Book review and giveaway: Stitch Workshop Peyote Stitch

Stitch Workshop: Peyote Stitch: Basic Techniques, Advanced Results 

If you are subscribed to Bead&Button magazine, you've already seen most of these projects, but it's so nice to have them all gathered into one helpful volume.  Stitch Workshop: Peyote Stitch is the newest addition to Kalmbach's excellent teaching books.  All the basics are introduced in the beginning of the book: flat peyote, circular, tubular, two-drop, increasing and decreasing, zipping up, and making bezels.

Then it's on to the projects.  Maybe you are already a lover of peyote stitch.  That's good, because you'll find lots of challenging projects here that will stretch your mastery.  If you are a beginner, don't despair!  There are projects here for you too, shorter in time commitment and a bit less challenging in scope. 


***Free Stuff Alert!!!***

Would you like to have a copy of this book?  Just leave me a comment below and you'll automatically be entered to win.  If you tweet or post on Facebook or other social spots about the contest, you can leave a second comment and be entered twice!

Please make sure that your link will lead me to an email address, or else I won't be able to contact you.  No contact, no win, and I simply have to go on to the next person.  Deadline: April 20, 2011.

Oh I have a special connection to peyote stitch that a good many people probably share -- it was the first bead weaving stitch that I learned and I *loved* it and searched for patterns and thought I'd never have another favorite stitch. Well, *that* changed, but I do still love seeing what I can do with peyote! I'd love a new beading book.
Thanks,
Allie

i didn't think I wanted this book, then took a look at it over on Amazon. I'd love to win this!

Calla said...

Such a simple stitch with such wonderful possibilities. I'm only just starting to explore just how versatile peyote stitch really is (I've been enjoying brick stitch too much to branch out, silly me!)

Cheers for the great review :)

Lody said...
