Welcome to Halfpenney’s, The Beading Room

We supply beads, needles, threads and all sorts of other things specially for beadweaving. We can help with your beading journey in all sorts of ways and are usually at the end of the phone, so if you need any help please call.

News and New Items

Do you have a pattern or chart that has lots of different Delica beads? Do you want a more cost effective way to buy the beads you need in smaller quantities?

Then search no more. We are extending the service we already offer to our A Muse Ink customers.

Our Delica beads are normally available in 10g bags, but we are happy to provide beads in quantities of as little as 1g if you need them for a project. Just email us (kathryn@halfpenney.co.uk) with your list of Miyuki numbers and quantities and we will quote you for the beads we have in stock. If we don’t have your number in stock we will look for a suitable alternative. Each colour will be bagged separately and labelled with its number and everything neatly packed for your project.

You are under no obligation by asking for a quote, but if you want to go ahead, then you can buy just the beads with the same numbers or accept the substitutions as well.

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by sending us your list for a quote.

Beads Up North

Message from Gordon, Emma and Lucy

First of all we’d like to say thank you to each and every one of our loyal traders and customers for your support and enthusiasm for our Beads Up North Festivals.

We’ve been running our events for 12 years now and we’d like to announce that the Festival at the end of September was our last one.

We’ve all thought long and hard about it however Emma and Lucy are very busy with their full time jobs and Gordon would like to start to take things a bit easier so we don’t feel we can continue to run the festivals.

We’ve had a great 12 years, and those of you who remember Tessa, will know we’ve ran these festivals as a family in her memory. We’re sure she’d have been proud that we’ve encouraged lots of people to get beading, especially Up North!

Thanks again for all your support and please keep beading!
