The forum sites include:
Bead Huddle - A 24/7 online beading community based in Australia but open to all where beading enthusiasts can meet, learn, and exchange ideas and information about beads, beading and beadwork projects
Beading Forum - Based in Australia but open to all, the members are extremely enthusiastic about the friendliness and willingness to help out there. More of a beading family than a forum
About Beadwork - Here is yet another great beading resource moderated by Paula Morgan.
