Hi Nan, I haven't ever come across any directions for sacred peyote and I didn't hear about sacred peyote until I purchased BCP. I'm sorry I can't help. I would love to know if it exists and how to do it. :)

I've been beading for about 5 years now and just got the BCP6. Looking forward to working up my own designs with more precision. With that said, I notice that the choice of stitches includes "Sacred Peyote". I do quite a bit of Peyote stitch work including the 2,3,4 drop methods...but I have never done the Sacred Peyote stitch. How does one do that and has anyone found any tutorials or graphics on it? I love the way it looks...but I haven't a clue what it's "process" is. Thanks, in advance!

when you are setting your parameters after finishing the pattern, just choose a smaller font and also eliminate the first two (the DB) digits of the mfg. number. I can get my patterns down to way less than bedsheets by doing those both. Donna

Does anyone know how to make the PDF graphed image print out smaller?

Thank you Ladygem, I'm glad to hear at some point it's simple!

Jessie, do you have a scanner? If so scan your colored picture from your clip art book and then just put the picture into a new project in BCP. I tried some black and white line art pics and my scanner got truly messed up attempting to "translate" those black lines. I made a copy of the line art and colored them in with solid blocks of color and it worked a lot better. Donna

Hi LL, I would suggest taking the tutorials, they are pretty good to start out with. The program seems intimidating, but once you get the basics, it is really pretty simple. When you use the wizard you can pull your photos into the program and work them from there. I hope that helps.

Hello, I'm from upstate New York and became acquainted with BeadCreator 5 through a magazine ad. I've upgraded to 6 and am a bit intimidated by the program. I've beaded for 3 years and am now doing dimensional work, such as purses, ornaments and spheres. Please suggest a path for me learn the basics without getting overwhelmed. My goal is to use my own photos to create small flat illustrated framed art.

Thanks! LL (also known as Leslie)

yep you are correct, I paid $75.00 extra for the pro plus version. I have designed from the pictures, but I put the picture thru photo shop first.
