Susan asks…

Any idea where to get beading patterns?

I’m specifically looking for beading brick stitch patterns. I would like to do more Christmas themed ones and I am having a hard time finding them.

BeadGal answers:

In looking at these patterns, it seems that most of them could be drawn on graph paper. Obviously you’re creative! Can you create your own pattern using graph paper and colored pencils? It will probably take some practice, but the results will be exclusively your own!

Mary asks…

What kind of material is best for bead peyote stitch?

In photos of some beading magazines I saw that people are using some kind of thread for bead peyote patterns. What do people use for making peyote stitches? Is it just plain thread or some kind of special?

I was wondering if I could use something different, is it possible make peyote stitches with fishing line?

BeadGal answers:

What you are seeing is beading thread. There are numerous brands on the market. – Nymo, C-lon, s-lon. They were probably using a size D thread with a size 12 or 13 needle. Most beading threads are made of synthetic yarns. You should wax them though. Another kind of “thread” to use is Fireline – personally I like this the best. It’s actually fishing line, but it doesn’t fray the same as thread. I usually use a 6 or 8 lb test strength.

Ruth asks…

Does anyone have a good Website where I can find beading patterns for peyote stitch?

BeadGal answers:

Try You can search the patterns by stitch type. They have tons of patterns with some patterns free. When you purchase patterns, they have a pay and print option for most of them, so you don’t have to wait to get your pattern in the mail!
