Beading Magazines at Ben Franklin Crafts

Without Borders to supply me with new beading books and magazines I am grateful that Ben Franklin Crafts is starting to stock an even greater assortment of craft books. A quick glance at the book rack at the back of the Hilo BFC store yielded the three publications in this photo. These were new to me and contained interesting new beaded designs for me to try. I am a novice knitter but I think I'll give the knitted bracelets a try as they are beautiful and seem easy. The projects in the Bead Chic softcover book are very fashionable and should be a cinch to create from the photos and instructions. Although we don't have real seasons in Hawaii, most women will admit to having a preference for a certain seasonal palette. This book is a good one to consider as it will show you how to design jewelry with seasonal colors in mind for your gifts or customers. I hope you will take time to browse the book and magazine racks at the Ben Franklin Crafts stores as I'm sure you'll find some great publications to spark your creativity. Hope you're having a marvelous day. Thanks for stopping to read this post!

Hi Lynn,
So glad to have seen you and your hubby at CHA. I'm still trying to catch up and also get my body adapted to the time zone change. We got back Saturday and I'm still waking up at 4 am. Lol!
