Shop local:

Our prime objective at Canadian Beading is to address the needs and dreams of our Canadian beaders and bead suppliers, and foster the industry here at home.

Your local bead store not only sells beads – they supply encouragement, knowledge, and practical help.  True creative growth comes from sharing ideas and building on insights gained from collaboration and communication with other designers. This is a commodity not available from mail-order bead sellers and mass merchandisers. Try spending a little time at a bead store. Get to know the staff and other customers, and you will be amazed at the quantum leaps you will achieve in your own work.

Please take a minute to search through our Bead Shop Directory, and find the perfect Bead Store near you.

Don't forget that you can still pick up back issues of Canadian Beading Magazine, you can find it at all of our listed stores, or contact us directly to order a copy.

Moving forward Canadian Beading will be a free online magazine!  Spread the word.
