If you are an arts & crafts person like me and especially if you like to make your own jewelry then I have an event for you this weekend. The West Texas Bead Market will be at the Abilene Civic Center with tons of beads to help complete your projects.

There are 19 shows in Texas scheduled for this year and Abilene is a scheduled stop this weekend. The show will have vendors who carry gemstones,seed beads, glass, tools, lampwork and much, much more. So if you are ready to get creative and start thinking about upcoming holidays this is a perfect time to grab some new beads and tools.
