Weaving & Self-Care
I began thinking about this a few weeks ago. What in my life do I consider self-care? Is spending time with friends self-care? Netflix binging? Long walks with the dog? Weaving? How do I prioritize these things?
I realized that, for me, self-care is about doing something I love for the sake of doing it. Going for a walk with the dog when I'm busy and it's raining and my ankle is sore doesn't count. Painting my nails at 10:30 at night because I have an important meeting and the chipped-nail look isn't en vogue isn't self care. Weaving because I am writing a tutorial isn't about caring for myself.

Anyone Can Do It: Bead Weaving For Beginners (Live Demo)
The goal of this demonstration is to show how simple weaving beads on a Mirrix Loom can be. This project is perfect for beginners who are feeling intimidated by their loom or aren't sure how to get started.
Why a Mirrix: Variable Sett
Whether you're weaving beads or fiber, the spacing of your warps (sett) is very important. Many looms give you one spacing option that can be modified by warping every other or every two or three notches/dents/pegs. On a Mirrix, you have almost unlimited sett options because of our warp coil system.
Each loom (with a shedding device) comes with four warp coils: 8 dents per inch, 12 dents per inch, 14 dents per inch and 18 dents per inch. Each of these coils can be warped at their intended sett or every other or every two or three dents. That means the 18 dent coil, for example, can be used at 18 dents per inch or 9 dents per inch or 6 dents per inch. We also have additional coils available at 10, 16, 20 and 22 dents per inch.
