Connie Whittaker, Senior Technical Editor, Bead&Button magazine
I have been beading and teaching for more than 11 years and I’m still just as obsessed with it as I was when I began. Designing is something I enjoy whenever I have a chance, whether it’s for teaching or just for fun. With my background in illustration, writing instructions lets me combine my love of beading and illustrating into one. I also love working with all the talented designers that are in Bead&Button magazine and have formed many new friendships because of it. It’s such an honor to work every day with so many people who have the same passion for beads as I do.

When not at work, my husband and I enjoy spending time with our daughter when she is home from college, or visiting with my mom on weekends. Because I’m a cat person without a cat right now, I have fun spoiling my mom’s cat and dogs when I visit her.
