How things are shaping up: Bead&Button Show 2020 Update

Moving ahead with your safety in mind!

“This year everything is different.” That’s how Bead&Button Show director Sara Dumford put it in a recent update to our Show friends. What true words! We are all making adjustments in work, in life, and yes in our jewelry-making community.

Here at Kalmbach, the teams behind our magazine, our website, and the Show are forging ahead with you — and your safety — in mind. As you probably know, the 2020 Bead&Button Show has been moved from June to the end of August “to give us all time to better understand the impact of COVID-19, and to ensure that we can hold an event that will be safe and healthy for everyone involved,” as Sara put it. Here are some things for you to know as you think about your plans for the Show:

  • We are still welcoming entries for our international jewelry-making contests. Please remember the deadlines have been moved back to June 29, 2020, and we’ve made it easier to enter. Rules for BeadDreams can be found here, and rules for the Metal Jewelry Artistry awards can be found here.

  

  • Room blocks at Show hotels are still available. You can find more information, including dates, rates and direct reservation links on the hotel page of the Show website. Be sure to use the direct booking link to make sure you are getting the best possible rate.

      

  • If you already have a reservation for the old show dates, please call the local number for your hotel and tell them you wish to switch to the August room block. We ask that you be patient with our hotel partners as they are operating with limited staff at this time, and you may experience some delays.

 

Thanks and don’t forget to check back here or at the Show website, www.BeadAndButtonShow.com, for up-to-the minute information. Stay safe everyone!
