 2017 Spring and Summer Show Schedule:


May 6 - 7: Kansas City Bead Blast (This is such an easy and fun show to do, lots of beaders and Vendors!!! I had such good help from the Bead Society Volunteers last year when a friend needed my help at her booth, so the volunteers helped me at my booth.     A wonderful group!) Kansas City, MO

June 4 - 11: Bead and Button Show  (This is a BIG SHOW for me! Plus it is close to my near and dear Madison and lots of friends in the area, plus my husband is from Muskego. Our first home was in Pewaukee, then Mukwonago then the east coast...then back to MN...lots of years and stories.) Milwaukee, WI

August 16 - 20: F+W/Beadfest - Philadelphia (This show brings me back to the wonderful Italian Food and Bagels. I don't know... it is just not the same. The Beading groups come quite a distance to attend this show which is special in itself. I always look forward to seeing returning customers and making new friends.) FYI: I did finally start submitting some classes to teach at this show. Time will tell if they get scheduled. Oaks, PA
