Our new venue at the DoubleTree near the Lloyd Center, after 32 years of the Bazaar at Montgomery Park, will be closer to the Max, more buslines, two major freeways and many other downtown Portland activities, restaurants and entertainment businesses.
Classes in beading arts will be given onsite during the event - to read about these classes GO HERE.
