    I love this book! As a beader since 1967 I have many books, magazines, patterns, and downloads. The pages are beautifully colored, the videos are clear and precise, and after a few steps of prep on my phone, I am able to have the book with me wherever I go, including being able to watch all the videos. The price is well worth the convenience and quality. Printing the book was a breeze and looks just as crisp and clear as the pictures in the download. The best part is, if you ever have any questions, Katie is just an email away to help. Also, Vivebooks provides fast and friendly customer service for any questions you have, with regard to downloading. So what are you waiting for? Treat yourself to this jam packed book of patterns and video tutorials, gather up your supplies and start beading! 🙂

    Amazing book. I’ve been beading since 1979 and mostly self-taught in the various bead stitch techniques. Katie’s book “How to Make Beaded Boxes’ is very well written and illustrated; which is a big help to those that are beginners or advanced beaders. What’s also nice is that you can contact Katie if you have any questions regarding any of her patterns. Visit her website to see all they other tutorials that she has available. Have fun and Happy Beading!

    I’m a long time beader’s and Katie Dean fan. I’ve made a bunch of her patterns and her instructions are really clear and easy to follow. I’ve also had occasion to ask a question or two and was really impressed with how quickly Katie responded. I quite enjoyed the adventure of downloading Dropbox and Adobe Acrobat so I could watch the videos on my iPad. As soon as I finish Katie’s Santa I’ll be starting on a project from this book.
