Beads of Courage desperately needs glass beads!! Their supply going to participating hospitals is

***** COMPLETELY OUT !!! *****

They are very anxious to receive glass beads from beadmakers like us.

The hospitals give ordinary glass beads to the children for most events in their treatment, but when they experience an especially difficult day they get to choose a handmade bead!

Please look through your bead stash and bring as many beads as possible to the March meeting or to Beads by Design if you canít make it to the meeting. Stephanie or Martha will make sure our beads get to BOC.

1/11 Photos for the Southern Flames 2018 Postcard will be taken at the January meeting.  If you didn't bring one to the December meeting, remember to bring a bead!!  (Or send a clear photo on a light gray background).
