Community Outreach

Naval Hospital

The San Diego Bead Society successfully held the first bead clinic offered at the Naval Medical Center San Diego on March 31, 2017. We were glad to provide participants a distraction from daily stressors and a fun and creative experience through the joy of beading. If you’d like to know more about this or other SDBS community outreach events, please contact us at

Rady Children’s Hospital

For several years, the SDBS has been partnering with Rady Children’s Hospital to provide an enjoyable beading experience for hospitalized children and their families. Members volunteer to share their expertise and love of beads, assisting in the creation of lovely bracelets and necklaces.
