    website recommendation for purchasing beads

    I want to add beads to a cathedral window runner I am working on. Can anyone recommend a website?

    Thank you,

    When I need them I go to Micheals they frequently have 50 percent off sales.

    I have purchased beads from firemountaingems.com (mentioned above). However, I buy more beads at my local Craft Warehouse. Not sure if you have one in your area.

    I am not familiar with Michael's brands of beads but I know, personally, I don't particularly care for JoAnn's beads.

    I love adding beads to my projects. Blessings to you,

    I know nothing about buying beads but...I would LOVE to see a picture of your finished cathedral window quilt with beads. It sounds like it will be gorgeous.

    i find alot of beads on ebay if you have a vision of what you want as far as type and color. ive also ordered from fire mtn gems and another thing you have to keep in mind about ebay is alot of theyre beads come from china and it can be a wait for your beads. i order alot of beads and charms off ebay and theres alot of shops to choose from.

    I use alot of beads in my crazy quilting. I think shipwreck beads has a great selection, and one of the largest.
