Annual Ornament Workshop

Annual Ornament Workshop

Join us for a day of beading, relaxation, good food & laughter as we celebrate this season of love, joy and peace with our annual ornament workshop.  

When: Choice of 2 Saturdays - October 3 (10-5) OR October 10 (10-5)

We also offer a "workshop in a box."  For those of you who can't attend one of our workshops and don't want to wait until these kits are available next summer, you can purchase the workshop in a box.  Your care package will include the bead kit, printed instructions, snacks and the goody bag of handmade gifts.  These boxes will be offered through mid-October and are limited in number.

In this all-inclusive workshop, we will provide:

  • your beading kit (beads, needles, thread & glass ball ornament)
  • lighting & work surface
  • snacks, beverages & lunch
  • as always for our special events, you'll receive a goody bag with items handcrafted by Melissa & Kelly just for you

Please bring:

  • scissors & any beading tools you can't live without
