Tucson: the Biggest Bead Show of the Year
If you say the word “Tucson” while in close proximity to any beaders, they will practically swoon at its mere mention. Attending the Tucson Bead Shows is like a beader’s version of a pilgrimage to Mecca: You have to do it at least once. Beadwork and Jewelry Stringing‘s own Jean Campbell and Debbie Blair are lucky enough to be going to Tucson next week, and they’re eagerly looking forward to discovering new beads and findings to share with readers, as well as spending time with some of the magazines’ advertisers and project contributors.
To make the most of your Tucson experience, it’s important to plan well. Danielle Fox shared some of Jean Campbell’s Tucson tips in “How to Prepare for the Tucson Bead Shows“; this information will come in handy if you, too, are traveling to Tucson next week and want to maximize your time there and minimize your stress.
In addition, our 2015 Tucson Show Guide is your must-have resource for everything you need to know about the Tucson shows: maps, exhibitor lists, floor plans, hotel and restaurant resources, and a comprehensive guide to exhibitors. Grab your copy of the Tucson Show Guide for only $20, and get a jump on one of the most exciting weeks of your beading life!
