Hand Beading on Fabric with Bugle Beads and Single Stitch

Duration: 12:10

Heather Thomas teaches you how to hand bead so you can add even more extravagance to your quilt. It is very simple to learn and she teaches you using only five basic stitches. The different types you will learn is the bugle stitch that uses bugle beads, the stack stitch using multiple fancy beads, a single stitch, a back stitch to fill something with beads, and a stacking stitch.

    I enjoyed this video. I love the idea of dimensional art work on the fabric. I will definitely use this information in the future.
    Thank you so much for sharing. Great job

    Did i miss the part of what needle you use? I have had such a hard time finding a needle to go thru the seed beads….

      Dear Karen,

      Thank you for your patience, here is the response.


      There are actual ‘beading needles’ that you will want to use for this. They are specifically designed to be very thin and sharp to easily go through the beads.

    I loved your video! I appreciate being shown these beading embroidery stitches together. By far the best instruction video I’ve seen in all of my search today (3-hours). This is exactly what I needed! I like to sew and I love to bead. Thanks to you, I’ll enjoy using the two together!
