    If I ever do a book, it will be patterns for those peyote stitched "amulet" bags. I got two or three patterns I have done right now, but I got to bead them up before I can do anything with them. Besides those books sell really good! I buy them myself often LOL. As for instructional, I really don't need to, cause there are so many good ones out there. And for beginners, that sadie starr book is one of the best (and more expensive but worth it).

    Sorry David, I still need to buy yours so don't take it that I am downplaying yours, just have'nt seen it yet ok?

    LOL LOL >>>STOP lol I have bought all the books Black Bear has suggested ...Looks at her birthday stocking...hmmmmm dont see any BlackBear stuff in it yet lmao ...I love to bead an since I came to this site , I have to say I would never have tried applique beading if it were not for the thread Black Bear did , now I cant stop .....
    I suggest that new ppl to this site read the achives man oh man is there some stuff in there .

    I will need treatment soon for beading illness lol ...Hope there is no cure tho...

    Happy beading . I still am looking for that one beading book to put on the list that is just all that an a bag of chips .. Davids book was great the pictures were beautiful .. But still for those just starting some just need a book that will take them by the hand so to speak an step by step .. IE like black bear did in her thread ... Now I say Black Bear you should make your own book on a variety of the things you do . You are so clear in the instructions an that is what some ppl like me need just show us lol ...Then we can do it ... I am still not able to peyote but heck ...we cant have it all...


    Peace happy holidays to all!

    Actually, the two books that were most beneficial to me were by Horace Goodhue (only one book, look it up by author) and the first book by Sadie Starr. Great diagrams in the Sadie starr book and drawn well enough in the Horace Goodhue one.

    One more book by a former instructor at The Institute of American Indian Arte in Santa Fe, NM (IAIA) is

    The Complete Guide to Traditional Native American Beadwork : A Definitive Study of Authentic Tools, Materials, Techniques, and Styles
    by Joel Monture (Author)


    The George Barth book is a bit closer on sidestitch/diagonal weave although when I learned it from the HoChunk it is done from left to right. When George watched me demonstrate he saw a double technique that started in the middle. Then he wrote up his instructions going from right to left.

    nabeader hit it right on the head. Hi David, know who this is?

    Both the Dean and Barth books are great for starters. But no source will ever be totally inclusive of everything. I'm too poor to own a copy of Beading in the NA Tradish but I seem to remember a little discrepency in the explanation of sidestitch and the illustration. No? It's still a good resource. And the pics aren't half bad either, eh! Everyone go out and buy it......



    Then give it to me for X-mas!

    Dear Folks,,,,,,,,,,Thanks for your kind thoughts. As the writter of "Beading In The Native American Tradition" it is always good to be recognized. Another book that many consider like a bible is Native American Beadwork by George Barth. Check it out it has some good points. Realize that no one has all the answers and sometimes it takes a number of sources to realize how something is really put together

    Dear Folks........Thanks for putting "Beading In the Native American Tradition" in such high esteem. As the writer of this work it is always good to get a pat on the back. Another book that is often put into this group is "Native Beadwork" by George Barth. Check it out he makes some good points.

    Only one I believe I would call the beading bible is "Beading in the Native American Tradition".

    here is a link that people are talking about it..

    Never heard of a beading "bible" I don't think there are any books that cover everything about every style of beadwork in great detail.

    Maybe they're talking about "The Golden Book of Indian Crafts" by W.Ben Hunt!:Chatter :Chatter :Chatter

    Has anyone around here ever made a beadwork sampler? I am thinking about doing something like that to try out new designs.

    If you have young children you should be aware of this >>>>
    by Annie Fawn
    For some reason most doctors do not know this, I found out the hard way. IF your child runs a high fever or is on antibotics for a length of time you should let your childs dentist know immediately! High fevers and antibotics can damage a childs teeth, especially if they still have their baby teeth...
