Square Stitch

Square stitch is an off-loom bead weaving stitch that mimics the appearance of beadwork created on a loom. Loom patterns may be used for square stitch pieces. Because each bead in a square stitch piece is connected by thread to each of the four beads surrounding it, this stitch is very strong.

Famous quotes containing the words stitch and/or square:

    Oh demon within,
    I am afraid and seldom put my hand up
    to my mouth and stitch it up
    covering you, smothering you
    from the public voyeury eyes
    of my typewriter keys.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    If magistrates had true justice, and if physicians had the true art of healing, they would have no occasion for square caps; the majesty of these sciences would of itself be venerable enough. But having only imaginary knowledge, they must employ those silly tools that strike the imagination with which they have to deal; and thereby, in fact, they inspire respect.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
