The Austin Bead Society was formed in October, 1990. The objectives of the Society are to promote education and research regarding beads and bead-related subjects, and to provide support to bead collectors, designers, and enthusiasts.
The Austin Bead Society meets the fourth Monday of the month – from 6:30-8:30pm,
except in May–if the 4th Monday is Memorial Day, then we meet on the 3rd Monday;
and in December, we do not meet.
For the present,
For those who want an in-person meeting, we’re meeting at Austin Bead Gallery Of course, we will be wearing masks. Austin Bead Gallery – 8440 Burnet Rd STE 100A, Austin, TX 78757 Click here to see a map.
