Parties, Bead Retreats, Bead-ins, Get-togethers

We have a few parties and pot lucks throughout the year. We are pretty good at finding excuses to get together with our friends and share our interests in new and old beads, or just about anything that has a hole through it so you can put it on a string.


Unofficial “Bennies”

One of the best benefits is that you are in contact with other people in the community who believe that doing anything with BEADS is a great thing. Whether you are a seasoned craftsperson, a budding jewelry designer, a bead collector, or just want to learn how to make a pair of simple earrings or a necklace to match a new outfit, we probably have a number of members who share your interests. Even if we don’t, maybe you’ll get us started learning about your favorite beads, stitches and techniques.
