I admittedly know very little about bead stitching. I've made one or two bracelets that were needlework after taking a class at my local bead shop. And that's the extent of my needlework experience, aside from a few ladder-stitched items. So this is my meager list on beadweaving resources. Please let me know if you know of some good resources to add!
