Club Bead 2019 is on the calendar! Join us on February 7, 2019, for three glorious days of classes at Club Med, Sandpiper Bay, in Port St. Lucie, Florida. This will be our third year at the venue. It’s a great spot for beading, and an amazing place for vacation – bring your family, significant other, or just yourself. You can come early, stay late, to enjoy the warm Florida Weather. Club Med is an all-inclusive resort so all you need to bring is you (and a beading mat!).

Space at Club Bead is limited to 45 participants to insure a wonderful learning experience. Registration now open. Please email Gwen Gordon for a registration form. Note: place not reserved until $100.00 deposit is received with the balance due in three payments.

Club Med Sandpiper Bay
Club Med Sandpiper Bay is located near Port St. Lucie, Florida, about two hours north of Miami. Sandpiper Bay is an all-inclusive resort, meaning that your full accommodations are included in your registration fee. Room, all meals, all beverages (including alcohol!), plus access to most of the club’s amenities, which include a wide variety of activities, such as golf, Beach Volleyball, Tennis, Sailing, Kayaking, Yoga and so much more. The facility offers state-of-the-art equipment, top professional instructors, and exceptional group lessons for all skill levels. It’s the perfect place to relax and indulge in a few guilty pleasures with friends or family.
Club Bead Schedule and participation
Club Bead classes take place over three days – Friday, February 8, through Sunday, February 10. Students are divided up into groups, with each group taking classes from each instructor on rotating days, so everyone takes all three classes. Registration takes place on Thursday, February 7; students can also make kit selections at that time. Note that kit costs are set by the instructors. Each instructor usually sends out a list of kit components in advance, in case students want to bring their own supplies.
Spouses, partners or guests are welcome to join students for a fun and relaxing retreat without classes. They will pay a reduced rate, which does not include class fee. Otherwise, they have full access to the Club Med facilities.
