30th July to 2nd August

We are now in year 2 of this great initiative by The Beadworkers Guild.

Gordon and I were invited to be Ambassadors for the event this year – you can read our ‘acceptance speeches’ at

We are hoping to have more events this year where anyone can get involved and have some fun.

EVENT 1 – confirmed

Beading day at the Beads Up North Bead Festival, Haydock Park Racecourse on Sunday 31st July.

Come and join us for a day where you can shop for all your beading goodies and then join us to do some beading and make new friends. Stay as long as you like. We will have demonstrations and free stuff to make too. One of the bead groups that meet here – Beadweaving 4 Fun – will have an exhibition based on Geometrics, so you never know what inspiration you will get. More information about the demonstrations and workshops will be posted on the Beads Up North page,

EVENT 2 – to be confirmed

We hope to have a beading day at a very accessible venue in Preston. Plans for demonstrations and free workshops as well as a day of beading.

EVENT 3 – to be confirmed

We hope to have a beading day in the Accrington area, subject to finding a suitable venue. This event will be open to all beaders to come and join us to bead for the day and for non-beaders to come and see what it’s all about.
