The International Beading Week pattern collection began in 2015 and new donations are added each year. Each pattern has been kindly donated by IBW ambassadors, designers and Beadworkers Guild members to encourage and inspire beaders of all abilities and skill levels worldwide.
This event is run by The Beadworkers Guild, but the copyright for the designs and instructions remains with the designer/tutor. IBW patterns are free for all to enjoy and intended for your personal use only. You may not copy, sell, share or teach the designs in any format without seeking the designer’s permission, this also applies to anything you make from these patterns.
Please click on the project titles below to download your free patterns, but be aware that some of the files are extremely large, so they may take time to download.
If you would like to donate a pattern for our event, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
