September starts a new year of exciting events 

Our calendar is your guide to what's up next

May Annual Members Shop & Swap 


Monthly meetings are free to members. See Membership Information Benefits and How to Join for ways to join SJBS.

Guests at in-person membership meetings are asked for a $5 fee for each meeting they attend. Guests are welcome to attend general meetings, workshops, and other events not designated as members-only events. 

If you aren't a member but would like to join our monthly member meetings virtually, contact  coprez1@southjerseybeadsociety.org for the sign-in information. There will not be a guest fee for virtual, but it'll be limited to one guest attendance opportunity. 


Members Corner: Your suggestions for instructors and skills you want to learn in monthly Bead Education meetings are welcome.


As a benefit to members, discounts are available at Bead Shop Vendor Members
