BSGC member, Marcia Shori, has volunteered to run the October Bead Challenge. The theme is:
Anything qualifies—jewelry, beads, sculptural pieces—as long as it’s an Ethnic Inspiration.
We are adding a new twist this year. Each bead challenge entry must be accompanied by a treat or snack based on the ethnic group that the entry represents. The challenge is open to any member or non-member living in the Chicagoland area. The challenge is free to members. A fee of $5 per entry is required for non-members. Each person must bring their entry and treat to the meeting. There will be prizes awarded in several categories.
We will advertise in local papers where advertising and calendar listings are free to let the public know that they are welcome to enter. We hope to get our name out there and raise awareness of the BSGC—maybe even get a new member or two! If you know of anyone who might be interested, please let them know. There will be information on our website at bsgc.org.
All entries and treats are due at the start of the October 10 meeting.
Start thinking now on your Ethnic Inspiration for this challenging project.
