Welcome to the Bead Society of the Palm Beaches

The society was formed by a group of fabulous women (who just so happened to be beaders) in 2014 out of a need to build a sense of togetherness among those who have a passion for beading. We invite you to come and share your enthusiasm, talent and creativity.
We will both be glad you did.

Message from the President

As 2019 draws to a close, I want to wish all of you a joyful holiday season, as well as, a peaceful and happy new year.  

 

This has been an extraordinary year at Bead Society of the Palm Beaches, from every front.  We’ve had so much fun.  We’ve hosted teachers and truck shows.  With designer’s permissions, we coordinated our own classes & composed our own kits.  We’ve created interesting projects & accomplished fun challenges, with plenty of chances to color outside the lines.  We’ve sailed the Caribbean.  We’ve shared creative ideas & techniques.  We’ve sipped tea & indulged in just a few bites of cake.  We’ve welcomed newcomers and said good-bye to dear friends.

 

Whether it is apparent or not, we have made a difference in each other’s lives.  For this, I am most grateful.  The friendships are priceless.

 

I’ll certainly remember 2019 fondly, as my first year as President of this wonderful society. It is a privilege to be part of this remarkable group and a great pleasure to work with all of you. I want to thank the girls on the board.  Fran, Andrea, Kathee, Cathy, Mary & Bonnie for their devotion to the bead society and their tireless efforts. A big thanks to everyone who helped out by teaching a technique, picked up supplies or lent a hand to a fellow beader struggling with a project. I also want to thank our members for their curiosity and creativity, their open minds and commitment to learning.

 

All of this is what makes the Bead Society of the Palm Beaches a special, vibrant place to bead and to learn.  Learn every day, be kind and share your knowledge. Your participation is what drives the Society to success.

 

Please enjoy this holiday season. I look forward to us all working together to make 2020 our best year yet.

 

Yours in Beading,

Rhonda
