If you love beads and beading too, join us at 7 pm the 3rd Tuesday monthly, except December and January in the Ray Taylor Meeting Room of St. Luke's Quakertown Hospital. A Holiday Party is held in January. If weather is questionable, when the Quakertown schools close due to weather conditions, we cancel our meeting. Check here for more information if that should happen.
Every meeting includes show and tell, where members share their most recent projects. We also have a speaker or a demonstration or a special project at each meeting. The Bead Society has an extensive library of beading books which members may borrow free of charge.
