What we're about
To this. . . .
Join us for a fun outing of light-hearted discussion, bead embroidery, bead weaving, etc. in a small group setting with other beading enthusiasts in King of Prussia, PA. Your membership will be completed following your first in-person meeting.
We meet in public year-round. Generally, we are a project-based group who skill build through doing. It's like taking a class that has been stretched-out. However, if you do not wish to do the project, bring your own work and bead with the group. If you are an advanced Beader, you are welcome and will be appreciated in this group. We are store independent and respect copyrights.
Projects are posted in advance so members can source their own materials cost effectively. Kits are not supplied. Projects have been chosen for their esthetic and educational value. The skill level of the projects may vary depending on the make-up of the group at any given time. While Beginners may be able or expected to do to do experienced projects, they can do portions of them. 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, try everything!
Learn more about this exciting and relaxing craft while becoming a better Beader month on month.
Looking forward to beading creative with you.
