Hi all, absentee here dropping in to pick your brains. I have lots of beadweaving books but absolutely no stringing ones and I have been asked a question which means I need to find out which if any of the currently available beginnersy stringing books are any good... Anyone have any opinions they'd care to share? Has anyone used Jean Campbell's 'getting started stringing beads' f'r instance? I'm off to Hobbycraft to rummage through their shelves...

I would be interesting in this as its become apparent that 'stringing' beads is what we are good at the farm I volunteer at :)

I don't have any on stringing. Wire work, beadweaving, & jewellery design which are more about silver smithing and contemporary materials. Sorry.

I was after a stringing, knotting type book ages ago but didn't find what I was looking for

Thanks for looking everybody, never mind, I think I have figured out the info I need from a cunning combination of Google Books and Amazon reviews  ;D
