Beady Bunch Minutes June 24th, 2014


The meeting was called to order with 13 members and 3 guests present. Lisa gave the  Treasurer’s Report and noted that she has paid the church for the first half of the year, and collected dues from the new members.
 
Old Business:
 
Chris & Lisa gave a report from the Bead Affair committee. The three groups met last Saturday and discussed having a start-up bank account with each of the groups contributing $500. This money will be used for advertising and promoting the event. A motion was made by Lisa that our group would agree to the contribution of $500. Joni seconded it and the vote passed.
 
Bead Retreat, Sept 19th-21st:
 
Chris sent around a sign-up sheet for those that want to attend. There is room for 18 spots for each night and you must give Lisa a check to hold your spot. Please note that your check will be cashed. You will be able to get a refund up until Sept. 1st, if you are unable to attend. There will be exceptions for emergency situations and that shall be decided by the officers. The cost is $34/night for both nights and $39 for one night.
 
UFO Night
Our next UFO night will be July 10th, and regular meeting will be July 22nd. 
 
New Business:
 
Mary Hunter's class will be $20/person and we will need 5 people to attend in order to hold the class. No date is set yet, but will likely be held in the fall. Let Chris or Lisa know if you are interested. Chris has examples of the two projects.

This gorgeous piece will be our featured Project at the May Meeting.  Sheri has provided us with the supply list of things you need to bring to the meeting.

 

From Sheri:
I will be teaching the pendant design, for the May Beady Bunch project.
The supplies needed for this follows…
  • Delica beads (size 11) – 1 or 2 colors needed, small tube, or partial tube of beads will be plenty.
  • Dagger beads, or drop of any kind – 20+ beads needed, depends on how full you want the fringe to be.
  • Thread and needle that you are comfortable working with.
Have an idea what kind of necklace you will be putting the pendant on. so you know how large to make the starting tube.
I will attach a link, to the website that was my inspiration.
Thanks.
Sheri
