In this shop you will find patterns of designs made by me, Cath Thomas, using stitches such as Peyote, Herringbone, RAW, Square Stitch, Diamond Weave and other Stitches and variations or combinations of those techniques & 3-Dimensional shapes. My book Diamond Weave, written in collaboration with Gerlinde Lenz, can be found on Amazon in selected countries, or from the press - CreateSpace, and soon digitally here on Craftsy, I started beading in 2004. Off-loom beadweaving and bead embroidery are my favorite beading techniques. I won 3 times a gold medal in the Fire Mountain Gems and Beads beading contests, two in 2006, of which one Grand Prize Gold Medal and one in 2016. I also won a bronze medal in 2009 and a silver medal in 2010. I've also written in books and magazines - find out more on my blog:
