From September to June, meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month.

The location is the Bankers Room at the Centennial Library, Church Street, St. Catharines.  Doors open at 6:30 PM and meetings start promptly at 7:00 PM consisting of announcements, old and new business, show & tell of member’s work, raffle, the evenings’ program, and socializing.

The program can include anything from: trunk shows by outside artists and members, mini workshops to learn a new skill, projects, lectures, demonstrations, and idea exchanges.

The wide range of work that our many talented and creative members bring to show & tell at meetings serves as an inspiration to all beaders.


Niagara Bead Society is open to all those who have an appreciation (either private or professional) of beads, their manufacture techniques, and their application. We welcome all levels of interest and experience - there is a place for everyone. We are always happy to see new faces, so please come join us. You can check us out as a $5 “pay at the door” guest.
