May 18, 2013
Diana Friedberg, producer of the multi-award winning documentary series World on a String will share exciting details of her beading discoveries and adventures with the Maasai tribe in Kenya. See our programs blog (link above) for more description of this exciting presentation.
In conjunction with next month's program, SDBS is participating in a Bead Inspiration Challenge. Kits were sold at the April meeting consisting of an assortment of African beads from Kenya. Finished pieces must include only materials available to our sister beaders in Kenya: the enclosed beads, fiber, seed beads, wire and stringing material. All profits from sale of the kits will go to the Salvation Army Worth Program, Elgon District, Kenya. All completed necklaces will be displayed at our Bead Bazaar in August and pictures of all entries will be sent to the beaders in Kenya to lend inspiration in their beading. These women provide food and educations to their families through their beading micro-business.

We meet early on Saturday morning and good snacks add to the pleasure of socializing with our beading buddies and listening to stimulating programs.

To be eligible for the drawing, bring beautiful beads left over from a project or that special bead you bought in a moment of insanity that just isn't your color or style. Drop it in the jar, take a ticket and you may be this year's lucky winner!
