The BSV holds monthly meetings (except January or November if it clashes with the Expo). Members can bring along their beading, attend mini workshops, buy supplies from traders, solve their beading problems, and relax with other members.
Members pay an attendance charge of $5.00 to assist with covering costs of venue hire, insurance, tea and coffee supplies. BYO mug. Plenty of food outlets close by, or BYO lunch if desired.
BSV monthly meetings start at 10.00 am. After socialising for a while we have a short update on what's happening, then spend the rest of the day working on projects.
The BSV library is open for members to borrow from between approx. 10.15. am to 12.00 midday.
(Waiting period of three months membership is applicable to new members)
