  1. There are two bead shows (AKS and Intergem) that come to town twice a year each. I go to them as often as I can, and I love them because I can get great beads and semi-precious stones for good prices. I like them both :)

  2. I'm still new to beading and I haven't been to a bead show yet. But one is coming to town in June & I'm planning on going! I follow this blog and will post & like you in FB! Thanks.

  3. I no longer attend bead shows as there is nothing local and I don't care to drive a distance. I depend on internet shopping.

  4. I primarily attend International Gem & Jewelry in Houston 2 - 4 times per year. I love to see the newest beads and findings on the market, find unusual pendants, and purchase my silver. I truly think I am a bead addict and maybe need to seek professional help... :)

  5. I attend the Gem Faire at the Orange County (CA) fairgrounds. It's right by where I live so I can return all weekend if I want. It's held 4 times a year. The prices and selection are much better than at bead shops (no overhead) and you can see and feel the beads which makes it much better than buying from on-line sources.

  7. Here in Ocala, Florida I have not heard of any bead shows that come to our city. But The Bead Strand has trunk shows all the time that are wonderful!

  8. I wasnt aware there were actual bead shows. I have several books on beads and I have gotten supplies to make things from the craft stores as I had a fascination with beads and maning beaded items but I never got to make the hing I wanted to and I still have the beads in a bag and allthe other items I bought to make what I wanted to make.

  9. Since I like in the middle of nowhere I haven't been to many shows...so no favorite. I'd sure like to go to every one, though!

    I'm a blog follower and a Facebook liker!

  10. I live in Arizona so I am fortunate enough to be able to attend all the Gem and Minerals shows that take place in Tucson, AZ.

  11. I don't attend bead shows because the second largest city in Iowa doesn't have any! We have just one bead store. Bead Haven is a great place to find the specialty beads I want.

  12. I have attended bead shows in the past, but I currently do all my shopping with existing companies I have a good business relationship with and with variable online stores.

  15. Hello, I do attend bead shows. There are two awesome bead shows here in WI. The first one and my favorite is The Annual Bead & Button show in Madison WI. The second one is also in Madison WI called th Art Glass and Bead Show. I love then for the classes they offer and all those BEADS.....
    I do follow this blog and am happy to share this on my Facebook page.

  16. Occasionally I attend bead shows. The big one in Philly is a bit overwhelming, but interesting. The Intergalactic show in Doylestown PA is nice too, and it isn't so gigantic.

  20. Murphy's Law has bit me hard for the last two years! For every bead show I've planned to attend, something has come up to prevent me from doing so. I have found in the past that attending them have served to spike inspiration for months afterward, so I'll have to get really creative this year just to show up for a couple of them.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I make the trip to Tucson every year and go to about 25 shows in 5 days it gets very overwhelming but I stick to a list for the most part and do very well. I get wonderful things from all over the world.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I usually attend the Santa Fe show for beadwork because it is closest to my home, although I have attended ones all over the US. The Santa Fe show is always full of ideas, color and supplies. AsariA

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have attended a bead show before (and enjoyed it a great deal) and would like to attend more, but the closest ones are held 90 miles or so away. With gas prices the way they are I'd better have a good reason to travel that far for the next one.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Mostly I attend whatever bead shows come through KC - which are better than none at all. Tucson can be overwhelming and mostly I only get to shows that "happen" to be when/where our travels match up. Best so far - Bead Fest Philadelphia.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Haven't been able to attend any bead shows yet, but I keep hoping.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have not ever gotten to go to a show, but would LOVE too! I have just gotten into making my own jewelry in the last year or so, & am looking forward to learning more & attending some really cool shows!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Haven't been to a bead show in a long time. There is seldom anything close by, and I have no beading friends in the area to share a long drive with.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have not gotten to attend a bead show yet, but I'm looking forward to attending my first one! I have just gotten into making my own jewelry in the last year or so, & have fallen in love with it! There are just not enough hours in the day!

  31. I enjoy Philadelphia Bead Fest and the International Gem and Jewelry show.

  32. Of course I live in Tucson, AZ so I spend my days and nights thinking about the next Gem and Mineral Show coming soon!!! I love it and spend many days browsing the isles. I also attend the Bead Show held in Santa Fe each year. I always take several classes while I am attending and love all of the instructors. The classes are fun as well as instructional...

  35. I was never able to attend bead shows because there no such events over here. I read a lot of reports about those shows and I'm sure I'd love to be in one.

  36. Not often do I get to go to a gem show, but occasionally, the Intergalactic Gem Show comes close and I do love to go!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love Intergem, which comes to Chicago a couple times a year. Right in my backyard and a nice big show. I can find a lot of things to keep me busy for months!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love Bead Fest Philadelphia! It's fun getting to meet all the beady people, and I love the community-like feel. There aren't a lot of beaders here in Rochester, NY, and I'm completely self-taught, so it's fun meeting people and learning new tips and tricks you can't teach yourself.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I am so lucky in Southern California to have so many shows available on a regular basis. Of all of them, The Pasadena Bead and Design Show (Garan-Beadagio) is my favorite because of its many unique bead and design vendors, plus classes.

  40. No have not been to a bead show lately, am to busy doing gardening and getting my veggies planted.

  41. I love the Intergalactic Bead Shows, but they don't come to my area now, so I have to drive about 3 hours to one of their shows. They are a great inspiration and I can get great beads for good prices.

  43. I go to the "BABE" (Bay Area Bead Extravaganza) show in Oakland. Often I go to shows in cities that I frequently travel to. I would love to go to some of the shows that offer lots of classes, but so far haven't been able to fit that type of travel into my schedule.

  60. I have not been able to attend a bead show because there are none close enough to me in Jackson, Mississippi as well as a lack of funds and my health issues. I have been making jewelry for about 2 years and advertising it on the web and not just "word of mouth" for about 6 months, but so far I have not had anyone contact me to even ask a question about my pieces. I posted some pieces on Facebook and got a good many favorable comments, but no buyers or even inquiries about purchasing any of them.

  61. I usually go to Bead Bazaar at the Bowers Museam in Santa Anna CA. I also go to one in Pasadena CA both my favorite shows.

  63. I regularly go to the San Mateo International Gem and Jewelry shows. They have a great variety of vendors and products. I can always find something new--and the prices are reasonable--especially if you go towards the end of the last day.
    Over the years I've gotten to know some of the regular vendors, and they have been very helpful in teaching me about semi-precious stones (I'm a hobbyist).

  67. My favorite bead show is the
    Portland Bead Society
    Annual Bead Bazaar
    Always the First Weekend in November
    Montgomery Park
    2701 NW Vaughn St.
    Portland Oregon 97210

    A co-worker and I go every year along with anyone else from our office and family/friends wanting to join us. We show up a few minutes before it opens, walk in, go each our own way and look, drool, and buy, buy, buy. When we are through, we go out for lunch (a different restaurant each time) and we take turns showing off our purchases. It is a fabulous time.

  68. I don't know if you can call it a bead show or not but once a year in Sharonville Ohio they have this get together that is pretty huge and everytime I go they have an enormous amount of beads. from seed beads to just about anything you could want in beads and findings, it is like a huge trade days, or swap meet, or flea market what ever you want to call it, but I love it. I just wish one would come closer to my home, I live in Tollesboro, Ky the closest larger town is Maysville, Ky hopefully one day. I love seed beads I make alot of earrings and bracelets on looms. Some by freehand.

  69. I have attended a number of bead shows in the past few years, but none recently. I like the Innovative Beads Expo in Edison, NJ because it is convenient for me geographically, there is a HUGE selection of materials on display, and interesting classes are offered that are taught by well-known instructors. They hold it twice a year in Edison, which is also nice. :)

  73. Have never attended a bead show. Would like to in the future.

  74. I attend bead shows - I prefer the small and eclectic to the huge and repetitive. One weekend in Marlboro MA there were 2 bead shows within a 1/4 mile of each other. Unfortunately, I do not remember the name of the one that was mostly for wholesalers, and had high-HIGH end items, but the other one was the IBExpo - quite interesting. I would love to take advantage of the bead classes taught at these, but I haven't had the chance.
    The high-end show had some of the most unique things - if I ever find out the name of that one I would love to attend again. They had stuff unlike that I have not seen anywhere else!
    You are liked by me on FB and have been for quite awhile!

  75. In the Ft Lauderdale, FL area there are 3 shows. My favorite is the Intergalactic Bead show. The facility is bright and clean. Some of the vendors appear everytime, but I always know that there will be a few new vendors to shop. Prices on much of the merchandise is reasonable and the assortment is vast - from metals and chains to glass and precious stones.

    ReplyDelete
  76. There are 3 shows that appear regularly in the Ft Lauderdale, FL area. My favorite is the Intergalactic Bead Show. While some vendors can be counted on to always be there, I often find several new vendors with new, different products. Prices on most items are reasonable and I have never gone home empty handed.

  77. Jacksonville has several bead shows, I go to about 3 per year. there is a larger Gem and Mineral Show with plenty of beads in the fall which is the best

  80. I've never been to a bead show and I am so excited to be going to my first-the Milwaukee bead show. I just know it will be even more than I expect. The great thing is I'm taking my niece who is a new beader with me. We'll be the ones with wonder and awe on or faces, the obviously sore feet, more bags than we can carry and empty wallets.

    ReplyDelete
  81. The only bead show I have been to is in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The ideas and new techniques I get to see and experience has expanded what I can do and is giving me the skill to design and try new things.

  82. Hi,
    I have not been YET, but read about them in my bead mags and am so excited to attend soon. Ilove seeing others works and new products, I also love buying beads and I see great deals and unique items at the shows...can't wait!

  87. I've attended Bead Shows from Las Vegas to Tucson and love them. I really enjoy seeing the new stuff that comes out at every show. Tucson is a wonderful place to bead shop...if you need it, you'll find it there. And...if you don't need it-you'll decide you do after seeing it being demo'ed.

  92. I live in Tucson and I go to both the February and September shows. The Best Bead Show is the best of the smaller venues during February.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I used to live in Tucson and immersed myself in bead shows (Feb & Sept). The economy (jobs) forced a move to southern Florida. I attended a small show held here in Sarasota FL a few years ago which was fun but paled in comparison. I think I'll take a trip down to Potomac Beads in Ft Myers - looks like they have a huge selection. I encourage people who have not made it to a bead show to go out of their way to do so. It's so encouraging to meet other beadaholics and see all the talent out there.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Attended my first bead show in Santa Fe not long ago. Fantastic, huge, fun. Good luck!

  95. I attended my first show in October of last year in Knoxville, TN - Gem, Mineral and Jewelry Show. The show was a great place to discover new stones that I otherwise may not have found and made somewonderful purchases. I'm looking forward to the next show this year. I follow this blog. Thanks for the giveaway.

  96. I ttend bead shows on occassion (when I have a sitter). I don't have a favorite one, but I usually attend the ones closest to me here in metro Atlanta. Ilove to attend the shows to look at all the beautiful beads and findings. I am a blog follower and liker on facebook.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I live near White Plains, NY so the International Gem & Jewelry show is there 2x a year. This is the only show I've ever attended so it's my favorite so far. The semi-precious stone selection is great and I learn more about different stones and prices. Even the non-jewelry vendors have some unique items.

  102. I like the Gem Faire here in Portland oregon. There is one in hillsboro but the one at the convention center is bigger. I go to buy semi precious stones for the sweetest prices!

    ReplyDelete
  103. I have attended a couple of Bead Shows. They were innovative Beads Expo shows. They have a moderate number of vendors. I like going there to see variety of beads and colors and new bead types. But prices aren't always better than my local bead store or what I find online.
    I think people should check out bead shows at least once, just to see what IS available.

  115. I found the Soft Flex counter was very helpful in answering questions I had. My favorite places to go for bead shows are Santa Fe, NM and Albuquerque, NM. I have been beading for a number of years but still learning.

  116. I've only been to one bead show, a bead and mineral show at the airport convention center in Stuttgart, Germany. I enjoyed it, and would love to attend a show in my current area, near Norfolk VA.

    ReplyDelete
  117. My favorite in California is the GemFaire. I go to either San Diego, Del Mar, Costa Mesa or Ontario at least 3 times a year. It is such a blast to see all the new stones on display. And Soft Flex beading wire has always been my wire of choice. Can't beat the quality.

  118. I live in Savannah Tn. so there are no shows around here, dang it.

  120. I've been to a couple of bead shows, well, it's not only for beads per se because it's called the Creative Sewing festival and that's in Toronto, Canada. Even so, I love going to these because I get to see the latest products on the market and also, I get to try new products before being able to buy them.

    My favorite bead show is the Philadelphia Bead Fest. It is close enough to home that we can drive there, has great classes, and an amazing selection! It is always fun to go to the Soft Flex tables because it's great to see all of their products, and there is always a nice give away gift sample to take home and try out!

  126. Looking forward to making glass beads for wholesale- could use the stretch magic for a project I am testing. I am enjoying the Wig Jig for wrapping wire to fuse between 2 pieces of glass !!!

  127. I had planned on going to the Tucson bead show this year, but couldn't make it unfortunately. I have never attended one, but plan to in the future. Money is my main issue right now and you've got to have money if you want to enjoy the show.

  128. I've never heard of a bead show in our area (Waco,TX) but I doubt I would attend because of physical limitations although I would love to be able to go to one

  129. I wish that I knew of some bead shows nearby, but I need to get a car before I can get to them! I live in a very small community, but just as soon as I'm able I will be traveling both near and far to get to them! For now, I shall have to be content to go to Farmer's Markets. I have come across some very unique finds that way, but I look forward to my first real bead show!
