Ultimate Digital Beading Giveaway

There are a great many talented and passionate beaders out there who got their start by trying out an enticing project from the pages of a beading or craft magazine. With so many fantastic and inspirational publications out there, anyone can give beading a try by learning from experienced artists and editors who love to bead.

Many of us have carefully cultivated collections of our favorite beading magazines, but with so many issues to choose from, we can’t always have every project at our finger tips. At least, until now. If you have a smart phone or eReader,chances are you’re already taking advantage of digital magazines, and the convenience of instant project downloads from your favorite publishers. If not, now is your chance to give it a try!

  5. I don't know that I am a beader but I do like wire jewelry and use beads in that way. Step by step wire magazine surely piqued my interest.

  10. I would have a hard time choosing between Bead and Button and Beadwork; they both have fabulous projects. And I second the person who said going with something you cant get electronically like Australian Beading would be a neat idea.

  16. I would choose Beadwork! It had such fabulous projects to try. Loved the necklace on the front and would like to attempt it. I can't always afford to buy the books I would like to have to learn new techniques, so I would love to win this!

  17. I was torn between Beadwork (which I subscribe to) and Australian Beading. I love that Bead & Button lets you add the digital version for $6.00 more when you renew that subscription & I wish Beadwork did too. In the end, I'm going with Australian Beading. There are so many wonderful beaders there. I'd love to see more of their work. Thanks.

  23. Beadwork - Bead & Button - Bead Step by Step were my Staple diet when I lived in NYC.
    Now that I live in India these mags are equivalent to Luxuries and every time I look at my old collections to find something new to to do!! Hence these days I want them all. Wishful thinking with $ to Rs. conversion.
