I received my "Authentic American Indian Beadwork and How to do it" book today. It was a used book and I only paid .89 plus shipping. Total came to less than the price of it would have cost new.
I have to admit I only wanted it to see what colors, designs, stitches etc. were used by various tribes, and I wasn't disappointed. There are tribes mentioned that I never heard of, but that's another research project.
I'm really pleased with this book. It shows methods for applique that I was not aware of and which will make a much neater back than the method I always used for applique. It also has bead charts for loom weaving which can be done in square stitch.
