It is with a great deal of disappointment that we find ourselves having to inform you that all Bead Shows have been cancelled.
First Please note:-
The Bead Show and The Melbourne Bead Expo are not the same company so please continue to support The Melbourne Bead Expo which is held in November each year and run by The Bead Society of Victoria.
To run a show we need the support of Bead Suppliers. For Bead Suppliers to support shows they need the beading public supporting the shows. Support from both sides is not at a sustainable level.
We have given our best over the last 2 years to try to get these shows off the ground but unfortunately our efforts have proved to be not enough. The beading community is not big enough or interested enough to support our bead shows anymore and this applies to both sides – the seller and the buyer.
It has been great getting to know some our best bead suppliers in Australia and we thank you for your support and we hope that our paths will still cross somewhere in this big country of ours.
To our faithful supporters, it has been wonderful reading all of your comments on Facebook and we thank you for all the likes and the sharing of our posts. The excitement you brought with you to the shows had been special to share in, we have enjoyed meeting you all and we will miss all of your happy faces.
We wish you all happy beading.
Jo and Prue
