From September to June, the Toronto Bead Society usually meets on the second Wednesday of every month. 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.

The TBS Bag of Beads Challenge is back!

What's in the TBS Bag of Beads Challenge?

We will find out at the November meeting when the Bags are handed out. All we can tell you is that we will include (but not be limited to) small beads, larger beads maybe some crystals, perhaps some semi-precious stones, and most importantly a "stumper".  What's a stumper?  It is an oh-so-frustrating item that has no hole, is definitely not a bead, and makes you think in new and creative ways about your beading.

How does the Bag of Beads Challenge work? 

There are only three rules: 

If you are a beginner and a bit intimidated by the challenge, remember one thing, EVERYONE who has participated in this challenge was a BEGINNER at one time. This is a fun opportunity to challenge yourself, and just maybe surprise yourself!

Remember, there are only a limited number of bags available!
