  1. I’m looking for a good bead store in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area.
    I’ve been to Bead Quest (overpriced) and Strung Out (so-so).
    I was wondering if anyone can help me out here?
    Thanks, Kat

    • Yikes! Sorry I haven’t checked in for a long time… obviously! The only other bead store that I know of is Little Bohemia which is now just off of Division downtown.

    • There is a great little needlecraft shop called Country Needleworks, and they carry some fantastic (and really inexpensive) stone, charms, beads, and crystals. (In fact, some of their Swarovski is less than half the price BeadQuest charges!). In in Jenison, next to Field’s (a Michigan left off Chicago Dr. coming from Grand Rapids).

  2. I’m interested in previewing this event in my weekly Press column. Please send the organizer’s contact info to jennifer@craftsanity.com. Thanks!

    • Argh! Sorry I missed this before the show. We would have loved the publicity… How about next year?
