Hi all***
September 11, 2019 at 6:08:50 PM
 
My name is Patti. I was born a crafter and that means I have been crafting a veryyyyy long time!! I am a cake artist as well as have a jewelry company since 2005. 
I picked up making jewelry while working in a craft store and having more stress in my life than I ever could imagine. So one day I saw a "well known" home party jewelry line and thought....hmmm I think I can do that. So I have been beading and selling my work ever since. Four years ago my hands started to fail me while making a wedding cake. I started having excrutiating pains in my thumbs. Long story short...surgery...occupational therapy, medications, gels, CBD oil...etc etc etc..so many Dr's later....they cannot do a thing for the pain. So I push through. I started to join different pages on FaceBook and soon found Peyote with a Twist....not Crochet. I am HOOKED and now I've started making my own patterns. The problem is, the program I use cannot help me with IMAGES. It's been very frustrating. So I went on a search for a program that could help ease my frustration. I found Stitchboard...Yayyyyyy. Thank you for adding me to this amazing site. I just know I will love getting to know some fellow crafters. I look forward to your inspiration workings.

Patti,
Welcome! Smile
So glad you found us and that our program works for you! Kiss
PWAT is absolutely amazing. I do enjoy bead crochet, but prefer to work in peyote and the PWAT technique is such a find! LOL, what did we beaders ever do without it? Wink
I'm so sorry to hear about the pain...is it arthritis? Cry
Feel free to post pics of your work anytime! It doesn't matter which craft...beading, cake artistry...we just love to drool! Wink

I'm a beading, knitting and crochet addict.  If that means I'm admitting I have a problem, then I admit to nothing. Please refrain from helping me.

Gloshei,
It's a wonderful alternative for beaders who prefer to use off-loom techniques to doing actual bead crochet.
LOL, you sound like me...as soon as I hear of some new technique, I have to learn it! Laughing
