pre-strung with 120 size 6o seed beads in pattern and colors of choice. String beads directly on the spool before coming to the meeting. DO NOT cut the thread. (it also helps to use a dab of clear nail polish on the end of thread before stringing the beads to stiffen the cord)

-Bead mat


Hello and Happy Fall!

Get your bead mats ready!

We will be holding a small, in-person, CT Bead Society Meeting on Sunday, November 1, at the Guilford Community Center from 12 to 2 pm. A short business meeting will be held prior to the Simple Bead Crochet Necklace lesson.

We will be meeting on the first floor in the large meeting room. Even with this large room, we are limited to the first 19 members that sign up by e-mailing Anne at

All attendees must wear masks at all times while at the meeting.

We will have socially distant seating available. This is a large room so there is plenty of space.

We hope to see you for the simple bead crochet necklace!

As a courtesy and for the safety of others, please do not come to the meeting if you do not feel well on Sunday Nov. 1.

See you soon!
