I have become interested in making beaded jewelry. It's very relaxing, fun and creative. I found the most amazing bead shop in Long Beach Washington - got started there. The beads are not expensive and they have tons!
I did go to the Bead Club in Woodinville. Located in a strip mall at 17616 140th Ave NE
Woodinville, WA 98072
It was pricy and not very friendly at all. Although my son and I shopped around in there for over 20 minutes, neither of the clerks asked us if we needed help. I finally asked one woman for assistance and she gave me the briefest answer and handed me a "how to" brochure - that's it. I ended up spending $71 there and then they took some interest in me. I will continue to look for other shops that are more willing to help and are more welcoming.
