I hope you've just watched the video and taken a little look through the class curriculum above. (You can view the materials list for free).

So, let me just recap on the most important points that I covered there...

What is this project?

You are going to learn how to use basic bead weaving techniques to make a self-supporting sweet or candy dish. The dish measures about 4" across and about 2" high. So, it will display real sweets or beaded candies.

Who is it for?

This is aimed at anyone who has a little beading experience and is comfortable learning more.

You will get a downloadable PDF tutorial with detailed written instructions and diagrams illustrating thread paths.

You also get almost 90 minutes of video demonstrations taking you through the beading steps. So, you can see how your beaded dish comes to life.

Plus, if that isn't enough and you do have extra questions, you can ask Katie and get some personal help.

When does the class start and how long does it last?

It starts whenever you're ready. So, that could be now, or later.

Once you are enrolled, you can use the materials any time. Work through at your own pace. So, you might decide to carve out a day for beading and follow the entire class in one sitting. Or, maybe you follow individual portions over several different days.

You have life-time access to this class. So, you can use these materials as often as you want.

Work from anywhere with an internet connection, at any time of the day or night.

Hi! I'm Katie and I'm here to help you become a better beader. Now, no matter whether you've just started out or you've been beading for a while, you probably come across things you don't understand or can't do.

So, that's where I come in. I've been beading since 2003. I was self-taught originally, so I'm pretty sure that whatever 'pain point' you're currently experiencing, it's something I've also faced and overcome. Which means I understand your frustration, but I can also help you to find a way through it.

My own beading experience covers a multitude of different techniques (beadweaving, French beading, bead embroidery and more!). I've published books, patterns in magazines, I even edited a beading magazine for 3 years! And I'm a qualified teacher.

All of that is very nice, but it's not what drives me. I am passionate about beading, in all its forms, and I want others to share that passion. So, my dream is to help more people, like you, to get the most out of their beading. That's why I set up the 'Become a Better Beader' group and why I started publishing beading courses. I've developed the courses specifically to address the things that people tell me they are struggling with. So, if there's something you find difficult, let me know about it.

You can also access hundreds of free informational blogs about beading and join the 'Better Beader' group at
