How many did you want of each color? I have colors not posted on Ebay too........my own stash. But if you only wanted say 50 or 100 of a color I could use them from my stash. I can email you a list of colors. Email me at fyremonksgal@msn.com if you want it. Once I know how many you want of each color then I could know a weight and then can figure about what shipping would be.

Hi Bonnie, I just had a look at your ebay store. Do you sell many colours in smaller bead bags. I was thinking about buying a range of colours as a starter set for my daughter, as her birthday present. I thought that maybe 10 or 15 colours and also a mix bag of the glow in the dark ones would be a good start.Would this be something you could put together? Any idea of a price to Wauchope, New South Wales, Australia, 2446? Also do you sell the pony bead chart? How many colours are there in the range? I am planning to get the whole range for my daughter, as the budget allows...

Oh I guess I forgot to answer about the thread. Thanks for the reminder, Barbi! I use Coats and Clark heavy thread and I've made some pretty large banners and it has held up fine. I get it with the regular thread at Joann Fabrics and sometimes at Walmart. If you go to my Ebay store and check out the thread I sell there is a picture of the end of the spool so you can see exactly which one it is.

i use waxed dental floss for mine and if it is a large banner i use double strands just for extra strength it works fantasticly

Hello Amanda,

I got an email with your message to all of us but can't find it here so am posting on the wall.

Your message was: "My daughter is hoping to order some pony beads soon, as she would like to start making banners/panels from the loom patterns that she has designed on my BCP program. My daughter Adeania is turning 10 next month and she works in the BCP program as much as I do, as I have the program on my laptop and she uses it on the desk top. As I only work with Delica beads, I have no knowledge of pony beads. I would love some information on thread used, any hints and tips when working with pony beads etc. All of her patterns are loom design. I was thinking that square stitch would be the easiest stitch to teach her at first. Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated."

That is GREAT that your 10-yr-old daughter is working with BCP and beading. If you check out my website www.bannersbybonnie.com you will see that all I use is pony beads (in fact have a sale on them in my Ebay store right now). However, I have not yet used my loom and the only stitch I use is peyote stitch for making the banners. So except for what is on my website (which does include my instructions for making banners) I'm not sure how much help I could be.

Maybe others on here have done more with pony beads and could help.

Post pictures of her work once she completes something!!! Thanks for writing.

Bonnie

Oh wow, what a great idea on both the purses & the lighter covers. I have seen the covers done in the delicas & such and always thought they were great but I can't work with them due to my eyesight & nerves. You are very talented & I salute you on both concepts.

Wow.....those are cool! What thread do you use so they are durable and don't break? That is an awesome idea!
