August 2019 issue survey results

Here are just some of the questions and comments readers shared about the August 2019 issue and our responses.



Been a subscriber since the very beginning. Went to my first Bead&Button Show this past June. Oh my goodness!!!! What have I been missing? 


We hear that a lot. Don’t forget to share your experience on the Bead&Button Show Facebook page. Join us May 31 – June 7, 2020, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for the show’s 20thanniversary. We already started planning for it! The Bead&Button staff will start selecting classes soon. The class catalog will be available online in December. The application for BeadDreams and Metal Jewelry Artistry Awards will be on the show’s website by December 1. Remember to sign up for the Bead&Button Show newsletter. Each month brings you important dates, show tips, photos from past shows, new class announcements, and more!


Just never enough seed bead peyote or brick stitch.


We hear you! Starting in the October B&B Extra (subscribers-only material!) and the December 2019 issue, we’re adding peyote stitch patterns. Plus, more will be available in future issues!



More seed bead projects, less projects using the new emerging shapes.


We get a lot of mixed reactions to this one. We try hard to pick projects that balance the new beads with seed beads. Some designers are so excited when the new beads come out, that that’s all we get in submissions. If you have a design you would like considered for the magazine, please submit through our website. Read the Submission Guidelines PDF to get an idea of what we’re looking for. Select Contributor Submission and follow the four easy steps to submit. Who knows, you may see your design in Bead&Button!
