GENERAL MEETING, TUESDAY, SEPT. 27TH

IN THE DANCE STUDIO - A BEADING ACTIVITY MEETING!

The September meeting will be held at the Multnomah Arts Center (7688 SW Capitol Hwy, Portland, OR 97219)

We will meet in the dance Studio down the hall beside the Auditorium, which is our normal meeting spot.  Ask at the front desk for directions.

Because this room has better natural light, we will be having a beading night to design and begin work on a beaded name tag.  Be thinking about what you want to do, and come prepared to design and begin, or work on, if you have already started, an awesome beaded name tag!  The PBS board will bring bead grids, and books with alphabets to use in your design work.  This can be all beads or mixed media; so get out your designing caps and have fun!. 

Materials members should bring include:

  • designing materials like colored pencils, markers, pencil and eraser
  • embroidery base material like felt, ultra suede, or heavy interfacing
  • your needles and thread
  • beads and bead tray or bead mat
  • a way of attachment like a pinback or strong magnet

You might also consider using other materials like shibori, felt, ribbon, wrapped wire, special items of personal significance to incorporate into your design.

Any type of beadwork may be used like loomwork, herringbone stitch, peyote stitch, bead embroidery or even some good glue!

We hope to display the name tags at the November meeting .  No rules, just lots of fun.

Early-Bird Beading:  5:00pm to 6:15pm

The September meeting will be held at the Multnomah Arts Center (7688 SW Capitol Hwy, Portland, OR 97219).
