Fabulous Tutorial Collections by Deb Moffett-Hall

Imagine a beading magazine with no ads - just exciting beading tutorials mailed right to your door. That would be one way to describe Pattern Collections for beadweaving created by Deb Moffett-Hall of PatternsToBead.com. This new series by one of beading’s most active kit makers is a great way to keep inspiration flowing, try new techniques, and bust your stash all at the same time.

Patterns to Bead Tutorial Collections


Each collection contains five assorted projects including jewelry, accessories, home d├ęcor, and ornaments - all with step-by-step directions and color photographs to guide you through the techniques. Peyote patterns include full color graphs to follow, and beautiful seasonal themes. The projects are perfect for beginner to intermediate beadweavers, and offer a wide variety of stitches to experiment with. Deb uses many different bead favorites in her patterns, including Delicas and seed beads, crystals, pearls and even two-hole beads.

Golden Links Necklace Variation
I made this variation of Golden Links
using some of my favorite beads.

Beaders don’t need to have a color printer to enjoy these patterns - each one is mailed in full color packs that you can store and refer to at any time, and the shipping is free. Pattern Collections are available as a single issue with five projects, or as a subscription for twelve months of inspirations! My favorite project so far is the Golden Links necklace that uses openwork RAW and two-hole beads to make a beautiful pair of bead chains.

Like all of the projects, the instructions are easy to follow and adapt to your current stash or favorite colors. If you’re feeling eager to get beading but don’t know what to make, Patterns to Bead Collections may be just the thing to cure your beader’s block!

You can find many more jewelry tutorials, ornament patterns and beading kits at PatternstoBead.com. Many thanks to Deb for allowing me to try out the Pattern Collections. Inspirational Beading has not received compensation for featuring products in this post.
