Save paper and ink - Read your pattern on your favorite tablet or e-reader. I keep all my tutorials on my iPad so I can have them with me all the time. I often beaded from my laptop on the table next to where I bead before I had the iPad.

All my tutorials and patterns are designed for you to use to create beadwork. I give my permission for you to make and sell things made from my patterns and tutorials. I will never charge more for a tutorial giving permission to sell things made from my stuff. I think it's such a rip off to do that. If you wish to teach my patterns or projects, please contact me and we will work out something.

This is a tutorial for electronic delivery only. This is for your personal use. You may make items and sell them but please do not share or sell my tutorial.
