I really like Melinda Barta's style of teaching. It is very easy to understand her instructions. So much so, I have purchased both the peyote and the herringbone DVDs. I REALLY hope her next DVD will be for right angle weave. And that she will have at least one project on the DVD that incorporates what she teaches and to help reinforce the great instructions she has given.

Peyote Stitch - Basics and Beyond Review by Cindy McAuley

I thought the video was well done and thorough. I would have liked to see more about some of the jewelry pieces she showed for examples. Specifically the embellishments, using multiple stitches in one piece, how to put it all together into an original design. An idea for another video perhaps?

OMG! Thank you sooooo much... Review by Angel Merritt

I finally understand Peyote stitching. I have been to so many other sites and watched so many others trying to teach this very complicated (to me) stitch, a little uncoordinated I am. I feel so at ease watching Ms Barta....she makes me feel like I can do them all, the stitches I mean. All those others give you the very basics without even explaining to you how to end the projects you work on or how to embellish them. I am so glad I was just looking around and decided to go ahead and get the download....I'm watching it almost everyday because I am so visual at learning and after about the 10th time, LOL I got it and it makes sense. Anything else she does/teaches I'm buying!
