Item details

I like plenty of room to spread out my beading project, and a 10x12 beading mat just doesn't do anything for me. Plus I'm cheap, though "frugal" is the term we use in Maine. So when I was asked to give a beading class at the nursing facility I work at, I hunted up some of those special blankets (don't want to get into any Brand name trouble here) on sale. The mats are hand cut with scissors, pretty straight cuts but if you feel self-conscious about a slightly crooked edge, you can always say it was a "factory second". LOL
Care of the material - because sooner or later you'll have to wash it. Wash in cold water, short cycle is usually fine because it sheds dirt easy. Dry on medium heat, doesn't take long, maybe 15 minutes. Do not use fabric softener. I will put it in a plastic bag to ship it, but take it out of the plastic as soon as you get it as it needs to breathe.
I also keep a lint roller on my worktable for quick clean-ups, especially when I have to crush one of those pesky "too small a hole" seed beads on my bead spinner needle.
The picture shows the larger mat with the edge of a smaller mat This time the color is a light green. Mostly I want you to look - the spare bed is clean (mostly, I cropped off the view near the pillows). The only reason it's clean is because we had company for 2 weeks. I wonder how long before it's covered with craft projects again?


Usually I can mail an item out the next business day after you order. But sometimes I work 12 hour shifts or have to work out of town for a week or two.

For once I found the size to accommodate all of my beading "stuff" on one surface. Fantastic! Eventho the piece was folded it became flat in no time. The product was artfully packaged ;) and was in good condition when I received it. Thank you so much.

Additional policies

My philosophy on pricing:
I need to cover the costs of my materials, advertising and fees, and tools. After that, yes, my time is worth something, but I want my items to be inexpensive enough so lots of people can indulge in handcrafted and lots of times, one-of-a-kind items. And I want to afford continuing in my creative pursuits.
Shipping costs just barely - if that - covers the cost of tape, printer ink, envelopes, postage and of course gas to get to the post office. As mentioned elsewhere, if I can combine shipping so it's "more frugal", I will, and reimburse you the overage.
