The Northern Virginia Bead Society

The Northern Virginia Bead Society (NVBS) a Non-Profit organization, was created in February of 1992. Lorraine Morton, who passed away in 2009, was one of the founding 13 members.

Our purpose is to encourage members of the community to appreciate and participate in the visual arts through beads. We endeavor to provide a network for education opportunities and the exchange of ideas about beads and techniques in beading. We sponsor a bead and jewelry Auction (May) and a full scale Bead and Jewelry show (Sept/Oct) every year!  We bring artists from all over the nation to Virginia to speak at meetings and teach workshops. 

The NVBS supports bead related non-profit activities. Members gather annually to make necklaces and earrings for ?Dress For Success? ? a Non-profit organization that provides interview suits, confidence boosts, and career development to low-income women, ?Diva Central? - a local Prom Dress program for teens, The Girl Scouts ? assisting them with badge requirements and community service hours, and most recently, 7000 Bracelets for Hope for the Global Genes project - support for kids suffering from rare diseases and disorders.

JOIN US AT OUR MONTHLY MEETINGS Everyone welcome! Meetings are usually held on the first Thursday of the month at the Vienna Community Center (VCC), 120 Cherry St SE, Vienna, VA. We take a break from our meetings during June, July and August.
