What's New!


Stacie Baumeister, the owner of QuiltWorks Northwest and the new owner of BEADS & BEYOND, has been working double time to get the new store open!!  All of the staff of QuiltWorks Northwest have been also getting ready to meet and greet all of the beaders and the staff from BEADS & BEYOND misses all of you. 

The  Fall newsletter has been mailed (on September 16) and registration is scheduled for Tuesday, September 30th!!  Plus you can also find the entire newsletter on line.  Registration is scheduled to be held at the new location but the final permits have not been issued yet.  It may still be just tables in the classrooms "to be" but we are all working hard to keep things marching along.  Please be sure to check back here to reconfirm that registration will be held at the new location  Click on this link for the map!

Registration will be the same as you are all used to - but the next one will most likely be on-line the way that QuiltWorks Northwest does registration.  So when you register for the BEADS & BEYOND classes you will find a new line on the registration form for you to give us your email to subscribe to the QuiltWorks Northwest newsletter which is also done on-line.  The first class is scheduled for October 7!

Class Samples may also be found on-line.  Because the new store is not yet all set up for you to come see the samples the website is the best place to check.  Once the store is set up you wil be able to find samples in the store too.

Supply Lists can now also be found on-line!  Another easy change that many of you have been asking for so you can check the supplies easily!  You will find them on the BEADS & BEYOND website soon!

We all are looking forward to a great fall and to seeing you soon!
