Whenever we decide to take on a new hobby, the first hurdle we always encounter is trying to figure out how to learn to do what we want to do. There are always many options, such as asking a friend to teach you or taking classes, but thankfully, just about anyone can learn how to bead right from the comfort of their homes.
It’s all thanks to the smartphone – that gadget that has become an essential part of our daily lives. Gaming Realms, the company that recently launched Spin Genie, says that in 2012, “There were an estimated 1 billion Smartphone users… representing 17% of total mobile users.” Today, there are nearly 1.75 billion smartphone users, and more people use their phones to access information than ever before.
This is probably one of the reasons why DIY Beading Magazine has been launched on the iTunes App Store. Recognizing that more people use their phones nowadays and that the old method of subscribing to physical magazines had become obsolete and tired, DIY Beading Magazine has taken to the mobile markets to reach a wider audience. It’s the same as any other beading magazine, containing beading patterns for different projects every month. Subscriptions are available on a 1-month, 6-month, or 1-year period, but users can also choose to purchase the magazine per issue at varying rates.
The magazine is an excellent resource for anyone just learning how to bead, especially since it comes with step-by-step instructions and great illustrations to help out beaders of all skill levels. One customer remarked, “Great resource for learning new techniques. Clear diagrams, step-by-step instructions, easy to follow and fun projects. I also like that they don’t require specialized beads that I would have to order before starting. I’ve got everything on hand so I can start right way. I’m looking forward to the next issue!”
If you’ve ever wanted to start beading but just didn’t know where to start, the DIY Beading Magazine can serve as a great source of information. From learning the foundations of beading and growing your skills to making complete accessories, DIY Beading Magazine can be the perfect tool.
