Have we mentioned that it’s National Beading Week? In fact we’re slap bang in the middle of the very first one, a brilliant idea from The Beadworkers Guild. As many of you will already know, the Guild is a registered charity formed in 1999. Its small board of trustees is made up of volunteers, whose aim is to promote beadwork through various events, activities and publications.


To celebrate this auspicious occasion, we’re going large and stretching our offer over the entire week! Just place an order before midnight on Sunday 2nd August 2015 and you’ll receive a not-to-be-sniffed-at 25% discount on everything except findings. This applies in our retail premises The Brighton Bead Shop too, so if you’re in the area make sure you pop in to bag a bargain (or a basketful)!

National Beading Week is all about bringing beaders together; it’s the perfect time to join a beading group, visit your local bead shop or just invite some friends round to see if you can get them hooked on beading too! There are exciting events happening up and down the country this week, for details of what’s on near you check out the events page on the National Beading Week website. Have fun, maybe we’ll see you there!
