Interesting Groups for Beaders:

Upper Midwest Bead Society Calendar:  I have decided to attend more of these meetings. I close the shop early and go. It has been so much fun. I felt I was in a hole of being too busy...and by getting going to these meetings I have met wonderful people with very similar interests. I feel excited about the craft again. I'm grateful this group exists and want to encourage others to attend.

If you are in the Rochester Area, here is another group I'd like to check out. The Beader's Society of Southeast MN.
