A Time To Stitch 6 : Sign Ups October 10-17
A Time To Stitch SIX sign ups are here! WOO HOO!!! Therese and I decided that in Season Six, the participants will use charts to weave their beaded pieces. We will have the reveal on January 10, 2015.
You can choose from any chart out there in BeadWeavingLand ~ picture graph, word, charts that result in 3-dimensional pieces. Use peyote, square, brick, or RAW stitch in your work. Simple rules. The challenge will be in following the chart!
Amy from Amybeads is graciously allowing us to refer you to her picture graph charts. She made most of them for Bead-It-Forward, an annual project that takes 2" x 2" squares and makes them into quilts, shadowboxes, and ornaments then auctions them off. The money raised goes to breast cancer charities. It was started by Jeanette Shannigan and is now run by Amy. If you decide to use Amy's graph charts, please consider donating them to the Bead-It-Forward project. Guidelines for Bead-It-Forward are found here. The theme for 2015 Bead-It-Forward is Animals:Wild about Finding a Cure.
Here are two of Amy's many picture graphs :
In the badge for this hop ~ at the top of this page ~ are examples of word charts and dimensional creations made using charts. Feel free to explore any of the options that work for you, just use a chart :-)
Therese also suggested using Bead Tool 4, a computer program that allows you to make your own charts. That could have some pretty cool end results, so check it out!
When you sign up, Please include your Name, E-Mail, Blog Address.
You can sign up here or over at Therese's Blog.
We are looking forward to this one!!!
