We are excited to announce the October 12 and 13, 2019 Bead Bazaar Plus event at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Portland, OR.  This is a NEW DATE and NEW VENUE for the first time in our 30 year history of the Bead Bazaar. 

The former historic venue at Montgomery Park is no longer; they are not accepting event venues due to the growth of their full-time tenants.  The Portland Bead Society now has a wonderful new opportunity for the annual Bead Bazaar Plus. The DoubleTree by Hilton venue is large, is on the Max, and is close to many other downtown Portland activities, restaurants and entertainment businesses. 

We are very excited about having expanded BEYOND beads to other fine arts media. We have the following products offered by new artisans: dozens of fine artisans in many artistic media, (not just bead- related) and suppliers offering beads, flameworked glass art or beads, beading supplies, tools, finished beadwork including jewelry and beadwork, semi precious stones, Shibouri dyed fine leather garments, mixed media jewelry, colored pencil representational art, 1920s Hollywood inspired loungewear and hats, mixed media, metal, polymer, wood, bags, jewelry and accessories, quilting supplies, felted hand dyed wools, kits, fused glass jewelry and artwork, wood ducks from golf club heads, ceramic faces, wire/wood assemblage art, ceramics, paintings, and woodworking are on offer by vendors from the Northwest and beyond.

The vendor application form is downloadable (Click on THIS).  Contact information for the vendor liaison is on the application. Questions should be sent to Arlin Robins pbsbazaarvendors@gmail.com.  We are providing free tables for guilds to provide demonstrations and advertise membership in their group.

The member Co-op Table application is available to download HERE. We are also planning classes in beading arts during the event. Teachers and designers who would like to teach a class can direct inquiries to Judy West , judithswest@gmail.com.  Questions about the Bazaar Plus that are NOT vendor/class related can be sent to Janis VanWyhe, Chair, at jlvanwyhe@gmail.com.

 We look forward to this new venue and all of its potential!  SPREAD THE WORD!!!

Proceeds from the Bazaar support year-round PBS activities which include lectures by bead artists and researchers, classes, grants and educational awards, and traveling bead exhibits. The Portland Bead Society is a not-for-profit [501(c)(4)] organization.
