Started by a group of mid-coast beaders, the Maine Bead Society (MBS) has grown to include folks from all over the state with a shared love and variety of interests in beads. With abilities ranging from novice to highly experienced,our group includes stitchers, stringers, wire workers, embroiderers, and braiders, to name just some of the specialties within the membership. All types of beaders of age eighteen and over are welcome and invited to join us. No matter what your level of expertise is (including none!), we encourage you to bring your love of beads and join us as we create a statewide organization to encourage the art of beadwork.
