WHO WE ARE Two groups have partnered together to bring a fun and enjoyable trade show to the Omaha area. These groups are nonprofit organizations who are open to jewelry makers and crafters of all interests and skill levels. We meet monthly to show off our completed endeavors, learn a new technique, get help on a difficult project, or just to socialize and glean creative inspiration from our friends. These groups are committed to donating time and resources to various charity groups, teaching classes and encouraging creativity. We love new members and new ideas.
Midwest Lampworkers Guild Midwest Lampworkers Guild has at its heart glass beads—the making, the detailing, the continued learning—but incorporates other media as well—wire wrapping, stringing/designing, seed beading, and others. Our members are diverse in their creativity and work. The Guild also fundraises for and supports the Beads of Courage program at Children’s Hospital and Medical Center in Omaha and internationally. We meet the second Tuesday of each month. www.midwestlampworkersguild.org
Omaha Beady Bunch The Omaha Beady Bunch was founded in 1997 when a group of women who loved beads and beading decided to organize a “club” and meet monthly. The Omaha Beady Bunch is a non-profit educational organization. It’s purpose is to share beading knowledge and techniques regardless of one’s skill level.
The Omaha Beady Bunch meets monthly on the 4th Tuesday of each month at Saint Andrews Episcopal Church on 84th St & Pacific from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m
The Omaha Beady Bunch sponsors the Edna Perkins Project honoring Veterans and their loved ones annually.
If you love to bead, think you would love to bead, or used to bead, please join us. It is a wonderful group of caring and sharing members that will make you feel at home and welcome! We hope to see you soon.
