❤ “Honestly, I am remedial when it comes to bead weaving but, HANDS DOWN!, this tutorial provided the most clear, easy to read and follow instructions I have ever seen. It makes other bead weaving tutorials that also have a good rep for being “easy to read and follow” pale by comparison. I made my earrings without any coaching whatsoever and I can’t wait to do the matching bracelet.” – Pam

❤ “Love your patterns and kits.  The color ways and color choices are super with lots of choices.  Your patterns are easy to follow and the pictures are very helpful.” – Barb

❤ “I just wanted to congratulate the both of you on being in the recent Bead and Button magazine!  My cousin and I enjoy your patterns so much and it’s good to see that the beading world does too!  Thank you for all the wonderful patterns and tutorials.  Keep up the good work!” – Marilyn

❤  “I love your patterns! They’re so simple to follow and have really great tips in them – like what to do when you run out of thread and need to add more. (It’s been awhile since I’ve done much beading, I’d forgotten!) The step-by-step photo instructions are incredibly helpful. This is exactly the type of thing I keep looking for every time I flip through beading books at the store, which I never end up buying because I only like one or two designs in the whole book. I much prefer your way!  I also find it incredibly helpful that you can see a list of ‘ingredients’ before you purchase the pattern. That makes it much easier to see what patterns I should get to use up the beads I have, or what beads I should start stocking up on before I buy another pattern.  Payment is easy and secure, and responses always seem to be very prompt – within a few hours, in my experience.  (And your buy-3-get-1-free sales are awesome.)”

❤ “Cara and Lane provide the most well written and photographed beading tutorials I have purchased. They make even the most complicated patterns simple!” – Pam

❤  “This store is amazing with customer service. The store worked with me until I was able to download my tutorial. I will always use this store for my instructional needs. Not to mention, the instructions are super to use, read and understand.” – Jessica

❤  “I’m a retired high school business teacher; and after retiring from that profession, I also wrote and taught some of the first online needlework classes on the web. Your patterns are very complete in illustrating and explaining all the steps needed for completing your designs. They really do a great job of providing your “students” with the information in a format I remember my needlework students wanting to make their stitching easy, enjoyable, and successful. Good job!!” – Dorothy

❤  “I bought The Nines tutorial not just for the design, but because of the colors used in this bracelet. When I look through your tutorials when I’m deciding what ones to buy, I also look at the colors that were chosen to make each project.

❤  “Fabulous tutorial! So easy to understand. Already working on this bracelet.  Just beautiful!” – Donna

❤  “Easy pattern instructions to follow. Already on my second bracelet. Will be purchasing more patterns.” – Pam

❤  “This pattern is extremely well written. I have made several different patterns from Simple Bead Patterns and they have all been terrific. Sometimes patterns seem to be written by experienced beaders who take for granted a certain amount of knowledge and expertise. Not so with these patterns. Possible mistakes are anticipated and corrected, steps that might seem obvious are delineated anyway. Helpful reminders are included throughout. These earrings, in particular, are pretty and festive and easy to make.” – Emmellbee

❤  “IMPECABLY done tutorial!!!! Even a beginner can master this technique! Photos of everything, well written, no ink-hogging graphics or heavy borders. EXCELLENT JOB!” – Kathleen
