Weaving Long Lengths of Wire

by Sarah Thompson

Today, we have a quick tip about weaving wire together from Sarah Thompson! Get your bobbins ready – this is a good one!

Sarah Says:


  • When weaving long lengths of wire together, weaving around curved wire, or weaving a symmetrical design try weaving from the center out.

This is done by:

  • Taking the full length of weaving wire needed for your project, fold it in half and work from the center of your weaving wire.
  • One half of the weaving wire becomes your tail, the other half is what you are weaving with.


  • When you are done flip your woven form over and weave the rest with the remaining length of wire that was your tail.


  • I love using my kumihimo bobbins for this so the two ends to tangle around each other.

I hope you enjoyed this quick tip from Sarah Thompson! Check back for more great tips or articles from our new contributors!

Happy Wrapping!

    Yes, I’m with LadyM. A short video is worth a thousand words! I especially want to see how she winds the wire onto the kumihimo bobbins and how she uses them in wire weaving! I just bought several of those bobbins for that very purpose. Thanks,, Brenda
