  1. Vivienne

    I’ve been fascinated by French beaded flowers for some time and had bought books and tried making beaded flowers but found following written instructions and photos not quite as easy as I had expected. Thought I’d try Katie’s book. Katie’s e-book contains easy to follow instructions as well as videos and I finally get it! The combination of Katie talking through a technique and seeing it at the same time is almost as good as having Katie in the room.

    I’m now half way through making a bouquet for a friend’s wedding! – AB on

  2. Vivienne

    Katie’s ebook is absolutely essential for anyone wanting to make French beaded flowers. She covers all the basics very well and the tutorial videos mean Katie is on hand to demonstrate as often as you need.

    The patterns are easy to follow and result in a beautiful selection of popular flowers and leaves suitable for use not just in wedding bouquets but also corsages or any other display you care to imagine.

    I’ve got other books on French Beading techniques but what really sets this one apart is not only the inspired inclusion of video clips but the fact that it goes far beyond just how to make a single flower. Katie starts by giving you a history of bouquets, the various common styles and the meanings of the flowers in them. Once you have learned the basic techniques and made the individual flowers she goes on to show you how to finish the stems neatly and how to design and assemble your flowers into a beautiful bouquet.

    This is the book I’ve been waiting for. My collection of flowers is now growing fast and I’ll definitely be following Katie’s instructions as I come to construct my own wedding bouquets and button holes from them over the next few months. – BP on

    I am honored and glad to give a review because I love this aesthetic and challenging eBook.

    This book’s aim, as written in the introduction of the book, is to give an understanding of how to use French beading techniques, make flowers and construct a bouquet.
    “Bead Flowers and Wedding Bouquets” has everything a beginner as well as an advanced beader needs.
    It has step by step explanations about French Beading, detailed and easy to follow written instructions and videos.
    I watched the videos that show Katie Dean demonstrating and explaining the techniques. I was amazed how easy it was to follow her instructions. It was almost as having her, as my private talented teacher, in my own

    The eBook has a lot of information not only about French Beading techniques but also about bouquet’s styles. It even has explanation about the meaning of the flowers that are commonly used in wedding bouquets (this was a real surprise!!)

    Most important – it advances gradually.
    The beginner (as myself) can learn the techniques of french beading and advance gradually, step by step, from making the individual flower to the whole bouquet.
    The experienced beader can also find lots of information that will teach and inspire him.

    In summary: A wonderful book and I recommend it warmly.- Bead Wonders blog by Miri Agassi

    I love this book and wrote a review for it over on Lily’s Quilts.
    If you would like to learn how to make frenchbeaded flowers then this is the book for you and you can use the flowers anywhere not just for wedding bouquets, although that is a future goal for me.
