2020 Art Glass Bead Show March 21-22
The Madison Bead Society meets the 4th Tuesday of each month (except in December and January) from 6:30 to 8:30 - unless otherwise noted. Officers meet at 6:00 on meeting nights; all members are welcome to attend
We try to alternate between the east and west side of Madison. Some meetings are held at local libraries and some at local bead stores.
First meeting: no charge
Subsequent meetings: $5.00 each
Meetings may consist of sharing projects and problems, or just sit and bead, or include a more formal program (instructions for a beading project or a presentation). Some meetings may require advance reservations and/or an instruction fee. Supplies needed for a meeting's project will be listed with the event details.
Programs for 2020:
Programs we are working on for 2020 will include bead looming, color, bead embroidery, and wrap bracelets.
