Beadfest 2011

Every year we enjoy the company of many a beading enthusiast here at The Madeleine Bed & Breakfast Inn.  Santa Fe has several interesting and unusual beading supply stores, such as Beadweaver and Beauty and the Beads, but the biggest draw of the year is the annual Beadfest.  This year the show runs from March 10-13, with the bazaar and workshops taking place at the Santa Fe Convention Center, the Hilton Hotel and the Lodge at Santa Fe.  There will be shuttles running between the Convention Center and the Hilton all day, every day.  Whether you are a novice or a professional, the 130 booths and 90 workshops will have something just right for beaders of every level.

Admission to the bazaar is free to those who sign up for a workshop, which can be done online at the link above.  Otherwise the cost is $12 for a one day pass, $14 for a two day pass, $16 for three days and $18 for four days.  Show hours are:

Thursday:  5-9pm (Hilton Hotel only)
Friday:  10am-6pm
Saturday:  10am-6pm
Sun March 10:  11am-5pm   

Santa Fe Convention Center

Beadfest is the place to be for anyone with an interest in this intricate craft.
