A very busy meeting this month with a fantastic workshop with Chloe Ménage and Davida from Old Bicycle Shop with her fabulous selection of beads and patterns.  We were also lucky enough to have a mini Chloe with us, although Rose didn’t do much Beading. Apologies for the time I have taken to update this month, had a small domestic crisis that put it completely out of my mind.


We celebrated International Beading week in style at Pam and Carol’s, raising £168 for St Barnabas, the local hospice. There was an enormous raffle with many prizes donated by bead suppliers. The project for the day was the glamorous angel Christmas ornament and I look forward to seeing lots of finished ones on the show and tell table this month.

We have Anne-Marie from the Bead Barn coming to us this month so we can replenish our stashes. The subject for the show and tell table is projects from International Beading week which has now been going for at least four years so I’m sure we’ve all done something from the various patterns.
