2015 Commemorative Bead

ISGB is pleased to announce the theme for our ISGB 2015 Gathering - Forging Connections :: Celebrating Community. As we strive for growth, expanded creativity, and excellence in all things glass, we realize the need to look beyond the bead. We feel Forging Connections :: Celebrating Community is the perfect theme for next year's Gathering as we explore our new vision and expand the outreach to our many creative partners.

We are excited to announce that the ISGB Gathering XXIII will be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, July 15 - July 19, 2015.  (classes start prior to the 15th)

Donations

The International Society of Glass Beadmakers (ISGB) is the premier and foremost
organization for the promotion, education, and appreciation of the art of glass
beadmaking for wearable, sculptural, and functional art. We were an important
catalyst for the contemporary glass movement in America and in just two decades,
we have become a worldwide organization with over 1,400 members. Thousands
of beadmakers in the world have ISGB to thank for their safe studios, available
classes, supplies, and profitable businesses. 

ISGB continues to raise the bar for excellence in glass bead artistry by providing
juried shows which become worldwide exhibits, educating our beadmakers, providing
a strong voice for glass beads in the art community, sharing new techniques, and
providing scholarships to our annual conference, The Gathering.

As we preserve the rich traditions of glass beadmaking, while encouraging development,
education, and collecting, additional funding will be required. Our annual convention
and membership dues no longer meet the financial needs for all of the programs and
services that we offer. Please consider donating to ISGB. Your contribution will enable
our organization to continue moving forward, meeting the challenges of the future, and
strengthening our drive of the contemporary glass movement.

Thank you in advance for your generous support.

ISGB is a 501(c)3 organization. Your contribution may be tax deductible to the extent
allowed by law. Please consult your tax preparer.

Please note that you do not need a PayPal account in order to donate.
