Berkshire Beaders


A beading group based in Reading, Berkshire, who meet regularly once a month and for occasional workshops.

Berkshire Beaders celebrated their 20th anniversary in October 2017!

From humble beginnings when a beading enthusiast in Berkshire wrote to the Bead Society of Great Britain to ask if anyone in the Reading was interested in getting together for a bit of beading, the club first met in members' homes until it grew too large and moved to halls. There was a huge growth in members in the early years, as there were few bead shows, suppliers and sources of information. Things have changed with more and more bead clubs popping up, groups running over the internet and an explosion of information online, but we're still here!
