Meetings and Events

The San Diego Bead Society meets the third Saturday of each month at the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center.  From 10:00-10:30 A.M., we have a half-hour of refreshments and socializing, and the meeting lasts from 10:30 A.M. to about 12:00 noon.

At each meeting, we host a dynamic program speaker, who presents a lecture and slide show about her or his work.  Past speakers from 2018, for instance, have included Nancy Cain, Helena Tang-Lim, Betty Stephan, Kinga Nichols, Amy Katz, Melinda Barta, Nichole Starman Melanie Potter, and Cynthia Rutledge.

For an inside look at who will be speaking each month, please see the This Month’s Program page, and for details about our past guests, please see the Past Meetings, Speakers, and Events page.

Meeting these talented artists and luminaries of the beading world is one of the highlights of our monthly programs!
