June, the month we have all waited for – long, warm, sunny days, upcoming holidays, leisure time with friends and family and being creative. Whether stringing, bead embroidery, Kumihimo, chainmail, crochet/knitting with beads, or tackling one of the many beading techniques to explore and challenge ourselves leisurely!
I have an opportunity for you – join the Grand River Bead Society Board of Directors! The roles of Secretary, Membership Chair and Bead Fair are open and need to be filled at our our Annual Meeting on June 19th. Being a member of the Board provides many opportunities in directing the future of GRBS. Planning, organizing, programming events – skills we all use everyday – mostly without realizing we do. The GRBS Board is a collaborative group. Please seriously consider lending your expertise. We can’t continue to provide monthly meetings without the direction of a Board to lead.
Annual Membership fees are now due for the 2023-2024 year of $50 and cover September 1st to August 31st. PayPal, CC and if in Canada e-transfer is available. Head over to the Membership page on the website grbs.ca.
In addition to the June 19th Annual meeting there will be an opportunity for CURRENT, PAID, GBRS MEMBERS, to have a half table – at no fee – to De-Stash any jewellery supplies no longer needed. First come first served for a half table. No supplies to De-Stash – no worries – you can provide a good home to goodies available from others, in other words “bring your money” to buy!
Looking forward to seeing everyone and renewing friendships!
