The Bead Society of Greater New York

Bead Society Meetings

Meetings

Our meetings are our time to come together and share our passion for beads. We listen to and talk with wonderful, inspiring speakers; we share our own work with each other (completed and in-progress); we sign up for workshops; we have fun. And we always welcome newcomers.

Due to declining membership numbers in the recent years, the Bead Society of Greater NY has decided to suspend meetings this year.
