Tips for using Mill Hill beads
- Woven Fabric: use a 28 count Linen works very well, but you can pretty much uses anything you would like to use, like colored and patterned fabric.
- Beading Needles: Use size 12 beading needles, unless you are working with teeny tiny beads.
- Thread: Use what you have since the thread is not (usually) an integral part of the design, there is no need to purchase separate embroidery floss, unless you just want to.
- Backing Paper: the type used for backing machine embroidery works very well for bead embroidery.
