Winter 2020 Secret Beadalong Videos & Written Instructions

The 'beading-along-together' part of the Beadalong is now over but this will always be available as a pattern and most people bead it after that time so never worry it's too late to dive in!

If you want a peek at what was made you can visit the Secret Beadalong Facebook page (you don't need an account to view it) or have a look at some photos on my blog here, here, here and here

It's time for another Secret Beadalong... and this year you can see it all being beaded!
All you need to do is read the details below and then sign-up here on the Teachable website (you can even visit there to preview a video and get an example of what they're like) - please note that you will be purchasing this on another website and that is where you will find the download etc.

For the price of £20 there will be 50+ different videos for you to watch including films with all of the essentials techniques, one explaining the requirements list with real beads, each bit of the preparation beadwork and then all of the daily beading. You will also have access to all of the written instructions too.
Each video has full English captions and you can watch them online 24 hours a day and pause, rewind or fast-forward as desired.

It's time for another Secret Beadalong!

As always the finished project is a secret but I can tell you it's both an ornament and a piece of jewellery... and something else...

This year, as always, there are multiple variations and you get to mix-and-match the beads you use to create a piece with as much (or as little) sparkle as you want... stay tuned for more information in the requirements file...

The Winter 2020 Beadalong is designed to be beaded over 24 days (1st-24th December 2020) but as always you can bead it as and when you desire (many people bead them years later so don't worry about not joining in to the 'beading-along-together' part during that time)

Each day will take around 20-90 minutes beading to complete.

When you sign-up to this you'll be added to the update list and then as new items are available over the next few months you'll instantly be informed.

The timetable for the Beadalong is:

  • Now - full requirements list available (along with a video showing the beads and how they go together)
  • Now - all the essential information (tips, terminology & techniques) available (as both written instructions and videos)
  • Now - the full instructions will be available for anyone who wants to dive in early (written instructions & videos)
  • December 2020 - the 'beading-along-together' part starts and daily emails with instructions and more details begin

The project is intermediate upwards (you will need knowledge of Peyote Stitch and be comfortable working with small beads) and has brand new components and design ideas perfect to offer something new to any more advanced beaders.

The full requirements list will be sent out at the end of September but here is a sneak peek at some of the items you may use:

  • 14mm Swarovski Rivolis #1122 (optional)
  • SS39/ 8mm Swarovski Chatons #1088 (optional)
  • 3mm Swarovski Bicones (optional)
  • Size 11 Cylinder beads (e.g. Delicas or Aikos)
  • Size 15 Miyuki seed beads
  • Beading needle and thread of choice
