I am writing on behalf of the Bead Society of Greater New York to invite you and your members to join us at our upcoming World of Beads VIII in New York City (Friday – Sunday, June 19-21, 2009) at the Fashion Institute of Technology – John E. Reeves Great Hall, located at West 28th St. (between 7th and 8th Avenues), NYC.
This three-day juried exhibit is being presented by our Society in honor of our 20th Anniversary! We will feature the unique beadwork of our incredibly talented members spanning the 20 years of our organization’s existence. On display will be over 200 pieces from our previous World of Beads exhibits held at the American Craft Museum from 1992 to 2004 – ranging from beaded jewelry to beaded objects d’art, as well as over 55 newly submitted works. FREE Mini-workshops and beadwork demonstrations will be presented throughout the event. Other activities include vendors, raffles and a children’s beading table.
The Bead Society of Greater New York is delighted to offer a $1 discount on the $5 admission fee to your members upon presentation of a current Membership Card or the attached flier.
Attached is the Event flier which may be distributed to your membership and/or posted on your website. For further information, please visit our website, http://www.nybead.org
