Q: What type of beads do you use?

A: I use Myuki Delica 11/0 beads. They are made in Japan and are very uniform in size and shape.

Q: Do you weave in all the ends or maybe knot them? (I think that’s sometimes common practice.)

A: I weave in all the ends. It takes time but looks good when it is done.

Q: Where do you get your patterns?

A: There are a few patterns available online. You have to search for them.

Some of my patterns are ones I make from cross stitch patterns I purchase.

Some are patterns I create in a beading program from photographs or non-copyright images on the internet.

Q: Are your patterns available in peyote stitch?

A: Some of the patterns are available in both loom and peyote stitch. Others are just for loom weaving. The pattern description will show which are for loom and which are for loom or peyote.
