Saturday, December 8, 2018 - Our Annual Member Holiday party
The Bead Society's Annual Holiday Party
Enjoy the season with your fellow bead enthusiasts! The member holiday party is being held in the Kidseum, 2nd floor. An elevator is available as well as stairs. We’ll also have, in usual Bead Society style, a nice selection of tapas-style goodies for you to enjoy. The atmosphere is casual and we’ll have the area set up to encourage more mingling rather than confined seatingCheri Browning has also arranged to hold her Byzantine Weave Chain Maille Bracelet workshop right after the party from 1PM until 4PM. Those of you who sign up, just bring your tools to the party and prepare to have a creative extension to the day’s festivities.
AND - as an added surprise
We did come up with an alternative idea for the Holiday Party - we are inviting members to bring some-thing they have created in the last year (doesn’t have to be jewelry but must be with a majority of beads) to display at the holiday party. The first 25 who email Doris Weinbaum will be invited to bring their piece, with display furniture if needed, and speak for a minute or so on the inspiration that led to its creation. We see it as a “getting to know you” activity as well as an opportunity to learn and be inspired by what inspires others. Contact Doris at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info and to sign up. We would love to see and hear about your creation!
