What's happening at the Bead Society?

Check back regularly to see what's going on at the bead society
All BSV monthly meetings start at 10am. After socialising for a while, we have a short update on what's happening at 10.30am, then usually start the business of the day around 11am.
Monthly meetings are held at
  • Carnegie Library and Community Centre, 7 Shepparson Avenue, Carnegie, VIC (Melway Map 68 J4). It's a short walk from Carnegie Station. Meetings are on the 2nd Sunday of every month except January and November - if this clashes with the Expo weekend)


No meetings in January: The three day Members' Retreat is held then.

No meetings in November: Expo is usually held on the 2nd weekend of November. 


At Carnegie we are in the Boyd room, which is on the first floor (lift available). There is good access to public transport and ample untimed Sunday parking in the car park off Shepparson St, or in side streets.

Before 10.30 am a member operates the door, after that please use the doorbell for access.


The library does not open to the public until midday so access is easier before 10.30 am.


Monthly workshops at Carnegie all cost $20 for a two hour session and must be booked in advance. Check the classes on offer as these are updated when available, running 12.30 - 2.30pm. Workshops are not

mandatory, just an opportunity to extend your skills or learn a new technique. 


* Always bring along your usual kit  to meetings if you are not sure what to work on. 

** There are always lots of other beaders working on their own projects and there to lend a hand. Traders usually in attendance too so you can purchase extra supplies.



  • (*) usual kit comprises, beading needle, prefered beading thread, beading mat or board, scissors and any thing else that helps you work
  • (**) bring along your beading, work on any unfinished projects or get help from a fellow member if you are stuck on something.
