TYPES OF STITCHES
Lazy Stitch Also known as lane stitching, the lazy stitch is a single-thread technique that results in the appearance of “rows” or “lanes.” The needle is loaded with multiple beads at once, which are then slid down the entire length of string or thread.
Overlay Stitch The overlay or appliqué stitch uses two needles—one single threaded and one double threaded. Beads are added to the doubled thread and held in a pattern by the single thread.
Loomed Beadwork A form of single-needle beadwork, the loom technique uses a warp thread and a weft thread just like textile weaving. Beads are secured on the weft threads to create intricate patterns.
