    A great selection of beaded decorations with a variety of skill levels covered. Its easy to choose the correct level as the symbols are clear.

    The instructions are well written and easy to follow and the diagrams are clear and helpful.

    The in built videos are very helpful and easy to watch.

    Another wonderful book! I had the ebook format, and I highly recommend it! It was clear and concise, and provided SO much information and such beautiful decorative projects! The bells on the cover are stunning, and much easier to create than they look, and one of the huge draws here is that you not only learn bead weaving, but some French wire beading as well – something I’ve been wanting to try out!

    The information included in the beginning chapters of the book are really helpful, and I loved that the book included video links for learning basic stitches.

    Grab one!!!

    Review of Katie Deans “Beaded Christmas” E-Book
    I was lucky enough to be chosen to write a review of these set of three E –books by Katie Dean.
    Having never read one before, I have been amazed at how brilliant they are. The interactive links made the whole reading experience so enjoyable and good fun.
    The contents page is fully interactive and by clicking on a chapter heading you immediately jump to it. Words in blue are also interactive and will lead you to the necessary information very quickly ( Stitch techniques, etc.). The fact that you can zoom in or out when looking at diagrams is especially helpful. The beading diagrams are very clear with thread paths clearly shown.
    All projects are graded for both difficulty, and time to complete which is really handy.
    The introduction to each book contain lots of really useful information, some of which I don’t think I had read before. The section on useful tips, and correcting mistakes was especially good.
    The videos on stitches are great and I feel that even a beginner would be able to follow Katie’s clear explanations.
    The Christmas decorations book has some lovely projects, with the Bells, the Crackers and the Christmas pudding, being my personal favourites. Have never wanted to try French beading before, but after seeing this I may have to give it a go!
    IN my opinion any of these books would be a valuable resource for anyone looking to make unique gifts, cards, or decorations. ( In addition many of the projects could be used at times other than at Christmas, making it even more of a “good buy”).
