Beer & Beadz – October 2017

October’s Beer & Beadz was hosted by Kirsten at her Ladner home studio.  The turnout was once again good and the appy’s plentiful.

There was no theme this time instead Kirsten asked people who attended the recent Ablaze event at the Terminal City Co-op, to bring their purchased and created beads with them for Show & Tell.

Kirsten also did a Show & Tell on her “recycled beads”.  These are beads made from wine bottles and other used beverage bottles.  Al demonstrated how he cuts the bottles to make usable sizes for lampworking and Kirsten demonstrated making a bead.  While we’re not sure of the COE, these beads will be annealed the same as 104 for now.

It was also an opportunity for members to pick up Bling postcards to handout for the upcoming event.  They look great!  Thanks Susan O. for your time and efforts creating these cards and the other advertising media for this event.

As always, we had a bead exchange.

Because we have our Bling event in November, we will not be having a Beer & Beadz.  Our next B & B will be our annual Christmas party hosted by Kerry Caron.
