Dear Beading Friends,
 

Quote                    “Consideration for others is the basis of a good life, a good society.”

Happy Finter. The Finter 2016 newsletter is available for printing from our website. (Please see the link at the bottom of this page.) There will be some b/w copies available for pick up in the store.  It is important that not only we have your correct e-mail but also that our e-mail address be put on your allowed list. I don’t want you to miss out on monthly updates and specials that will be communicated to you via e-mail.

Please go to our Facebook page and like us. We will be posting information especially for our Facebook fans. Information about trunk shows, including pictures of unpacking and set up are posted on our Facebook page   

Check the events section and the website for special happenings at the store. We had several wonderful trunk shows last season. Many of our events this season are trunk shows. It has come to my attention that we have not done a very good job conveying to you just what a trunk show is. During a trunk show, a vendor or bead artist sends or brings a wide assortment of their products or work, much more than we can stock in the store. This allows you to have a much broader and larger assortment of merchandise from which to choose and perhaps the opportunity to meet the artist who created the bead you just love! Trunk shows are held for 1-2 days, usually over a weekend. At the conclusion, the remaining merchandise is returned to the vendor or the artist packs up and goes home. The events for Finter.

We welcome many returning guest teachers as well as some new faces. Please make sure you check your schedule so you will get the classes you want. The teachers come infrequently, and the class offerings are not usually repeated so if you have an interest in a class make sure you schedule to take it. If there is a prerequisite, take it and if you need help in that department, remember we offer private classes. Anything is possible!

Creative Castle is still looking for a new owner to put her/his stamp on this entity- we are not closing if a buyer doesn't present her/himself. We will continue to serve the beading community by offering extraordinary service, products and classes for your beading and wire working pleasure and have full seasons of classes and events scheduled.

If you haven’t visited us in the last few months, we are bursting with “NEW”. We spent the first part of September refreshing the store with new paint, carpet and some remerchandising of product. All the seed beads have now been recolorized and the wall is one big rainbow by bead size! We carry many of the new shapes including: pips, true 2mm fire polish, super-duo beads, dragon scale beads, tulip petals, O beads, triangle, Emma beads, super 8's, 2 hole lentils, 2 hole triangles, bars, bricks, daggers and more.

Visit Just In and keep posted on our ever expanding beads, books, and supplies. We offer glass beads, seed beads, crystals, gem stones, fresh water pearls and have a great selection of findings for the latest jewelry designs. If you can't make it to the store; we come to you - we ship!

 Looking ahead to 2017......who knows where we will go I think France is on the horizon......

 

 

Thank you so much for your patronage! Your friendship and support of us, offers us the opportunity to do what we truly love. We love being able to host great instructors, and shelve Ventura County's largest bead selection. Most of all we love being with you and serving your creativity and inspiration!

Happy beading,
