Reviewer: Stephanie B.

This is a very good video. Easy to follow. Great close up shots. Lots of really good tips too.

Reviewer: Brent L.

The camera is zoomed in on the work the whole time so you really get a good picture of how to do the stitch. She gives easy to follow instructions throughout.

Reviewer: CAROL F.

This is a very good CD if you know nothing about beadweaving with peyote stitch. Patterns for projects are included with the DVD. It gave me the confidence to start making things using peyote stitch. I did not do the project which is what you should do while watching the DVD. Maybe next time. Happy beading.

Reviewer: Liz S.

Answered some of my questions but, I felt it was too expensive for what I got out of it.

Reviewer: Gladys R.

I like the Beadweaving DVD very much. Herringbone is a pattern I struggled with for a long time but the instructor made it very clear and easy for me to follow. I would recommend this DVD to anyone struggling to learn this stitch. Gladys

Reviewer: Allan F.

This DVD on bead weaving was interesting but I thought it out of place in a jewelry making series. I am interested in metalwork, so although interesting this was useless to reaching my own goals for learning jewelry.

Reviewer: Carroll R.

This was a great DVD...Well organized and loaded with a lot of information even for a beginner. A must see for anyone interested in beadweaving...C Rogers
