Summer Camp is fun for all ages and beading levels. Our tutorials are step-by-step lives from your favorite industry professionals.
Camp is happening online the week of August 17th. All Summer Campers will be given access to a special private group on Facebook, where you can watch tutorials lives, play the replays again and again, post pictures and comments, and hang with the JJB Summer Camp crew!
