Please enjoy the wonderful, idea-filled Basics sections from both volumes, with our love and compliments.
Along with Kate’s accompanying free video, you can learn all of our basic techniques and innovative threadpaths – and then you will be more than ready to plunder our two paper books, which we think of as Explorer’s Guides. Find them here!

Fantastic!! I want to learn “warped square stitching” so badly. Thank you for a free pattern and sharing ❤
Ich Danke ihnen für die Youtube Anleitungen sie machen wunder schöne Armbänder, da ich eine Anfängerin bin verstehe ich leider das ganze nicht, deshalb wollte ich sie fragen ob sie nicht eine Schritt für Schritt Anleitung in youtube machen könnten von einem Rick-Rack Armband?
Wäre super, liebe Grüsse Andrea
Please see the MRAW Zigged Band and also the PodCast tutorials for ways to make Rick-Rack bangles!
I have your 2 CGB books, and looking forward to the Kaleidocycle and variations!
I just found you a few days ago, and have spent every spare minute reading your website tutorials, and going back through the blog – I am fascinated by your work! Just made my first little hypar (so cute!), and will continue on from there. Already thinking about how well this style might work with bead crochet…
That’s fantastic, Dana, I can’t wait to show you all of the new work I am finishing up right now.
Peyote stitch has always been my favorite stitch. Square stitch is my second favorite. I am going to try my hand at this and keep you posted. I have beaded patterns from Margie Deeds book “Beading Her Image”, and we will see how this goes. Thank you so much for sharing your open mind and all of your questions, that open our minds to have more question. You are a genius and beading.
