2020 Show Cancelled


Dear Customers of the Bead&Button Show,

After careful consideration, consultation with local officials, and direct input from our amazing community of jewelry makers, Kalmbach Media has made the difficult decision to cancel its 2020 Bead&Button Show.

At the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, our events team moved quickly to reschedule the Bead&Button Show for August, in the hope that conditions would be improved by that time. It is now clear that, as a matter of public health, August is still too soon for a large Expo and experiential classes.

Our customer service and sales representatives will be contacting attendees this week to begin processing full refunds for classes and booths. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us via our Customer Service portal, or by calling 800-554-0197.

Thank you to everyone, especially our vendors, teachers and passionate jewelry makers, for their support and understanding as we work through these unprecedented times. We look forward to serving you in the future.


Dan Hickey, CEO
