Beady Bunch May 27th Minutes

The meeting was called to order with 13 members and 7 guests present. Welcome Beth, Mary, Lori, Lisa, Jeri, Christine & Stephanie. We are so glad you could join us at the meeting.

Lisa gave the treasurer’s report.

Old Business: Chris and Lisa reported on the Bead Bazaar committee. The bazaar will now be called the “Omaha Bead Affair” and will be held for two days at the La Vista Community Center off of 72nd behind the Keno building. The dates will be April 11th and 12th, 2015. Each of the three groups will have a table near the front of the entry in order to promote their group. Classes will be offered and a web site will be set up to promote the event and allow participants to sign up in advance for the classes. We will need lots of volunteers to help set up and tear down and a special incentive may be offered for those who help out. So we hope that all members will offer some time to be there and help. The next committee meeting will be in June.

The Edna Perkins project. Joni reported that our 87 donated items have been signed, sealed and delivered to the Vet’s hospital. This is the 8th year for this project. Chris announced that our September meeting will be designated to making items for this cause, instead of a monthly project.

Our second Bead Retreat will be held on Sept. 19th, 20th and 21st, 2014 at the Creighton retreat center in Griswold, IA. Sign up will begin at the June meeting, so be checking your calendars and bring a check to reserve your spot. There is room for 18 people.

New Business: Discussion was held about whether a member would be paid to hold a workshop. A discussion was held and the motion was removed as it was not necessary.

Sheri passed out flyers from beads etc. with information about an upcoming Czech bead event.

Our next UFO night will be held June 12th from 6:30 to 9:00 pm at our usual meeting place. The June meeting is June 24th 7:00-9:00 pm.

The June project will be a leather project by Diane Miller.

Show and Tell was followed by a fringed peyote pendant project taught by Sheri. Kits were proved to our guests so that they could get a running start to learn about beading with our group. Thank you Sheri for a fun project!
