Beaded Bliss in Harrison, OH – Great atmosphere and bead selection, with the most amazing collection of Swarovski crystals I have ever seen. There are tons of classes and I tend to bead here on Wednesday nights, if you wanna stop by! The owner, Cathy, is super talented and friendly and the shop is spacious and inviting. I try to teach here once a month or so and my patterns are available for sale here.
Bead Stash in Kettering, OH – Lovely little shop with a fun atmosphere and great seed bead collection. The lovely owner, Carole Ohl, is a published designer and is knowledgeable and full of smiles. This shop also sells beads on consignment from other beader’s stashes, so you never know what you’ll find! (They also love Zentangle here, if that’s something you’d like to try). I also teach here when I get the chance and Carole sells my patterns as well.
