We Downsized, Changed our Business Direction and Moved Downstairs and are now a "Tiny Shop"!
Glass Garden Beads and Brigg Evans Textile Design are marketeers and producers of bead and textile kits for the Hobby Industry. We create and process in the Bachrach Building in Historic Downtown Faribault, MN.
We market online and have changed our Business Platform from RETAIL to SERVICE, TEACHING AND DESIGN. As well as growing our kit hobby business we are growing our teaching opportunities and classes, we still do repairs and yes you can make a purchase of Seed Beads, Delica Beads and of course our kits. I classify our "Tiny Shop" as a Stitching Shop. We focus and specialize in "Off-Loom" Beading as well as Textile Stitch Embellishing.
With this change came downsizing and a move to the Lower Level of the Bachrach Building. You can access us via the elevator or stairs.
We are a casual hobby business so always check our Hours Page to see what kind of schedule the week holds. Never hesitate to contact me: 507-330-1367 Suz.
Meet the team!
Suz Klumb / Store Owner/Kit Creator/Textile Designer.
I absolutely love creating bead and textile kits as well as textiles for the home furnishing industry. This bead business originated with Catherine "Cathy" Collison 26 years ago in Northfield, MN and in 2012, I started investing in Glass Garden Beads. In 2015 I did a buyout and moved the business to its current location. In 2021 Brigg Evans Designs (my serti batik design line) entered the business in the form of kit yardage and small textile/bead mix kits.
Jillian Steger / Design and Technology Assistant. 2023

Jillian loves the outdoors, reading and has a creative energy that never lets her sleep! Jillian and I often find ourselves in a tug-of-war over color choices...LOL...Why? you might ask - because we are so extremely good at it and neither wants to give in. Jillian was very instrumental in the creative development of the new Website as well as helping with the addition of our NEW Color Pallet Line!
Sally Herr / Kit design Production and Projects.
Sally is a lifetime hobbiest and a past business owner so Sally is a great helper and advisor. Sally is a true bead enthusiast. She is often bringing new projects and beads to my attention. Last but not least, Sally stitches all the designs for kit production and display. It is wonderful to have Sally as one of our team.
