The Power of Beading

The Power of Beading Contest & Charity Fundraiser is the brainchild of well known bead artist Kerrie Slade and is being held in collaboration with Beading Daily. The contest involves submitting a personal story about beading and how it has helped you through a challenging time. Deadline for submission is September 12th. Winners will be announced on Beading Daily and will receive one of Kerrie Slade's Ribbon Awareness Pins.

The Charity Fundraiser was designed in honor of Kerrie's mother who has breast cancer. Funds raised from the purchase of Kerrie's Ribbon Awareness pattern will be donated to two charities: The Wellness Community and the American Institute of Cancer Research.
