2013 HIGHLIGHT: Canada's Longest Charm Bracelet
The John Bead Outlet is sponsoring a creative and interactive booth in the children's area at this year's Taste of Lawrence weekend where we will be attempting to create Canada's longest charm bracelet!

We have 100+ meters of chain we need to fill with charms, sequins, beads, buttons, pom poms and other fun embellishments. We'll be using string, ribbon and jump rings to attach everything to the chain. No skills required! You'll see how easy it is to make something fun and wearable using some of the craft and jewelry making supplies found in the Outlet.

Bring the children by and sign our book saying you helped to make the longest bracelet ever! The finished bracelet will be displayed in our newly expanded and renovated Bead and Craft Outlet for everyone to see.

Participation is free. Parental supervision required for children under 12.
