We’re glad to be a sponsor for BeadFest Philadelphia that recently took place in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. Attendance at the three-day show proved that beading is still going strong, and beaders were out in droves to learn about the newest Beadalon products. We were busy the whole show demonstrating beading techniques and previewing our new products. The new wire colors like champagne, white and SilverGold, and the new half round and square stainless steel wires were a huge hit. Most of our demonstrations focused on using the stainless steel wire to wire-wrap CRYSTALLIZED™ - Swarovski Elements and gemstone cabochons to show how many different ways you can use these fun, new wires.
In fact, one of the show highlights was a taping for the popular public television series Beads, Baubles & Jewels. Product Manager WyattWhite demonstrated new techniques for wire wrapping cabochons.

We were also proud to sponsor the Meet the Teachers Reception, which gave the show instructors a chance to spend some more time with the students and to showcase their kits and supplies. The room was overflowing with creativity and camaraderie as friends old and new got a chance to share ideas and techniques. Amazingly, all of the workshops and classes at BeadFest were sold out!
You can see more pictures from the show on our Facebook page. Be sure to become a fan while you’re there. All in all, it was a great experience for the Beadalon team, and we can’t wait to see everyone again next year!
