Perfect Plane Project Giveaway!

This giveaway has ended. Congratulations to Dixie H., on winning this Perfect Plane Project!

It’s that time of year- the kids are out of school and the vacation plans are in full swing! Many of us love taking our beading projects along when we travel, but if you are a beader, you know that transporting all of your materials can be a bit of a pain. Bead weaving projects are a great choice for your tropical getaway to the Bahamas because they don’t require any pliers or cutters, which may not fly with the airport security. You’ve got plenty to plan out already, so we’ve decided to make planning a travel beading project a little easier for you! One lucky winner will receive all that you see in this photo above: a® Exclusive Beginner Bracelet Kit, Bead Board with Folder Organizer, Beading NeedlesMagnetized Needle Case, Thread Cutter Pendant and a Clear Plastic Storage Box with 24 Flip Top Boxes to hold all your beads! All of these goodies will be sure to relieve a little stress come time for travel! For a chance to win this perfect plane project kit, leave a comment on this blog post telling us what your favorite travel project is! A winner will be randomly selected on Friday, June 15, 2012, at 4 PM PST and informed by e-mail.

Good Luck! – Allie

    I haven’t had the opportunity to bead while traveling as we usually drive where we go and I do the driving. I think I would love to bead spiral if I had the chance. This is my favorite work right now. This kit and supplies look wonderful and I would love to win.

  • Hi,
    I’m new here. I would work on a spiral weave pattern for a bracelet or necklace. If the flight is long I might work on both-to match, of course. I like the spring colors fall colors. I’m visiting Maine in September (flying from Oklahoma). I’ll be packing small beads and a few tools. I’ll be shopping for beads of interest along the coast. Please enter me in your drawing for the traveling kit. Thanks.Kay McKinnis

    I love this kit! I like to travel with precut wire lengths for making chain. Simple, doesn’t require a lot of tools or take up much room.

  • Debbi

    Wow… what an awesome kit! I usually take along the supplies for a bracelet or two.

  • Jenny

    Favorite travel project is probably reading for now, I am new here, and looking to learn how to bead! I’m Going to take beading class since I have the summer off from working with the school district. Looks like FUN :)

  • Sarah

    I like to do wire crochet…you can string the beads at home so they don’t all fall off the wire.

  • Autumn

    I have never tried to do any projects while travelling, though I will sometimes pack a single project to work to work on during my lunch hour.

  • Linda

    What a great idea! I’ve been doing shamballah bracelets, which don’t require a lot of loose beads, and that’s very easy to transport. Why not make use of all that time!

  • Beth Bauer

    My favorite thing to do while traveling to & from Alaska where I live is whatever current beading project I have undertaken. I was blessed a few years ago to attend the inaugural Beading by the Bay event with Marcia Decoster. Marcia had these amazing bead rolls for sale that a friend of hers makes & I was lucky enough to snag one before they were gone. The roll has a cool pencil box that holds my threads, needles, thread cutter, & thread zapper while the built-in pockets hold my bead tubes. Once we reach our traveling altitude, out comes the bead roll & away I go! Can’t tell you how many projects I have ended up selling to flight attendants & fellow travelers as they “oh” & “ah” over the work I am doing. Great conversation starter & fun to boot!!

  • Joanna

    I love making beaded bookmarks!!


    My favorite travel project is making earrings, bookmarks and other such projects that take 30′ or under!!
    But let me tell you I never travel without 2-3 spools of wire, anyway!!

  • Maria

    Favorite travel craft project changes…currently practicing micromacrame

  • Terri

    In July I will be making my 2nd solo plane trip. Im very nervous, but going to see my best friend. I love doing peyote and kumihimo and I do plan on doing both on the plane. I was wondering how I would keep things organized and keep beads from falling, this board would be awesome. I also eat lunch in my car at work and this would be a godsend to help me out as I work on my beading projects in my car also. I love Fusion Beads and their products. Im thrilled to have found this blog it is full of inspiration and tips. thank you Fusion Beads. Never leave home without beads!!

  • My favorite bead project is making creative earrings from some funky supplies I find along the way.

  • I always take a bag full of beads and supplies that I have put together to complete some simple projects. Our trips are generally road trips but for the hotel in the evening, I usually pull out my bead stash and create some new items. It is relaxing.

  • my family and me are going camping in july while we camping there going to the races but i am staying at camp so taking my beads this gave me great idea what to pack thank you

  • Lynanne Guynn

    Whenever I travel I always bring along several sets (stringed necklace, bracelet, and earrings) to work on. It’s a pain to gather up all the tools,beads, fixings, etc. and try to get them to my destination, using lots of containers to carry them in. I really need your Perfect Plane Project Kit, where everything is neatly in one place!

  • Becky R.

    When we go camping this summer, I would love to finish a spiral weave bracelet I began last fall.

  • Denise Brown

    I love making beaded feather hair extensions. Feathers are super light to carry. Mini pliers are handy enough and a small travel box is all you need.

  • I haven’t had a chance to do a travel project yet because I have just started to do beading. I have just learned how to do wire wrapping and am starting to learn how to bead. I love it! Can’t wait to start a new project.My first project was Fushion Beads Wire wrapping kit. It was fun.

  • Marlene Strait

    Just getting into micromacrame so that is what I would do. Thanks, so much for a chance to win!!

  • Debbie

    What a great package this is. I’m on a spiral weave kick right now so the uninterrupted time on a plane would allow for some good progress. I appreciate the opportunity to win.

  • Julie

    I always take a project or two when I travel. Made a nice triangle weave bracelet once. Perfect gift for my friend when I returned home. I’d love this travel kit!! Perfect for travel.

  • Barb Raven

    I usually do peyote or something with seed beads, but I might try kumihimo or basic stringing on my next golf vacation. I always start my project before I leave home.

  • Patti

    Favorite travel project is usually crossword puzzles – never tried beading while traveling but this travel kit would be inspiration to do so…..

  • My favorit travel project has been bead chrocheting since the beads are stuck to the string and dont run all over the place but if one had a kit like this i bet other projects would be much easier to handle. (like bead weaving and such)

  • I take a little plastic box lined with foam, a seed bead mix, some needles, and make beaded rings.

  • Cindy Myers

    Love doing chain maille while traveling. Love the purple bead board I got from your Seattle store when I was there on vacation last year. Makes my beading life a lot easier.

  • kristin

    all the goodies we know and love. I am gallery sitting this summer for my artist coop and I am planning to do an Artist at Work session, just have my stuff there to work on.

  • Cassie

    I have just gotten into bead crocheting, so that is my project of choice (at the moment). I switch favorite stitches every couple of months. I am sure there are many the same way. :-)

  • Christie

    Traveling with bead supplies takes a little organization. But I hate being somewhere away from home and my beading supplies when I just want to have something to do. This is a great little kit to grab and go.

  • On a plane – beading a cabachon is my choice. But usually I drag along half my stash, just in case.

  • What a wonderful set to travel with. When I fly, I prefer to bead a cabachon or use the peyote stitch to create a bracelet.

  • Anita

    I am new to beading so I haven’t traveled with a bead project yet. I have traveled with knitting and crocheting projects as well as the usual books or word puzzles. Your travel kit looks wonderful!

  • Probably a simple pair of earrings!

  • Ernestine S.

    Wow! would LOVE to win the kit I’m usually making sure we don’t get lost when traveling in the truck. I would love to be beading instead!

  • Linda

    Love this idea! I do a lot of peyote and recently got into herringbone/ndbelle. Been making necklaces with herringbone stitch for pendants I’ve found in AZ, along with doing herringbone stitch off both ends of a beaded bead I also learned not long ago. They come out beautiful and very easy to do. I have a small plastic box that I put a beading mat in to keep beads “pressed” in the case for traveling, but your item looks better!

  • sara miller

    I just want to start by saying I love Fusion Beads.I have bought a lot of great beads from you guys.Anyway I would have to say one of my favorite travel stitches are the right angle weave,because it is really easy to do.My second favorite stitch is the peyote stitch.There are so many different variations you can do with those two stitches.I have only been beading for like 6 months and I’m trying to build up a nice stash.So the items in this give away would be a big help for me.Thanks.

  • Elaine Lanz

    I love to work on Byzantine Bracelets with charms and beads.

  • Virginia Procunier

    I usually crochet, but I just purchased a thing that you can put a project on to take with you that you don’t have to pack up your beads, it has a cover to keep all of your beads ready to work on. I’ going to try it.

  • Briggs

    I like to bezel rivolis on planes… I love the results achieved with these fabulous faceted stones, but let’s be honest, bezelling them is tedious… especially when you need a few for your project. I like to get them out of the way on the plane since I’m stuck on the darned thing anyway!!

  • Tonya

    I always take beads with me… when I’m away from home, I usually work on some type of bead weaving lately it has been different versions of herringbone and peyote. A kit like this would be wonderful! :)

  • I take beads whenever we travel. Peyote is my all time favorite thing to do. I’m stuck on making little beaded boxes.

  • Julie Benzer

    Since I am always donating Christmas ornaments to a local needlework store for their annual breast cancer auction, I usually take one or two (or more) ornaments to work on when I travel. I do a lot of peyote stitching and passersby are always amazed at how tiny beads and thread can be used to create some really impressive ornaments.

  • Sam H.

    My favorite travel project is definitely some sort of stitching project, preferably peyote stitch. All you need is to pack some beads and the project!

  • I like to take my mini kit and make earrings,zipper pulls / key chains or bracelets …

    Bead on and on and on ect…..

  • Pearl

    This would be an awesome birthday present for me this weekend! :-)
    I like to do peyote bracelets or Christmas bead ornaments while travelling. I’m disabled, and there is about as much legroom for an economy seat as we have a chance for any politician to pass a polygraph, slim to none! ;-)
    Beading makes the trip go more quickly and it’s a heckuva lot more fun than just sitting there listening to the same ole announcements from the cockpit: “Ladies and Gentlemen, off to the right you can see “fill in the blank.” Beading also beats reading those awful in-flight magazines any day of the week!

  • Laurel

    I would begin the project at home and add finds on my Beach vacation, shells, rocks, pictures and any thing that will remind me of the trip.

  • Denise R

    I like to make stretch bracelets while traveling. This is an amazing kit. :-)
