The upcoming events planned by the Society are listed below. Except as noted otherwise, all events are held at the Spirit of Hope Church in Englewood, CO; click here for directions (link will open in Google Maps).
Due to scheduling conflicts at the church where we meet, we were required to change our meeting schedule to the 4th Thursday of the month for 2017. We understand that this is a significant change for some and we considered alternatives, but have determined this to be the best option for this year.
Remember, that in January, February, and March – meetings are actually on the 4th Saturday to accommodate snow travel. A meeting schedule for the next 90 days is included below.
2017 Event Schedule
Saturday, February 25 – Bead Challenge Results
We’ll bring the results of our annual Bead Challenge! Details of the Bead Challenge were distributed prior to the holidays and can be found here. Any beading technique qualities for the Level 1 category. Even if you don’t submit for the challenge, stop by to appreciate the creativity and individual style of your fellow members.
The doors open at 9:30am (or 9am for those submitting items for the challenge).
To speed up the registration process, please print and complete this form prior to the meeting. (Bring one completed form for each item being submitted.)
Marcia DeCoster’s LOVE Letters will be taught by members Sandy Brock, Irene Hartung and Rachel Hungary.
In January world renowned bead artist Marcia DeCoster launched her Bead Love blog. Marcia started the blog to put as much love back into the universe as she could. After thinking about how she could convey that love she decided to stick with what she knew. She quite literally beaded L.O.V.E.!
When we approached Marcia for permission to teach her LOVE Letters to our membership she immediately responded “Absolutely! I want to spread the love everywhere!”
The LOVE Letters are beaded using Cubic Right Angle Weave and surface embellishment. Please don’t let that intimidate you.
Experts will be there to help you along, and you’ll receive a printed handout on each letter to take home with you. For more information on Marcia’s blog please visit http://lovebeadlove.blogspot.com/
