Remember: Glass Garden Beads has moved to Faribault, MN. Glass Garden Beads is a bead shop that carries a large selection of Czech Glass Beads, Seed Beads, Tools, Supplies, Wire, Leather, Thread and of course our Creative Bead Kits which we market in the shop and online nationally. A plus to visiting the shop, is the pricing structure is set up as an outlet. That means all our bead products, tools, supplies and select kits are 25% OFF DAILY. We have a small team so if you are making a special trip...Give us a call...just in case it might be one of those days.
Let's talk about CLASSES: Yes we do them all the time, I choose to do Customer Driven Class Schedules. The customer tells me what they want to learn, stitches, basics or a kit and we set up a time. It can be 1 or 6, doesn't matter. There is not a class teaching fee. This technique is called "Casual Learning". I will get you started, and when the student/s are ready to practice or continue, I go on to do my work in the shop. All my students need to do is say...help and I'm there for them. Yes I will schedule traditional classes, then a instructor fee is implemented, and a topic is established and the class will have their own instructor with no outside interruptions. Questions? Always give me a call... 507-645-0301. Suz
Groups - YES and we love them. Give me a call and we will put together a project that fits your group. 507-645-0301
Thursdays are BEAD NIGHT! 5 - 8 PM
OPEN TABLE: MEANS NO GROUPS ARE SCHEDULED and anyone can walk-in and ask for a project and be seated at the table.
Groups who have scheduled an appointment will take precedent to seating and helper time.
