NBW Beading Day August 5th

We've had a couple of cancellations, so there are a few places left for our FREE beading day on 5th August. 10.30am - 4.00pm, here at The Beading Room. Refreshments provided during the day, but bring your own lunch if you're staying all day.
You are also welcome to pop in to see what we're doing, or have a go at one of our free projects for new (or not-so-new) beaders.
As we have limited space, you do need to let us know if you're coming so ring Kathryn on 01254 236049 or email to book your place.
Happy Beading x

Our latest delivery has now been weighed and bagged, and apart from HD752, the Delica range is currently all available.

We did pretty well with the seed beads too, and there were just 2 - 11HM542, and 11HM4204, that were out of stock with our wholesaler.

There are some new colours, and hopefully these will be photographed and available later in the week. Don't worry, I'll let you know what they are as soon as they are up!
