The purpose of the Village Beaders is both social and educational. Those interested in learning beading skills will meet for both formal instructions and to share knowledge. As skills are acquired, participants will be encouraged to create new pieces of beadwork, share their learning and show samples of their finished pieces or works in progress.
Payment of $12 covers the cost of either new membership or participating guest privileges and includes meetings once or twice each month during a calendar year.
