Milwaukee Bead and Button was good for me (first time). Everyone
who was there before said that it was down.
I have been teaching at Bead & Button for the last 4 years, and
selling kits to my students and at Meet the Teachers. This year I
netted just over half what I did last year. I was chosen for fewer
hours of teaching, and had to cancel a two-day class for lack of
registration. I did end up netting about the same per day of
teaching, however. There seemed to be as many people there, though I
guess I can’t really say, since I don’t do the expo itself.
