Loomwork: Finishing

BASICS_LOOM_finish1
Figure 1
To remove the beadwork from the loom, carefully cut the warp threads as close to the screw or hook as possible.

Starting with the end warp on the right side, thread a needle, and sew through the first bead in the end row. Sew through the bead below it, the first bead again, and the next bead in the row. Repeat, moving down the end row. At the end of the row, sew into the beadwork, and end the thread (Figure 1).

For the next warp, sew over and under the weft threads of the first two rows, then sew through a bead in row 2. Work as in step 2 to secure and end the thread. Repeat with the remaining warp threads, moving away from the end row as you end each thread (Figure 2)

Repeat on the other end with the remaining warp threads, making sure to maintain even tension throughout the strip of loomwork. If you pull too hard, the beads will bunch up.
