MAY Newsletter

Our website is now live and you can pay for classes and whatever other items you need.  Don't forget that you get 10% off all of your purchases on class day.  Remember that if we don't have more than 1 or 2 sign ups for a class, we may cancel a class (especially if the teacher is driving a long way to teach the class). If the teacher works at the shop, we'll probably do the class anyway, even if we only have one student, but some of our teachers require at least 2 or 3 students.  We are still fussing with the new point of sale system in the shop and the reward things, so please bear with us.  On line site is  www.bead-therapy.com. I'm still trying to get all the pictures up in all the appropriate places.   Visit us!!  On line, or in the store!!

Don't forget open Bead Night every thursday night where you can bring whatever you are working one and just bead with fellow bead lovers or if you are stuck, we can help.  It's a lot of fun and keeps us off the streets.....

And you know, I think I'm going to start doing my newsletters in Word and copy and pasting it into this format.  This is killing me slowly......It makes no sense sometimes!!  Pardon the mistakes.  I just wanted to get it out so you can see the classes available now!!

We have a couple of new kits, but I'm working on more.
