We are having a meeting that is a combination field trip and class. We will be at BeadNiks (325 Laskin Rd, Virginia Beach, VA 23451) with Cathy Bond teaching the Beaded Bead. This is a two needle technique. See the supply list as follows:
Beaded Bead, this is a 2 needle technique.
4 – 6mm round beads
8 – 4mm beads (either round or bicone)
size 11 delicas
2 – size 12 needles
thread (6lb FireLine or your choice)
Thank you to everyone that volunteered at the Treasure’s of the Earth Show at the Hampton Convention Center last month. It was fun, even though there seemed to be less people visiting the show than before.
We still need volunteers for the Treasures of the Earth Show (April 21-23, 2017). Please see Cathy Bond about volunteering and to check your schedule if you have already volunteered.
During the March meeting, we discussed raising the yearly membership dues from $24 to $36. This was unanimously passed by all members that were present at the meeting. This new yearly due will take effect in January 2018 for all members.
Also, we discussed and agreed on, raising the percentage of sales to 15% from the current 5%.
We also have had thoughts of doing a monthly raffle,
We have a new way of doing the Challenge this year. Participants will pay a $5 entry fee and there will be prize money for the top three winners. Challengers will be using their own supplies to make entry pieces that will fit a specific theme. The pieces will be due in November instead of December.
Sande Hubbard, The BeadTender’s owner, has her new shop open in Poquoson. The store is located at the shopping center at the corner of Wythe Creek Road and Little Florida Road.
