Life on Planet BeadFX is special! You never know what will come up, to challenge the crones and one troll, who work there.
But we’re always on the case! Do you want to drop by to shop? No problem! How about taking a class? Again, we’re there for you! You don’t live in the city, or even in the province, or country? We deliver. You live in the city, but prefer not to drive? You can order on-line.
Planet BeadFX is a place of sharing, caring, and learning! We love what we do, and it shows! Just ask us a question. If we don’t know the answer, we’ll be happy to direct you to someone who might be able to help.
We have tons of workshops, in a diverse range of techniques. What are you looking for? Chances are we might already have something scheduled. But if not, you might be able to arrange a private class. If you want traditional stringing, bead weaving, and looming techniques, we have classes in that! But what about metalwork, enamelling, lampwork beads, metal clay, polymer clay, mixed media, and bead crochet? If that doesn’t interest you, how about workshops in wirework, micro-knotting, tambour beading, stone drilling and bead embroidery? We have instructors that will show you the proper way to do things, and then there’s a resident muse (ahem, Moi!), who will help you to break some of the rules!.
We even bring in out-of-town instructors, for those of you, looking for even more of a challenge!
I couldn’t even guess how many collective years of experience, our gaggle of staff and instructors, have to offer our customers. The mind boggles! But wouldn’t it be interesting to find out?
I know, I know, Planet BeadFX staff have been known to enable your addictions, but what about all the free stuff we offer? Open Beading Night, on Wednesday evenings, and Bead Tea, on Thursday afternoons. On top of that, we post free “Inspirations” on a weekly basis! You are shown photos of the projects, given easy-to-follow instructions, and we even tell you what you need to buy. Isn’t that fun? If you’re stuck for ideas, you can visit the “Inspirations” page, and browse eye candy, until you find something that twigs your interest. We may no longer carry all of the supplies for older projects, but we would be happy to suggest substitutions.
I haven’t even started on the stock! But if you’re reading this blog post, you are probably aware of all of the products that we carry. If not, you can find them in our on-line catalogue.
Planet BeadFX is simply out-of-this-world! Drop by, or browse on-line. The crones, and one troll, are always ready to be of service. By the way, did you know that we have a sale on, until the end of the month? Everybody loves a sale, especially one in January!! Think of it this way, beads are definitely cheaper than therapy!
