Coming to a Show Near You!

Trade Shows are part of the busy life of any company who wants to connect with existing customers and share their information with potential customers and students. BeadFX has already been busy participating in several shows this year. Although it takes a lot of time and effort to organize our participation, I love the creative energies that shows produce and the chance to meet new people!

Early in April we attended and did demos and quick classes at Artwaves - a show designed for folk painting, mixed media and general crafts.  We just finished up two other shows this past weekend: BEadFABULOUS (sponsored by the Toronto Bead Society) and Knitters Frolic (sponsored by the Toronto Knitters Guild). Both shows were busy and fun!

So what's coming up? Mark your calendars now to attend any of the following:

Inspiring Threads
