The Bead Social is about more than just beads.
It is an opportunity to have fun while working on a beading project. Dig out the components for that piece you’ve been meaning to start, the one that is almost done, or the one you need a bit of help with. Perhaps you have never beaded before and would like some guidance. Maybe you’ve successfully started something but need help finishing it. Pack up your project and bring it to the Bead Social.
Members will also be participating in two special activities: (1) "Continuing your Bead Crochet Bracelet and Learning Finishing Techniques" and (2) “Continuing Polymer Play".
For the bead crochet, don’t forget your two kits and your crochet hook! Additional polymer clay will be available for purchase or you can bring your own. Also pack up a snack to share – what is any kind of social without food? We will bead, eat and be merry!
There will also be a special event at the Bead Social. Marti Brown of Dragon's Odyssey will be bringing her Niobium Trunk Show with great niobium findings and other goodies for your viewing pleasure. If you need a special clasp for one of your projects, be sure to bring it to match with the wonderful colors she has created. (Niobium is hypoallergenic and perfect for anyone with metal allergies.)
The Bead Social will be held during the regular two-hour DVBS meeting. Free to society members and guest. Guests must please pre-register.
