About Us

Bead and Buy is about:
– Enjoying the company of your friends and making new beading friends;
– Sharing what you are creating and getting to see what others are working on;
– Having the opportunity to actually see and touch the supplies before you buy, knowing the colours and finishes will be just right;
– Having time to chat to Kay, Jo and Prue about the supplies they have for you;
– Enjoying a wonderful reasonably priced lunch with your friends
– Being able to spend the whole or part of the day beading, knowing that the supplies you will need are there for you should you need them;

The Bead and Buy team have enjoyed two fabulous years of bringing the Bead and Buy event to you. Jo, Kay and Prue are sad to announce that Dani will not continue in 2018 due to ongoing health issues. Thank you Dani for your hard work to help make Bead and Buy a success and for the fun and laughter that we shared together in doing this.
