Gem Faire will be in Eugene, OR the first week of July. This is mainly a west coast event. There are a few inland shows as well. I try to make it every year. It is a great place to buy pretty much wholesale and meet up with lots of beady friends. This year in Eugene the dates are July 5,6, and 7.
Also in July 12-14 Portland, OR, 19-21 Lynden, WA and 26-28 Spokane, WA.
You can see all the events here.
Hope to see you at Gem Faire, Eugene, OR
