Our September 21st meeting will be our nomination of new board members. Be prepared to throw your hat in the ring! Election will be November’s meeting!
Open beading will be September’s activity. Make sure to bring something to work on.
The blank bracelets for the Bracelet Challenge Exchange are Still being accepted (last time for late entries) and the completed bracelets are due in December 2014. Please see Janet Jenkins if you are turning in a blank bracelet.
This month’s and October’s meeting will be at Alternative’s Inc. current place in the Riverdale Shopping Center, just past the Cinema Café Movie Theater.
It was suggested that at the Intergalactic Bead Show, BSSV have a table to sell our beading creations, and give a percentage back to BSSV.
The small monthly bead jar was won by our Shelley Davis! Please ladies Shelley needs a little competition over that jar! Remember to bring your spare or left over beads to toss into the small and large bead jars.
Here’s a something we haven’t done in a long time: Happy Birthday to all the members who were born in September!
