Our upcoming Melbourne Bead Expo is less than four weeks away.
Friday 4th - Sunday 6th November 2016
Box Hill Institute ( formerly Tafe) Building E3 - 4th Floor Level
Don't miss your opportunity to come along and do some shopping with the traders at the Expo. Nothing beats having a "hands on" look at beads and findings to inspire that next creation.
See a wonderful exhibition of beaded artwork, with all of the Members' 2016 Showcase categories plus the creative 2016 Bead Challenge competition entries on display.
Don't forget to vote for your favourite piece to win a voter's prize.

Take the opportunity to purchase an individual piece of beaded artwork for yourself, as many of these competition entries will be for sale.
The "Want It, Take it" cabinet may have just the piece for you too, with nothing over $100 in this cabinet.
There are still some vacancies in the local tutor workshops and some in the fabulous workshops being taught by our International Tutor Nancy Cain in the week prior to and over the Melbourne Bead Expo weekend in October and November this year.
