Hi! My name is Heather and I'm new to the beading scene.  I've recently been trying to make seed bead bracelets using 11/0 czech seed beads and Stretch Magic .7mm elastic.  I'm having a difficult time figuring out how to best thread the elastic on a needle.  Can you use Stretch Magic cord with a beading needle?  If so, what kind/size of needle works best and what is the best way to thread the needle?  I probably sound like such a novice but would appreciate any suggestions you could give me!  Thank you so much!!!

I'm afraid this is pretty much a dead forum... and I can't really help you since I've never used stretch thread. Have you tried going to Facebook for help? The beaders from this forum have all gone over there. There are all sorts of beading groups on FB. Also youtube or google might be of help... GL! =o)

Use a "big-eye" needle.  You can't put stretch thread through a regular beading needle and most sewing needles are too big for seed beads.
