The Connecticut Bead Society is a volunteer driven non-profit organization dedicated to sharing the joy of beading through inspiration and education. We provide the opportunity to meet kindred spirits with similar goals and take pleasure in our art and in each others company.
Thank you to all of our 2019 CTBS Bead Bazaar Vendors for making Saturday, 9/7/19 a gread beading event!
See you next year!

Come to learn the Brick Stitch with Ruth Ann Kowalski @ the Community Center from noon to 2:00 PM
We will be making earrings to learn brick stitch in the round. Below is a list of supplies. We will be using Jill Weisman' directions for this project which calls for delicas. But you can use seed beads. Different sizes add a little dimension. You could also use a hoop earring in place of the ring. Below is a link to the downloadable pdf instructions and Jill Weisman's Youtube video. Also a couple other variations.
