Just a reminder that the Innovative Beads and Embellishments Expo will be held this weekend--November 19-21-- at the New Jersey Convention and Raritan Center, 97 Sunfield Ave. in Edison, NJ. There will be 54 vendors and beading classes, including my own Turkish Delight bead crochet and Side by Side bead crochet bracelets.
If you go to the Innovative Beads Expo website (http://www.innovativebeadsexpo.com/), you will find a list of vendors, a way to request a $1 off coupon, and driving directions. I am scouting out the way to get to the NJ Convention Center by public transportation.
The nice people at Innovative Beads just posted how to get to the show by public transportation. here are the directions: Take the Northeast Corridor train from Penn Station towards Trenton Transit Center to the Metuchen stop (48 minutes, 8 stops). Walk to main St. at Woodbridge Ave. (about 5 minutes). Take the 813 bus towards 813 Middlesex College (16 minutes, 10 stops). Get off at Northfield Rd.--1000ft north of Fernwood Rd. Walk southeast on Fernwood Ave towards Newfield Ave 0.2 miles. Fernwood Ave turns left and becomes Sunfield Ave 62 feet (about 4 minutes walk). Walk to 97 Sunfield Ave., Edison, NJ 08837. Shop for beads.
