Our NEW "Tiny Shop"
From Retail to Service/Design
We moved to a smaller space in our same building.
Glass Garden Beads and Brigg Evans Textile Design is now a "Tiny Shop". We changed from a retail business to a service business, offering design, repair, classes, teaching and our online marketing of bead and textile kits. Our bead inventory will consist of seed beads and delicas as well as the Diakonos Leather kits plus our GGB kits and Brigg Evans Textile kits. You will be able to access us in the Lower Level in the Bachrach Building via the stairs or elevator. We are still in the same building just downstairs.
GROUPS: YES limited to 6 seats. / Just give me a call and reserve the space and pick out the project you want to do. 507-330-1367

The punch card allows you time at the table during posted shopping hours. 10 punches for $25, 5 punches for $15 (OR) If you just want to drop in and be with a friend for the day to chat and bead the cost is $5 per person. No time limitations within the posted hours for the day. Always call ahead to make sure a chair is available. 507-330-1367. The Table Fee is waived if you want to purchase our kits or projects and sit at the table to work on them. Punch cards can be used for the teaching fee on "Table Projects".

Interesting Groups for Beaders to check out:
Upper Midwest Bead Society Calendar: The group is a great social group and now with covid have still remained active with its members by presenting interesting virtual meeting opportunities. Fun topics. Feel free to check them out. I really started to get involved with their meetings so I'm looking forward to return to that close and in-person time. They are a great group with always interesting topics.
If you are in the Rochester Area, here is another group I'd like to check out. The Beader's Society of Southeast MN.
LOOSE BEAD SOCIETY OF GREATER MILWAUKEE: Beaders are happy interesting people. Why? They love what they do and they come from all vocations with a artist flair! So true for this group!
