February Project: Bead Board
February 28th Meeting
The church had their annual pancake feed so the group met upstairs for the night.
The meeting was called to order at 7:10 with 15 people in attendance.
Lisa D. discussed that club dues should be paid, she has a list of all that haven’t yet and reminder emails will be sent to all.
Bead It Forward
Bead –It-Forward projects were due. Lisa collected them and was going to mail them out as soon as possible. The new theme for next project has not been posted on their website yet. It’s a bit early but look for that to happen in the next couple of months if you are interested in participating.
Casting For Recovery
Casting for Recovery has made some changes. The group has decided to split their trips up into two separate outings of 14 participants each, which are now going out in June and October. We were asked to provide items for both trips. The decision was unanimous by all in attendance to participate. Joni is going to call the group to confirm our commitment.
Projects are need by May 1st for the June outing. A uniform design was discussed and a fish pendant was decided upon Cindy will get the necklaces that are needed for the pendants.
Edna Perkins projects are due at the April meeting, please be generous with your resources and talent!
Omaha Bead Affair
The Omaha bead Affair is coming up in April. A sign-up sheet for volunteering was sent around. We need volunteers for each day to attend to the group table, help with Friday set-up, work the entrance table, be a runner for the vendor if they need it. We also need someone to put up signs along the road in the mornings and take them down for the evening.
We are not asking for all day participation, just a few hours to help represent the group and help. We are splitting the entrance and give away table with the Lamp Workers Guild.
The Nebraska Bead Society has opened up their classes with National teacher Laura McCabe. Any that would like to take the class can check out their website for pictures and information about the projects, class times and directions. I have heard they are hard to find so participants can get ahold of Kim Dimitroff and she will email them to you. Classes are $55.00 for any non-member of the Bead Society.

Egg Challenge submissions are due in March for voting and to be used on our group table at the Bead Affair
