OBS hosted events, workshops and field trips happen almost every month of the year. In addition to helping out at
local bead shows, we organize shopping trips and project trips to local bead stores, bring in visiting instructors as well
as hosting our own beading workshops.
Spring Bead Retreat at Tulakogee Conference Center on Lake Ft. Gibson March 17-19
The OBS Bead Retreats focus on casual fun, friendship
and BEADING. This year we have a special guest teacher,
Kelli Burns, and you can find all about her project here.
Your bead retreat fee of $150
($170 for non-members) is all
inclusive...there is nothing to
buy at Tulakogee. All meals
and drinks are included. Some
of us bring snacks to share for
the midnight beading snack
attacks. You may bring your
own drink cup if you wish.
There will be patterns shared with you and a project
needs sheet distributed but feel free to bring your own
kits and projects if you desire. Many do. Again, this
weekend is all about friendship, relaxation and beading.
It's bead all you want, at your own pace. There are no
theft problems at the camp. You can leave your projects
and beads set up when you leave the room for bed.
Except for Saturday, we don't feel the need to work on
the same projects. Most of us will be doing Kelli's project
on Saturday but you don't need to participate if you
don't feel like it. If you need help, we have several
qualified bead instructors to help you. Just ask us!
Rooms have a spacious shower and
separate toilet room for privacy.
There are no TVs. WiFi is "spotty" in
this location. Food is very basic but
the view is spectacular! Deer often
come down in the fall to visit.
Bring your CDs for music!
Lights brought from home are necessary for beading
Tulakogee is a Christian
establishment. Please behave
appropriately. No alcohol/illegal
Don't forget your medications! Many of us bring
our own blankets and beading chairs although a
coverlet for the bed is furnished. Sheets and
pillow are furnished. Remember, you must bring
some type of beading light.
Arrival time: 3 p.m. Friday. Departure Sunday 3 p.m.
Dining is serve yourself buffet
style and sit wherever you
wish. Most of us try to sit at a
different table each meal in
order to talk to everyone!
