Of course, I am very happy and overwhelmed to have 'Placed', 1st & 2nd,
with my two entries:
1st PLACE, BEAD LOOMING
Tied, 2nd PLACE, BEAD LOOMING
'Perlen Poesie', (A Popular Beading Magazine, Published in Germany), has made a wonderful decision to include 'Bead Looming' as a separate category, in their First Annual Beading Contest! I was so happy to see this listing and it was a given, for me, to enter! My hopes are to expose more, of this beading technique. Whether it be in 'beading contest categories', 'the subject of bead weaving articles', 'included as a subscriber's bead work, in bead magazines', 'on the cover of publications', 'a focused web site', or 'huddling Groups of Bead Loomers, on FB, (which is going on now..read my side bar notes)!
I realize the lack of interest may be due to the lack of means to 'manage the warps'. My methods, devised over my many years of looming beads, are the absolute best and finest techniques to make those warps disappear. Of course there have been other new techniques too, which can also be considered. However, I feel so strong about my means of warp management that I am presently working on a venue to share it with everyone, making the first part of the year 2012 the year of "Bringing Bead Looming To The Forefront Of Beading Techniques!" Waiting for a decision to publish a book and being told, "It is all about timing", is not my mode any more!
