Bead Fest is an annual beading and jewelry-making event held several times throughout the year in various locations. The program includes 100+ workshops and classes for jewelry makers of all skill levels, presented by some of the top instructors in the country.
Bead Fest also features a large Shopping Expo, where exhibitors display beads, gems, stones and other jewelry-making supplies and tools in one convenient location. It's the ideal venue for jewelry makers who don't have easy access to abundant supplies, and a welcome opportunity for vendors to increase sales and meet their customers face to face.
Bead Fest is presented by Interweave, publisher of Beadwork, Step by StepWire Jewelry, Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist, Jewelry Stringing and Handcrafted Jewelry. Interweave's parent company, F+W Media. Inc., is a community-focused content creator and marketer of products and services for enthusiasts.
