The action at BeadFX doesn’t just happen in the store, on the web, or in classes – it happens at trade shows too!
Fall is an active time of consumer trade shows – and all of the shows we participate in are open to the public. And because you can use beads and more in so many more application beyond jewellery, we go to shows that let us stretch the imagination of those who visit our booth!
This fall’s show sponsors include two well-known bead societies and two textile specialty shows. We hope you’ll drop by and say ‘Hi’!
