July Make and Take Sessions 

Due to the popularity of these sessions, we will now be offering a project every Monday evening at 6:30pm and the third Saturday of every month at 1:30. There is no registration fee for these sessions, just the cost of the materials. We do ask, however, that you sign-up in advance so we know that you'll be joining us!


Summer Breeze!                                        Bead Breakout is having another       Bead Challenge/Silent Auction!


It is warm and beautiful in Rochester, but in a few months it will inevitably turn cold again. For those of us with heat and roofs over our heads, this is an unwelcome and unfortunate change in weather. However, there are many people in Rochester who are less fortunate and have no shelter during the winter months. Bead Breakout is once again having a Bead Challenge/Silent Auction this summer to raise funds for the House of Mercy Shelter in Rochester.
