From September to June, the Toronto Bead Society usually meets on the second Wednesday of every month at Ryerson University, 380 Victoria Street (East of Yonge, Between College and Dundas). Please check our Meeting Schedule for actual dates.
If you like to learn, look and talk about beads, we invite you to join our society.
In Memory of Cathy Lampole
Catherine Marie "Cathy" Lampole
1953 - 2016
It is with profound sadness that we announce the untimely but peaceful passing of Cathy Lampole (That Bead Lady) on February 2, 2016.
For more than two decades Cathy was a creative and talented designer...a true visionary! Her passion for seed beads, sparkling Swarovski crystals and pearls has left us with an inspiring body of work that will be appreciated and recreated many times over through her patterns, for generations to come.
Cathy is survived by her loving husband Bill and their sons, Jeff and David. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends and the greater creative community.There will be a private funeral service entrusted to www.roadhouseandrose.com and a 'Celebration of Life' memorial day at the shop on Saturday, March 5th.
Cathy LOVED The Beatles almost as much as beads, so these words seem appropriate to close this notice...
"All you need is love...and some really nice beads!"
