Berkshire Beaders


A beading group based in Reading, Berkshire, who meet regularly once a month and for occasional workshops.

Berkshire Beaders UFO Night September 2010

We thought that anybody who thinks they might come along to Berkshire Beaders one Monday night would be interested to see what we get up to.

The September meeting was a 'UFO' night, that is; unfinished objects. Some of the objects can be seen in the photographs. As usual some are projects from previous meetings and some are members own choice.

An extra bonus this month was a visit from a bead supplier, Cherry, who brought a dazzling array of semi-precious bead strands as you can see. Many of us were tempted and many of us gave in! We hoped to have Beadbase of Basingstoke in November, but they are unfortunately unable to come this year.

If any of you are interested in Berkshire Beaders and you are going to the Bead Fair at its new venue in Uxbridge, come and see us. We shall have a demonstration table with information about what we are up to and examples of previous projects to encourage you.

We are always happy to see new faces. Beginners and experienced beaders are always welcome.
