Herringbone Stitch, presented by Mary Stribling

January 25th, 6:30 p.m., Camp Mabry

Herringbone or Ndebele stich is a very distinctive stitch that places pairs of beads side by side so that they stack at a slight angle. Herringbone is a versatile stitch and can be stitched up flat, tubular, or in a spiral. Embellishment beads can also be added. It is an easy and handy stitch to have in your repertoire.

In this presentation Mary will be showing us how to make a tubular bracelet using bugles and delicas or seed beads. (The bracelet on the left is the one we will be working on.)


Supply List:

3mm bugles (one or more colors)

size 11 delicas or seed beads (monochrome or contrasting color)

beading needle #11 or #12

fireline 6lb

clasp of your choice (we will make a peyote toggle clasp)
