    I bought Katie’s eBook after attending a class on how to make a French beaded rose. I really enjoyed making the rose and wanted to learn more.
    Katie’s eBook is an inspiration and is completely different to any other beading book I have (and I have quite a few!). It is a mix of written instructions and video tutorials that are suitable for beginners through to advanced beaders.
    The video tutorials are the best; it is like having your own class with Katie! You can go back over and over as many times as you need to get the hang of a technique (I found myself talking to her!). Katie takes you through the construction of your chosen flower in easy steps so you can learn new techniques as you progress.
    My favourite part of this eBook is it is interactive. You do not have to spend time trying to find the tutorial you want. Just go to the index and click on your chosen flower or tutorial and it takes you straight there! Amazing!
    I love this eBook and use it often. I have made many of the beautiful flowers in it and would highly recommend this eBook to anyone wanting to learn about French Beaded flowers.

    This was the first French Beading book I bought. Using the book and with moral support from Katie I made my wedding bouquet never having French Beaded before. The video tutorials embedded in the book are so useful when you are a visual learner like me. I now own many French beading books but this is the one I invariably return to.

    I first saw Katie at a bead fair where she had on display a beaded bouquet which she had made. My daughter said there and then ‘when I get married I want a beaded bouquet’, at the time I was a novice and thought that I would have to contact Katie when the day came that she announced she would be getting married and ask her if she could do this on my behalf. Luckily for me that was 3 years later and I decided that I would purchase the book and have a go. Having only attempted French beading by purchasing both a beginners and intermediate kit from Katie a month previously it was a but daunting., but I did not need to worry at all, as the book is so well written with excellent video tutorials and gorgeous pictures that within no time I was making beautiful flowers and managed to not only make the bridal bouquet, but also 3 bridesmaid’s bouquets, table centrepieces and also the bridal party corsages from Katie’s other book too. Although I say it myself they all looked wonderful and it is all thanks to Katie.
