Thank you for sharing Linda. It is nice to see how your method of beading is done "in person". I'm currently working on another one of flowers that requires beads to be added, so the timing of your post is perfect. Thanks again.

Very nice Linda. Well done. I always have trouble joining back to that original picot. I usually fold the first ring to the left and work on the back. This way is much better. Thanks!

Fantstic video Linda! I learned something new. Thank you for explaining so clearly!

This is the best way to join that final picot I've ever seen -- you demonstrate so well! I've got your written instructions for beading with the needle threader, but seeing you do it really helps set it in mind. Thanks!

Thank you, one and all, for your lovely comments. I am so glad that I have been able to help people with this irksome problem. With the flowers that I make this join is common place so I simply had to come with an acceptable way to do it!

Thank you, Linda! I thought there had to be an easier way, and you have shown me how. It's so nice to put a voice with a face... now I feel like I know you better!

Thank you soo much for showing how to avoid a twisted picot! They have for sure been very irritating to cope with before.

Beautiful tiara you've made.
And a good video.
Thanks,

That's great...I sure wish this video was around when I was teaching myself to tat and add beads and have nontwisted picots...It would have saved me months of frustration of trial and error. That was very nicely explained.

Hi Linda!
I am yet again browsing our wonderful blog!
Thank you for your kind words on my blog :)
I really appreciate that you made this video! You made it very easy for a tatting “new-be” like me to understand and use this method right away!
Best,
Jeannette

Linda,
I just sent you an email and then seen your video. It's funny, I watched it before and didn't realize the instructions applied to this video. Please forgive a newbie tatter. Is there anyway to expand the video for a better view?

Thank you Linda for a wonderful tute on beading and also the bead/join tute. Both are presented perfectly.

I won't worry about twisting the line now.

This is a marvellous video Linda! All I can say is thank you so much because I had never worked with beads but with that needle threader, you made it all so easy. Thanks

Thank you for your help. My mother tried to teach me to tat as a child but she never saw a printed book and had no idea she was "flipping the thread". Your shows have made tatting a joy. Also enjoyed the music, it is relaxing.

Thanks Linda. I too wish I had seen this earlier (but had never thought to look) and have fairly recently figured out to pull the thread behind when doing the last join...I still hold my breath and hope that it wont twist though :D

The method of joining the bead is so simple too, I will try it soon as it would be nice not to pre-plan all of the beads I add. Your way of tatting looks so elegant...I must keep practicing to get as graceful...one day I hope.
