2020 Shop Hours / Classes / Shows

Shop Covid Update: 
Glass Garden Beads will be open as published. The change is, I can only receive customers as a "In and Out" situation. Yes you can shop, Yes you can ask questions and Yes - Hopefully I can answer them...LOL  What I can't do during this "Pause" time is to allow people to linger at the Beading Table. I know it is not this shop's style and yes it is hard. The bright side to date...I can still be open and receive customers. You can still get your supplies. YES wear a mask and I do have sanitizer.

Groups: YES we will do small groups. 2 to 6 right now is all we do. All you have to do is give me a call at 507-645-0301 and we can set up your time and date as well as share ideas and budget. REMEMBER no teacher fee or space fee to worry about.


Right now we do Table Projects and please give me call so I can have the table prepared. Do you want to learn a specific technique, again give me call I will arrange a learning session. No Fee, just the cost of the supplies.

Interesting Groups for Beaders:

Upper Midwest Bead Society Calendar:  I have decided to attend more of these meetings. I close the shop early and go. It has been so much fun. I felt I was in a hole of being too busy...and by getting going to these meetings I have met wonderful people with very similar interests. I feel excited about the craft again. I'm grateful this group exists and want to encourage others to attend.

If you are in the Rochester Area, here is another group I'd like to check out. The Beader's Society of Southeast MN.
