Beader's Companion
a great help
Date:January 16, 2007
"Im a beginner, and when i saw all the different types of beads, stones, and sizes, I was extremely overwhelmed. This book explains it all, including bead types, yarn to use, size charts, equipment, loom and stringing techniques, crochet and kniting beads techniques and a lot more. Also included are suggested readings and beader's graph paper models. A great companion to beading regardless of experience."
