Summer is around the corner

Canada Beading Supply is celebrating 33 years in business this month and what a journey it has been! We still have a number of customers from those early years and many have become friends. The world of beading is so inspiring and our many customers inspire us. One of our pleasures over the years has been to see what you create with our supplies. It is truly amazing what directions people take and how their work evolves! That is one reason why we hold beading challenges from time to time. If you are participating in our Canada 150 challenge, June 10th is the last day to have your piece to us as voting by customers will begin June 12th.

As part of our celebrations, mail order customers will have free shipping for the month of June. Unfortunately we will have to increase shipping costs in July as we haven’t kept pace with Canada Post’s annual increases for several years. We will let you know before the end of the month what the new rates will be. 

A long-time customer and friend suggested that we look at Harold Munro’s poem “Overheard on a Salt Marsh” about a fascination with green beads. It is also fun to listen to various recitations on Youtube. Search in Google to get more options when you have time for a mental escape!

We all hope you have a wonderful June and we give a sincere thankyou to all of you who have supported us over the years by trusting us with your business as well as giving us advice, encouragement, and the odd bit of criticism as we move forward!
