No better time than now to catch up on some extra beading. We are offering in store classes as well as virtual classes via Zoom. Zoom is a free virtual conference service that will allow you to safely take a beading class while in the comfort of your own home. Our zoom classes are fully interactive so you will be able to work directly with your teacher. We are adding classes quickly based on request and requesting that you sign up early so we can make arrangements to get your kits or needed products to you. See below for class details, dates and times. Try a class or two and brush up your skills during this stay in place order. Have you been waiting for a particular class to be scheduled? Don't wait! Send us an email and request a class. You get to pick the date and the time and we will add it to the calendar.
