    Start with this thread

    http://www.powwows.com/gathering/sho...t=gourd+stitch

    Also the Whispering Winds Craft Annual (can't remember the Vol #) is pretty good

    Another thing would be the Full Circle video about bead in gourd/peyote stitch.

    My comments are based on what I have been taught and my experiences over the years I have been around the circle. They should in no way be taken as gospel truths and are merely my opinions or attempts at passing on what I have learned while still learning more.

      The Full Circle video is excellent. It really helped me. The hardest part is starting the first row and designing your pattern. I made my own template to color in designs, if you want a copy I can email it to you.

        I have to reccommend the Full Circle video as well. It does a nice job of showing the technique and giving ideas as well. The one thing it doesn't cover (I don't think) is expanding the beadwork, like on a fan handle. Hope this helps.

            Let me recommend you check out my book "Beading in the Native American Tradition." I think I have done good job of explaining this stitch in this book.

              LMAO...your shameless David

              All things aside his book is excellent.

              Though I do have to dissagree with your statement about the total # of beads to encompass the piece needing to be divisible by 6 in the 3 bead gourd stitch section. Six is a preferred number to work with due to the large # of designs that can be created but as long as the # is divisible by 3 (which of course is manditory) and the total of the third that is pulled off isn't a prime #, there are still many designs that can be put into a piece.

              Other than that your book is kick!

                I agree with you about the number of designs that can be done with a number divisible by 6 or 3 however remember that in a book of this design it must be understandable to the masses. I always prefer to do beadwork bases around the number six. The spacing of the beads around the object will at times dictate the number of beads one works with. Hope the book gets folks to doing beadwork......that is goal. Details on how any particular stitch maybe excuted can be debated by anyone picking up a needle. I am sure there are a number of technical aspects in this book that could be debated on all fronts. The major ideal is to spur folks into action GET SOMETHING BEADED!!!!

                      Beginner gourd stitch question
                      by Mezzobean
                      Another question from a newcomer to beading:

                      I am totally captivated with the gourd stitch work I have seen on fan handles and such, and think it is what I want most to learn now.

                      I have some books which describe (with good photos & drawings) the actual stitches, but...

                      Computers and beading
                      by TKMJ Productions
                      Has anyone here ever use a computer to design their bead work? I started doing it about 2 years ago and I find it helps me place beads in the proper place on the line. I have found that I make less mistakes and therefor made my work go faster.

                      I'm not letting the computer design the work....

                      by comanche-woman
                      Im now on page 10 in the archives. lol But after reading and reading. I've come to learn after reading all these pages that some are saying that there is a difference between Gourd stitch and Peyote stitch. Can someone tell me about this and point me in the right direction on seeing the difference ...
