  • "Learning both the rolling mill and keum-boo techniques in one class was amazing. I truly count on Bead Fest for much of my jewelry-making education. I attend both the Spring and Fall events. I do love my expo shopping too though!"

  • "I loved the willingness of the demonstrators at the booths to share their skills with you. It was great to try tools and to have experts show me things that I could do with the tools, or to watch someone make a bead with a torch (so cool!). There were so many little tidbits I picked up from just visiting the booths. I love that!"
