Beads Galore! The Toronto Bead Society Fall Fair at the Toronto Reference Library
As a long-time bead lover, I’m looking forward to seeing what new beads are on offer, and getting ideas for jewelry projects. There will be many bead and jewelry-supply vendors and some great classes, so take a look at the TBS website for all the information.
Bead jewelry and beadwork have become very popular. It’s a craft and an art that can be learned and enjoyed by all ages, with a minimum of supplies.
We all remember making macaroni or button necklaces in kindergarten, and some of us remember the love beads we wore in the 60's!
Today it just gets better. With such a colourful variety of beads available, in all shapes, colours and sizes, there’s something for everyone.
Everything you need to know about beads, from woven beadwork using tiny seed beads, contemporary glass bead-making, knitting and crocheting with beads, to the history of ethnic and antique beads, is represented in the great selection of books available at the library.
