Hello from Wendy
Findings and Finishings Beadwork Book
Sewing New Free Projects Crafts Crossword Puzzle


Hello Crafters!

Welcome to the AllCrafts Update, the free newsletter of, the Free Crafts Network.

We've updated the sewing page. All new free projects and great new books. The free projects are listed by category since there are so many of them! Online sewing lessons, home decor, fashion sewing, even serger and embroidery machine projects, too. The new projects are listed below. Plus, after many requests in our message boards, I've listed all the links to juice pouch purses that I can find. Have fun!

By the bye, if anyone knows how to make a floral bouquet from kitchen sponges and pot scrubbers, someone is asking in the forums.

I've been updating and posting to the blog with direct links to the new projects and where I've put it on AllCrafts. Be sure to bookmark the AllCrafts Update Blog today.

Findings &  & Finishings: A Beadwork How-To Book
Findings & Finishings: A Beadwork How-To Book
by Sharon Bateman

The opening chapters give a simple but thorough overview of beads, threads, wires, tools you'll need, and the basics of working with beads and wire.

True to the title, the strength of this book is her chapters on findings and finishings. These ending details can take your bead work from homemade to wow!

The photos and instructions are very comprehensive. This book includes at least 100 different techniques using purchased findings and ones you make yourself. All types of findings are covered:

  • Head and Eye Pins
  • Spacing Bars and Connectors
  • Terminals
  • Spacers
  • Crimps
  • Clasps
  • Ear Wires
  • Pins

Many of these ideas are very innovative. I was even more fascinated by the finishings chapters. They included some great ideas for edges, fringes and original beadwork on findings.

The photo gallery will inspire you to branch out from her ideas even more. Highly recommended to take your beadwork to a new level of expertise.
