We are celebrating the festive season with a special day in the store.  Meet our teachers, play with some products and learn a new technique or two!


Wire and Beaded Tree

Nancy will show you how to make a beaded Christmas tree with wire.

You’ll want to wear it as pendant or feature it as an ornament.

Time:  11am – 2pm (three hours)


Festive Earrings

Melanie will show you how to make festive ball earrings.  There are several ideas for this project and Melanie will show you several versions.

Time:  1pm – 4pm (three hours)


Beaded Snowflake

Laurie will demonstrate our fabulous snowflake frames.

You’ll make one too!  They look gorgeous on a tree or as a sun catcher.

Time: 12 – 3pm (three hours)


1st Stitch and Bitch

Emma will be hosting a casual gathering in the classroom.  Bring an unfinished project and enjoy knitting and crocheting with others.  Emma will be happy to demonstrate a stitch you might like to learn and she can help you with problem projects too!

Time:  11am – 2pm (three hours)


Please let us know if you are attending by phoning the store or emailing.

We cannot guarantee you a time or spot for each demo, but we will keep a sign up sheet at each table so you can sign in and then wander through the store.

The John Bead Outlet now has a classroom available for workshops.  It comfortably seats 12 students.  We are keen to share this space with enthusiastic teachers looking for a great location to host a workshop. We are going to have two unique options for the space.


We will have John Bead Outlet exclusively sponsored classes that will include class kits we create and sell.  Teachers will be compensated by John Bead to instruct these classes.


We will also support workshops which teachers market, promote and sell themselves.  These classes will receive sponsorship in the form of the space and instructors will be responsible for collecting their own fees and marketing these workshops.

We would like to feature classes that use items in our store; beads, crystals, wire, stringing, rosary making, costume making and more.

If either of these opportunities appeals to you, please send me a brief note with your class ideas.  Please include a few sample photos of your proposed class projects and some references to where you are already teaching.

Workshops/classes can take place between the hours of

Monday – Friday 11-7:30          Saturday – Sunday 11-4
