Announcing the SJBS 2021 Annual Bead Retreat
Join us for a weekend of fun and beading at historic Pendle Hill (45 minutes outside of Philly in Wallingford PA)
Proof of vaccination or proof of a Covid-19 test within 3 days of retreat that tested negative. All registrants not vaccinated must wear a mask at all times.
Betty Stephan's beading classes are focused on learning but at the same time are relaxed and a lot of fun! Her years of beading and teaching experience and the detailed, illustrated instructions provide the guidance needed to finish her beautiful class projects. She has won numerous international awards for her bead embroidered collars including BeadDreams, Bead Star and Battle of the Beadsmith. Betty’s work has been published in several books and magazines. Betty teaches throughout the year, from Detroit to France- and anywhere in between! Of course these days, Zoom classes have taken the place of travelling. Hopefully in person classes will be resuming soon. When not travelling or designing jewelry in her Western New York studio, Betty and her husband travel around the country in their little teardrop camper - fully equipped to bead as she goes!
