How to start a new thread when weaving beads

How to start and end your threads when you run out when weaving with beads on a Mirrix Loom:


When you’ve started to run out of thread, sew halfway back through the row before the one you just wove.


Tie a knot around one of your middle warp threads.


This knot will get hidden between the beads.


Then, weave that thread tail back through another few rows before trimming the end and making sure that end is hidden between the beads.


The thread has disappeared!


Start a new thread the same way. Sew through (making sure to sew starting from the correct direction so your new thread eventually ends up starting on the correct side for you to begin your new row. Tie a knot in the middle of a row that is already there and sew back up a few rows until you’re ready to begin your new row.


The new thread started!
