AGM, ‘Bedazzelled by Beadsand

Native American Beadwork

St. Peters & Pauls Church Hall, St. George's Way, Standbridge Lane, Wakefield WF2 7NR

NOTE:  Pre-booking for this meeting is essential 

We would like to welcome you & any friends to Wakefield once more, and also invite you to bring with you any beaded item, garment or accessory, (from any period) to show to the assembled members.
Firstly we will have a very brief, informal AGM. The current committee & Chairman are all happy for re-election unless anyone has any objection or would like to offer their services. Another year has passed and we need to bring you all together again to reflect and discuss several matters which require your input, such as financial support for relevant college courses, an exciting conservation item from York Museum which needs our help, and confirmation that you are all still willing to continue our annual patronage of the Leeds-based, Northern Ballet, who have surpassed themselves this season with their brand new productions of ‘The Little Mermaid’ and ‘Jane Eyre’. Their inclusion of our support in every programme, not only promotes the Society but is also a possible means of attracting new members.
Unbelievably, it is ten years since we last brought Mark Sykes to your attention, so it will be especially good to see what new treasures he has added to his collection. He has recently contributed to a ‘Buffalo Bill in Halifax, 1909’ exhibition at the Bankfield Museum too, which in itself, will be worth hearing about while his early American items will be a massive contrast to our mornings’ superficial offerings.
The venue is close to junction 39 on the M1, with ample parking and disabled access all on the level;. Our caterers will be on hand to serve a varied & appetizing buffet-lunch.
As ever, we look forward to seeing you; let’s hope the sun shines!
