Bead Cruise 2011
Many bead societies take a break during the summer and have started their fall programs again. If you are looking for a bead society in your area, check out this resource from Rings & Things. And check with your local bead stores or art communities for classes in your area.
Don't have a bead society in your area, gather together with beady friends one day each month and start your own!
Not sure what to do:
Throw an autumn-themed Bead Soup Party.
Do a bead swap.
Findings Day - make custom earwires & clasps, each person shares and teaches an idea.
Resin day - make your own art pendants.
Whatever you decide to do just being together and sharing a day of beads is good for the soul!
