Item description for The New! Beader's Companion (Companion series, The) by Judith Durant & Jean Campbell...

Revamped, expanded, and still meticulously thorough, this reference is an essential tool for both experienced and new beadworkers. The original authors, both among the craft's most respected beaders, have revisited and revised the previous edition to bring it up to date with today's bead world. New products, such as stringing materials and synthetic waxes, are discussed, along with time-saving tricks and tips for every aspect of beading. Sections about off-loom stitches, stringing, finishing techniques such as picot edging and branched fringe, and embroidering, knitting, and crocheting with beads all feature updated instructions along with a new section on semiprecious stones. Full of definitions and illustrations, the book's step-by-step instructions, reference charts, and project photos inform and inspire.

Reviews - What do customers think about The New! Beader's Companion (Companion series, The)?

The New! Beader's Companion  May 25, 2008
I have just started using seed beads. This is a great beginner's book to get started. Lots of good pictures and illustrations to help you get started. Love the spiral binding. Easy to set up on the table to use while beading.
Excellent Reference Book  Sep 19, 2007
After having taken a week long course in beading and then returning to the "real world" where I did not get to bead for a few weeks, I found that I could easily pick up this book for a quick review and follow the step by step instructions easily and with excellent results. I also own the same series for knitting and have referred to that for years when I needed a review. I believe that even a beginner with no previous experience would be able to follow the instructions with success. The book covers a good range of techniques with background info on the supplies as well. A definate for any beaders library.
very good reference  Jul 11, 2007
A helpful tool for any beader!
Contains information about bead types, bead sizing, useful materials (needles, waxes threads etc), stitches types, stringing, beads in crochet, knitting, wirework, embroidery and macramé.
Small and simple to use, but I feel that I need to mention that this book is a reference and not to learn how to bead.
I mostly refer to it when I'm creating my own projects (I may have something in mind and I need to find a most effective way to develop it).
I was a little bit disappointed when I searched for peyote stitch- edge increase (not included) but overall the book is great and well presented.
Design of book and contents helpful  May 30, 2007
I am fairly new at beading and found this book to be simple to understand and informative. The top spiral-bound book is easy to read and look up. It is a basic book that explains things clearly.
Beading Reference  Apr 10, 2007
This little book is jam-crammed with info essential to beaders whether beginner or long-time addict! Get it and keep it close for reference!
