Bead Shop Success

Helping bead stores succeed is our passion!  We especially love to hear success stories from our bead shop owners, and here is just one that we decided to share.

“As a bead store owner I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate doing business with people who work to help me succeed. Not only do you offer the ‘Visit Your Local Bead Shop Promotion’ but I was recently contacted by Terri about having Lisa Barth debut her book ‘Timeless Wire Weave’ at my store A Bead Garden. I want to say THANK YOU for giving me the opportunity to meet Lisa, who is lovely and so very very talented.  With Lisa's consent we have decided to conduct a series of classes under the title WIRE WEAVE UNIVERSITY. And Kalmbach has agreed to do an email blast to Georgia subscribers each time we hold a class.

Again, THANK YOU for all you do to support local bead shops, from the special programs to connecting us with published Teachers, to being so pleasant to work with whenever I've called. Kalmbach is a pleasure to work with and I appreciate our association”
