We will be meeting at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Peninsula (13136 Warwick Blvd. Newport News, VA 23602) on Sunday, September 17, 2017. Why you ask?
We decided that the Performing and Creative Arts Center in Hampton was draining our finances or would be because they want to charge us the City of Hampton’s full rental room rate and they left us off of the schedule more times than was necessary. We had then planned on meeting at Sande Hubbard’s store, The BeadTender, but she has decided to close her store since that plan was made.
Thank you Cathy Bond for teaching the ’Magic Chain’. Please see Cathy for instructions if you missed last month’s meeting.
We moved the Annual Members’ Sale to September 30th and will be held at Cathy Bond’s house. She will provide her address at the meeting. If you have questions before the sale please contact any board member or specifically, Cathy Bond.
The Bead Challenge theme is Mardi Gras and is due at the December 2017 meeting. You can make just about anything as long as beads are involved, don’t limit yourself to just jewelry!
We would also love to have our members teach classes to other members and potentially open classes to the public as well. The open classes would involve a fee with a portion going to the BSSV.
Please speak up if you have an idea that will aid the Society in any way. We can do our best to see it through.
If you already have beading buddies please invite them to one of our meetings!
Find yourself having questions or issues with certain techniques an can’t find a satisfactory answer, bring it to our meeting and someone would be more than willing to help figure it out with you!
Evelyn Miller won the monthly bead jar!
