Pick up spilled beads

An adhesive lint roller is perfect for picking up stray beads. Just roll it over the surface where the beads fell, tear the sheet from the roll, and remove the beads from the tape.
Herringbone by another name PDF  | Print |  E-mail

Ndebele and Herringbone are the same stitch. The stitch originated with the Ndebele (pronounced N-da-belly) tribe in South Africa - hence the name. However, once the stitch made it's way to America people saw how the design was similar to a cloth weave called herringbone. The word herringbone was easier to pronounce than ndebele so the name stuck. In the beading world using either name is fine.
