Our next meeting will be held at 7:00 PM on Monday evening, March 4, 2019 in the second floor Community Room at the Waldemere Fire Station at 2070 Waldemere St. in Sarasota, FL.

Here is a Google Map link with the location: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Sarasota+County+Fire+Department+Station+2/@27.3135246,-82.5323011,15z/data=!4m8!1m2!2m1!1sfire+station+near+Waldemere+Street,+Sarasota,+FL!3m4!1s0x88c3405b3fb7fde7:0x706a968f3e07601d!8m2!3d27.3189581!4d-82.5281383?hl=en&authuser=1.

When parking at the fire station – please be aware that the wire fence enclosed area is only for firefighters–do not park in that area. If the lot is full, after 6:00 PM you can park in the lot of the medical office building just to the south of the fire station.

Minutes from our February 4th meeting will be e-mailed with the meeting reminders. To expedite our Business Meeting, minutes are not read, although members will be asked for any additions/corrections–and for approval of the minutes as written. Our business meeting will begin at 7 PM, followed by the presentation of our beading project.

Our March beading project is the "Rolling Rivoli” pendant and earring set designed and taught by Jennifer Wiles. A materials list and photos are shown below. Jennifer will have kits available for $25 at the meeting in at least 10 different colorways. If you do not wish to do the project, you are welcome to bring your own beading projects to work on during the evening.

See you at the meeting!
