A Time To Stitch 2

Hi Y'all,

Christine and I had so much fun co-hosting "A Time To Stitch" a few months ago that we decided to do another one.  Same rules as before, we offer two stitches to choose from this time around the stitches are Right Angle Weave and St. Petersburg.  You can choose to do one or both of the stitches.  It is open to first time bead weavers to the advanced bead weavers.  The object is to just have fun.  There is no pressure to complete a project, just post what you have done at the time of the reveal.

Karen Williams of Baublicious blog is letting us use her tutorial for Right Angle Weave click here for the tutorial.

This is an excellent video tutorial on Cubic Right Angle Weave.

This is an excellent video tutorial on the basic St. Petersburg stitch.

There are many tutorials of these stitches on You tube.  Google is a good source to find patterns that use these stitches, Beadwork and Bead & Button websites and magazines are other good sources.   The magazines most of the time have patterns using Right Angle Weave (RAW) or Cubic Right Angle Weave (CRAW).

Christine and I hope that you will come and play along with us in creating or learning with these two versatile stitches.  Sign ups start today Sept. 4 through Sept. 8.  Just leave a comment telling us that you would like to join in and please if your email address is not connected to your blog leave your email address with your comment it is very important that we have a way to get in touch with you.

Happy beading Y'all,


  1. You know you have to count me in this time!

  2. I'm with ya girl! Since learning CRAW, I have become a RAW enthusiast. It took me sooo long to understand it, and now I love using it. Count me in!

  3. Count me in! just posted on Christine's as well - looking forward to another round!

  4. Posted on Christine's blog but I can't play favorites so have to tell you I'm so in. You girls make it fun to play.

  5. Oh, I am totally in. I LOVED the last one, and I wanna play on this one as well!

  6. I would love to try, though I have no experience. It means I'll just play and learn something new ...

  7. Thanks for giving me just the right nudge to look into St. Petersburg stitch - and have fun while I'm learning it! (Signed up over at Christine's.)

  8. I'm in, Therese! I'm looking forward to doing something in St. Petersburg.

  9. Hi! I'm in this time around too! :)

  10. Count me in, Therese!
    A total beginner - I just saw a video for the St. Petersburg stitch and I was thinking I'd like to try it... must be fate!

  11. I would love to play. I have only done St. Petersburg once and just learned cubic righ angle weave.

  12. I'd love to play, Therese. A while ago, I tried to make one of the pendants from Marcia DeCoster's book and it kicked my booty. This is a great way to make myself give it a second try. :)

  13. I'd love to jump in on this! -Am sort of a roap nut, so will have to give CRAW a try ;)

  14. The only weave I know is peyote, and I'm frightened of all the other stitches! So of course, I have to sign up so I can get over my RAW phobia. :)

  15. You guys are awesome! I begged out of the first one, but I love these stitches so I will try again! You all have got me going again! Sign me up!

  16. Have fun with the stitches! I love watching you tube videos for instruction. It is so much easier to learn that way versus reading instructions. :)

  17. I'll be watching for your creations! I'm glad you have really good eyesight :-)

  18. I signed up on Christine's blog but wanted to let you know too. I enjoyed myself with the last blog hop yo and Christine hosted. I am going to enjoy this challenge!!

  19. You can thank my husband! He talked me into dropping a fall show so now I have no excuse to not play along with you two ladies! If I end up bald it will be your fault!!!!

  20. Hi, Therese, are we allowed to show anything before the reveal date?

  21. I delight in, result in I discovered exactly what I used to be taking a look for.

  29. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I
    had to tell someone!
