    My fave weaving stitch is the anemone bracelet stitch I learned at Fusion’s old store! Love all the inspiration I get from everyone at Fusion!

  • Karen Purvis

    It is really hard to choose. They are all so beautiful. I think it would be a toss up between peyote and right angle weave although I enjoy them all. Either way, the bracelet is absolutely gorgeous. Good luck to whomever wins and a big THANK YOU to fusionbeads for this blog.

  • Nicole Morrow

    I really like the peyote stitch the best!

  • Joan

    How can you pick just one stitch? I love all of them I’ve tried.

  • Shannon Cross

    I love doing the peyote Stitch…But i love them all! So much fun beading is!

  • Megan Sullivan

    I feel the need… The need to BEAD!! I’d say my favorite stitch is whatever one I am learning next!

  • Janice Bongiorno

    Hmmm. Eeeny, meeny, miney, mo! Which stitch to choose.

    Square Stitch. Maybe right angle weave, or peyote, or St. Petersburg, or Brick, or…….

  • kim wiland

    how do you chose….but if i have to it would be peyote!

  • Melody Martin

    My favorite bead-weaving stitch is netting. It’s so versatile…tiny and delicate to chunky and gorgeous.

  • Bead weaving is the next thing I want to learn to do…so I can’t pick a favorite yet! This giveaway would certainly get me started in the right direction.

  • I love doing kimihumo but would love to try some of these stiches!!

  • Turtleknits

    I like peyote stitch, but I haven’t tried as many as some of you have.

  • Sarah Uden

    I just started learning the right angle weave, and I like it so far. I hope to learn more bead weaving techniques soon.

  • I’ve just started weaving and have tried only the even count peyote. So far, so good.

  • Valarie

    I like the net stitch I would love to learn the peyote and the brick stitch and the other stitches as well I don’t know how to do any of the stitches but I really like the net stitch and the stitches used in making Tila bracelets. There is so much I want to learn and I would totally love to learn to do the bracelet featured on the cover of the magazine that is one beautiful bracelet I love flowers and Spring time so this would be my most favorite stitch to do because of the colors and creativity used. I never seen anything like this but of course Tilas seem to add something more to a piece.

  • Pam B

    I can do so much with Peyote.

  • Mel

    Wow! Great give-away. I really liked this project as soon as I received my magazine. And getting the project stuff free … Can’t get better than that!

  • Back and forth between Peyote and Herringbone….but all the others are near-favorites!!

  • Tracey Levandoski

    My favorite stitch is peyote. I love the way the beads just pop into place.

  • Oooh, my current favorite is Faux-RAW. I like the look of RAW, but not always the stitching, so I use a technique that gives me the same look, but allows me to break the rules. :)

  • Linda

    Oh—I would so love the materials to make this awesome bracelet….my favortie beading stitch is peyote….thanks for the chance to win….

  • Vickie Graham

    Peyote stitch is definitely my favorite stitch. I love the simplicity of the stitch which allows me to focus on following intricate patterns and free form possibilities.

  • Lori

    Call me old-fashioned, but it’s gotta be peyote.

  • Brigitte Walsh

    Peyote stitch is my favorite, and the one I am most comfortable doing.

  • I really like RAW because it goes so well with Swarovski crystals!

  • Tricia

    I love peyote with larger square beads!

  • Anna K.

    I love to use Brick stitch, as it is simple and gives beautiful results.

  • Jenny

    I love even-count peyote.

  • Anything spiral for me, dutch spiral, russian spiral, spiral rope, double, triple, herringbone, cellini, whatever. I love those winding ropes.

  • Julie Delaney

    My favorite stitch is the flat spiral. This issue of Beadwork was the first one I ever purchased and I bought it because I loved the pattern on the front cover, so unique and I love flowers.

  • Debbi M

    i do not have a favourite bead weaving stitch yet as i am just starting out. the extent of my beading is making necklaces with stones. trying to take as many courses as i can find and watching tutorials.

  • Lisa V

    Love RAW, so many posibilities.

  • Sylvie Dufour

    I love all of the stitches but my love for R.A.W. it’s the one i love the most,whe could make so many Design’s whit the right angle weave it’s amazing.

  • Wayne Young

    I don’t make jewelry, but my wife does. She likes the right angle weave the best. I want to win this for her.

  • Jonalyn Young

    My favorite is the right angle weave. But I love learning more and different weaving stitches.

  • Vanessa

    Very hard to choose just one but the chevron stitch rates high on my list.

  • Louise

    I like both peyote and right angle weave. I would like to win the bracelet materials and then I don’t need to order them!

  • the brick stitch and peyote and i really love the braclet on the magazine congrats to who made it

  • marowl

    my favorite is still peyote, with herringbone running a close second. so versatile, and variable. looking forward to peyote with tila beads!

  • Crystal Thain

    I like odd count peyote – it’s great for bracelets.
    The Window Garden bracelet it beautiful.


  • I have recently learned the right angle stitch and it was difficult. Peyote stitch with alternating rows of different size beads is my favorite. It looks sophisticated yet is simple to do.

  • Lynn

    My favorite is peyote. I love the way the beads click together, like legos!

  • Lynell

    Wow, what an awesome giveaway! My favorite stitch would have to be peyote because I love to design with it. However, for necklaces I love herringbone and working a St.Petersburg variation with Tila beads. But then I also love any of the spirals. Oh yes, netting stitch embellished with Bicones. I have only been beading for about a year, so I still have much to learn.

  • Christine Potter

    I love RAW. Also peyote. Also Brick. Ect…

  • Cindy

    I think my favorite would be Herringbone…followed by peyote

  • Dion

    I have been able to incorporate heirloom glass foil beads onto a necklace using the beaded spiral rope stitch. I originally learned it at a workshop at my local bead shop, but then re-learned it using an on-line guide. It looks great AND is easy to do.

  • Victoria Lane

    I think it is hard to choose between my 2 favorite, Right Angle Weave and Peyote. But I’ll go with Right Angle Weave, so many beautiful crystal projects seem to come out of RAW designs.

  • Heather

    I love using all stitches, finding and creating variations to make interesting designs.

  • lynne

    I always find myself doing spiral stitch when I get stressed out. I can feel a calm feeling as soon as I pick up the needle
