What we're about
To this. . . .
Learn a new craft this summer. Join us for a fun day/night out of light-hearted discussion, bead embroidery, bead weaving, etc. in a small group setting with other beading enthusiasts in Mt. Laurel, NJ and King of Prussia, PA. Your membership will be completed once you join first meeting in-person.
We meet in public year-round. We are a project-based group who skill build through doing. You may bring your own work or participate in scheduled projects.
Projects are posted well in advance so you can source materials cost effectively. Projects have been chosen for their esthetic and educational value. Projects oscilate between advanced/beginner so everyone has a chance to participate. Beginners should also challenge themselves to do portions of experienced projects. In general, how much you accomplish in the group depends on the time dedicated to projects and the number of projects you expose yourself to. My suggestion, go for it!
Learn more about this exciting and relaxing craft while becoming a better beader in just six months.
Looking forward to beading creative with you.
