Wondering if anybody has done any tambour beading? If you have, what did you incorporate it into--a dress or a pillow, etc. And is it difficult to learn?

I did some back in college. It's basically chain stitching beads onto a sheer fabric from the back side. It requires a "tambour" hook which is like a very small crocheting hook. I have one "somewhere". It's not hard, it just takes practice. This is definately considered an art form!

There are quite a few demos of tambour beading on youtube. One of the best is here.
