IBW – What’s it all about?

International Beading Week (IBW) started in 2015 by the Beadworkers Guild as a ‘National event’ in the UK.  It soon grew into a worldwide event which prompted the Guild to rebrand it as ‘International Beading Week' (IBW).

During IBW we celebrate our passion for stitching with beads. We want to tell the world that beading is a therapeutic pastime, which helps people with their wellbeing, whilst educating and encouraging the wider public to participate and have some fun, sharing our love of beading.

The Guild are so proud of how this event has grown over the years and that beaders from all around the world want to participate.

We encourage you to join our week of beading celebrations.
