Get a sneak preview of the upcoming issue of Bead&Button magazine.
I first discovered beading books and magazines while working
at my local public library. So many people were checking out beading titles
that I knew there was something special about this hobby! I myself was bitten
by the bug while working for three years as the copy editor for Bead&Button and BeadStyle magazines. Now, as associate editor of Bead&Button, I get to bead on the job. One of the things I love
about bead stitching is that an inexpensive tube of seed beads and a spool of
thread can make a large project or several small ones. In all of my crafting, I
lean toward the practical and economical.
When I’m not stitching beads, I’m stringing words. I work on
most of Bead&Button’s non-project
stories, including the table of contents, Expert Advice, Artist Profile, and
Basics. I also post regularly in our Editors’ Blog. Drop by and say hello!
