International Beading Week 2022 – Flowers of the World

Get involved and celebrate the joy of beading

International Beading Week (IBW) is open to everyone who has a passion for beadwork or who would like to learn more about this creative art form.  Wherever you are in the world you can get involved!

Join us for IBW 2022 and celebrate the joy that beading brings and be part of our global community. Our theme for this year is FLOWERS OF THE WORLD and we look forward to seeing beaded flowers that mean something to you.  We have a fantastic selection of free patterns to get you started or you can create something of your own.

We will have daily prompts to help you get involved on social media and in your own beading. Throughout the week we will be sharing tips, ideas, more free patterns and beaders’ stories on our social media channels - and we would love to read your stories too!
