For many crafters, The Big Bead show in London is almost a pilgrimage they just can’t miss. With so many bead suppliers, designer and associations all under one roof, it’s easy to get carried away, loose track of the time and walk away with a few bags full of jewellery making supplies and the familiar feeling “ooops, I was not going to spend this much!” Honestly, don’t you sometimes feel that shopping for craft supplies is almost like a hobby on its own?

If you would haven’t been to any of the previous shows, do give it a go! The next event will take place on Saturday 19th October, 10am – 5pm, at the spacious hall at Sandown Park in Esher, Surrey, KT10 9AG.
