Are you curious about bead weaving? Do you want to get a ton of helpful tips about the tools, materials and how to begin learning? Or, have you already done some bead weaving, but you want more help and tips?

Then this course could be for you.

Now, I'm going to be completely transparent here. This course includes a lot of material that is available for free on My World of Beads website. However, I've added a ton of extra advice and tips that you don't get on the website, or anywhere else. Then, I have ordered it all for you to follow in the most helpful, logical sequence.

Plus, you get access to me, directly. So, if you need additional help, you can just ask for it and I will answer your specific questions and help you through problems. Basically, you have access to one-to-one tuition from me. That isn't available anywhere else!

I have linked to patterns that you can try if you want to start putting your techniques into practise. But these are sold separately, so you don't have to use them and you can practise on any pattern you already have.

So, you're going to save yourself time and money in the long run by finding out all the information and tips that I spent years learning through trial and error.

How do you know if you need this?

With so much available for free online, I completely understand if you're still questioning whether or not you really need this. It's good that you're asking yourself that question - it's important.

So, I've made the introductory section of the course available for you to try for free as a preview. You'll find out a bit more about what the course covers. Plus, I set this up with a little quiz to help you discover how much you already know.

So, take a look at that. If you ace the quiz, then you probably don't need this course. But if there are a lot of answers you don't know or don't understand, this course is the quickest and easiest way to have them explained.

And once you understand these things, you'll avoid a lot of common mistakes!

How does payment work?

You don't have to remember all the information. The one-off fee gives you lifetime access to this. Or you can choose to subscribe annually. So you can dip in and out and follow along at your own pace. You can also decide whether you want to pay via credit card or Paypal.

I will be adding to the content in here. So, when I write new blogs that are relevant to any of these areas, I'll post them in the appropriate section of the course, keeping it easy to find the best information and top tips at any time.

How to check if you want to do this

Remember, if you're not sure whether this is going to be helpful, try that first section preview and take a look at the full curriculum down below.

Then, it's up to you to decide whether to keep on hunting for the information you need on your own. Or whether to just pay a little bit for all these amazing benefits:

  • Access to additional material that isn't available on the website
  • Access to personal tuition from me whenever you need it
  • Save time and money by learning the best tips and tricks so you avoid making common mistakes

Your Beading Tutor

Katie Dean
Katie Dean

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
