Bead shows!

It's bead show season, and what could possibly be a better way to get inspired than attending a bead show? Tons of vendors, demos, and of course checking out the awesome creations being worn by the attendees!

We'll take a bit of a break from our monthly Inspiration Friday post - as it seems everyone has been far too busy to take shots of their creations ;-)



I just got the Toronto Bead Society newsletter this morning, and there looks to be an amazing lineup of demonstrations throughout the weekend.

There will be 58 vendors, with over 100 tables of awesome beads/components/supplies!  Of course we'll be there, but if you can't make it down to the show - the store is still open throughout the weekend. Stock may be limited as quite a bit of our merchandise will be taken to the show.

For those of you not in the Toronto Area, quite a few bead societies also coordinate their own bead fairs.  Have a look around to see if there is a local bead society near you.
