Beadweaving by Dottie Hoeschen of Stonebrash Creative Arts

If you would like to learn how to weave beads from an expert then I thought you might all like to know that Dottie Hoeschen of Stonebrash Creative Arts has created 6 marvelous FREE tutorials on six different kinds of beadweave stitches.

Peyote Stitch This is the most used, most versatile, and usually the first stitch that is taught to the new beadweaver. CLICK HERE for tutorial.




Brick Stitch When finished, this stitch looks just like peyote stitch...turned on its side. I learned brick stitch first (after getting frustrated with peyote). After I learned brick I went back and learned peyote. CLICK HERE for tutorial.





Square Stitch A very strong stitch because you go through the beads so many times! Hard to cut apart for the same reason. CLICK HERE for tutorial.




Herringbone Stitch Called this because of the pattern the beads make. It's one of my favorites because you get to put two beads on at a time (and so it goes twice as fast). CLICK HERE for tutorial.






Chevron Chain
CLICK HERE for tutorial.







Right Angle Weave
RAW seems to drive some people crazy, but to me it came easily. It seems a logical stitch. Go figure....... CLICK HERE for tutorial.
