May Bead Retreat 2010

Kansas City Bead Society   RETREAT!  


We  have three spaces left for our May Bead Retreat. We would love to have you join us for this opportunity to be with JEAN CAMPBELL for a whole weekend. 
Our bead retreat is  Friday, May 14th (3 pm) through Sunday, May 16th (11 am) at The Barn B & B in Valley Falls, Ks.  Valley Falls is about 1 and 1/2 hours north and west of KC.  Jean, will teach 3 projects during the retreat. The registration form is attached below.  
Jean, a nationally recognized bead artist, is an editor of Beadwork magazine. She has written and edited several beading books and contributes to the Beading Daily web site.  Several of us attended a recent class taught by Jean in St. Louis. We found her to be a warm, fun and an informative teacher.  She was full of tips and ideas to improve our beading skills. The confirmed retreat attendees have chosen three (3) projects to be taught during the weekend retreat (see attached photos. Other colorways are being developed).  Jean will have books and other kits available if you wish to purchase them at the retreat. 
Your cost for the retreat is based on the number of people in a room plus $275 (this does include the 3 kits).  The rooms that are available each have one king bed, sometimes a mattress can be added, all rooms have private baths.  All meals, from supper on Friday through breakfast on Sunday are included.  Snacks will be available. The grounds at The Barn are beautifully maintained (hopefully the snow will have melted by then) and there are lovely areas to walk or just sit and meditate. This is a smoke free environment.
