You can now arrange for small group/friend classes with Andrea. Click the button below to pick your technique. Review our class descriptions here
Naturally, we all need to be doing the same technique in class. Class sizes are held in my cozy home studio, and limited to 4 people at any sitting. Private bead shopping during class hours too!
About Class Cancellations:
We understand that every once in a while "schtuff happens" that may make you need to cancel attending your fantastic class. We're sorry that these types of things insist on interfering with your beading world and please know that we understand and will certainly miss you in class.
So here's what happens if (gasp!) - you (or we) need to cancel a class:
In order to compensate for our teacher's professional time and travel fees, class fees cannot be refunded. We will however, happily reschedule you into an alternate class date or time as long as you give us a full 24 hours advanced notice.
Now in the rare event that we would need to cancel a fantastic class on you, say, for low attendance (rare), bad weather (like, we fear for your safety), or some other Act of God (like when Andrea went brain dead and forgot to order the materials beforehand...eh, it happened. ONCE people - ONCE!), then naturally a refund will be granted to you if you can't make the rescheduled date.
We will also be happy to switch you into another class entirely if your beading addiction won't let you wait for the new date. Mostly, we will try our very best to accommodate you.
Class materials, ie: beads and findings should be purchased from Buttercup Beads at time of class. Tools and staples like needles and Fireline may be brought to class. But hold on - if you have been buying your beads regularly from Buttercup, then of course you may bring them to use in class.
The only exception is if a Kit is indicated - then Kits must be purchased for that particular class when stipulated.
You sure can. Just click on the button above to go to the calendar page to schedule your own private one-on-one class. I will then call you to discuss the technique and/or project.
To hold your seat, class fees are due at time of registration and seating is limited. Some of our teachers needs to have a minimum to hold their class. It's also necessary if I need to order materials or make kits for class. Register early to save your place. Register online, or call the store. 610-495-8938
We strongly encourage you to bring your own tools.
We do have a limited number of tools to share - but we like to evaluate and see what you are using - and offer tips and/or suggestions where needed. Naturally we have tools for sale too - and we will always help you choose the perfect fit. We carefully choose which tools we sell, and only carry tools that we would personally use on a daily basis.
For seed beading classes, Fireline and needles are considered a staple - bring your own, or buy some more.
