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.


I am pleased to announce that the August meeting date has been changed to SATURDAY August 17, 2019 from 10 am to NOON.  We will be traveling to Springfield, MA to visit Simply Beadiful.  Their address is 1916 1/2 Wilbraham Road (16 Acres) Springfield, MA  phone # 413-782-0288.

Below is the earring project that we will be making. The kit is $15 each and includes a printed pattern for the project along with including the pattern for the coordinating bracelet. They will also supply beads, ear wires, fireline and a basic needle for the earring project.

Please RSVP to me before August 12 so I can let Dawn know approximately how many kits she will need to  make.


The BEAD CHALLENGE has been decided.
 And the winner was.... Day of the Dead / Halloween ! 
We look forward to seeing lots of entries into the challenge.
They will  be due by August 17. yOU MAy bring your design to the 8/17 meeting or mail to Anne Peabody-Brostek @ 583 Maple Shade RD, Middletown, CT 06457.
ALSO we still need a secretary for the Bead Society. Marie has moved and I really miss her! ( Especially as I had to take my own notes last month. I really suck at it! ) PLEASE! PLEASE!  Please consider taking on this responsibility for the Society.

We have the  Bead Bazaar cards for you to take and pass out to friends, family, and other people to advertise the show. It will be a ONE day show this year.  

On another note, we need your ideas for meetings for next year. Is there something that you would especially like to learn? Or like to teach? Please send your ideas and suggestions to Josie and/or myself. 

Have a good day and keep beading!
See you soon,
