Brick stitch is an ancient stitch, used by Egyptians as well as native Americans. It uses quite a different thread path than Peyote, attaching using loops of thread between the beads.
To learn with Emily:

  2. Download Episode Notes: An active button will be available Monday, 8.21.17 about noon PT.
  3. Purchase Seed Bead School Inna Kit. Make along with the beads, thread, and needles Emily uses in the broadcast.
  4. Once you know the stitch, save your sample and then jump into doing a project in your favorite colors. Be sure to save your stitch samplers. Just tuck them away in your bead stash. You’ll be glad you did!
