At our October meeting, someone will be teaching a class on Right Angle Weave (RAW).
BSSV was invited to the Mid Atlantic Quilt Fest, for 25 Feb – 1 Mar 2015. We would need 12 people working in shifts to do the show. We asked members who were present at this meeting, if they wanted to work a shift or shifts at the show. We (Members) would have to pay for our own entry of $15. The number of people who signed up to do the show were not enough to cover all the shifts. So BSSV will not be participating in the Quilt Fest.
We need nominees for all positions of the BSSV Board: President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary. **Not sure about nominees for Newsletter, Event Coordinator**
Sandy Hubbard has a new bead store in Williamsburg: The Beadtender, 5100 Main St, Williamsburg, Mon-Sat 10-7, Sun 12-5. She is offering BSSV members 10% off their purchase! Remember October is Visit Your Local Bead Shop month.
Harold Horten was asking if BSSV members would come to his church, West Hampton Baptist Church, to demonstrate how to make jewelry to the younger church members (children) for about 1-2 hours.
The small monthly bead jar was won by our Helen Riggs! Remember to bring your spare or left over beads to toss into the small and large bead jars.
Happy Birthday to all the members who were born in October!
Basic right angle weave is a must-learn for any new bead weaver. The structural nature of this weave allows for many possibilities for necklaces, bracelets, and pendants. Play with color, pattern, and different types of beads for endless design possibilities.

Bracelet Exchange completed bracelets are due at the December 2014 meeting.
October class has us doing RAW. A bling bracelet.
In November, we’ll hold Board elections.
In December, we’ll have our social, and gift exchange, and completed bracelets.
The Treasure’s report remains the same, $1,083.52.
We normally have elections for members to take over Board positions for 1 year or so. Now is the time to think and ask questions of the current Board members about their positions. Since Karen Martin will be out for surgery for awhile, we really need someone to fill in as an interim President. Nancy Curles won’t be able to fill in the rest of the year for both the President and Vice President positions.
These positions may seem hard but they are not as hard as you imagine. All we ask is for you to be able to attend all meetings and fulfill the duties of the position. You are only volunteering one day a month of your time. Please don’t leave us without a Board in November because without a Board there will be no Bead Society of Southeastern Virginia!
