Yes we do PARTIES!

BIRTHDAY parties, BRIDAL parties, PRIVATE gal pal parties! Perfect for book clubs, church groups, Girl Scouts, work outings, and more!

We have a great space in the back of the shop that is well lit and has seating for up to 12. There is a small kitchenette area with a refrigerator and microwave.

Birthday Parties

Kids age 7 and older will have a blast at a Funky Hannah’s beading birthday party! Guests will make their own necklace and bracelet set using memory wire and their choice of charm and colors of glass seed beads. The cost is $112 for up to 8 children. Additional children are $14 each. Fee includes all supplies, an instructor for the beading project, & use of the room. Parties last 1-1/2 to 2 hours depending on whether you choose to do cake and presents here or not.

We schedule the parties during our normal store hours and recommend booking a month in advance as the same space is used for our beading classes. A deposit of $56 is requested at the time of reservation. Call or stop in to check date availability or for more information. We put the ‘FUN’ in Funky!

Bridal Parties

Consult with our staff & design your own bridal jewelry and then have a party with your pals to make it! Cost will vary based on materials used. A $20 per person class fee applies & covers use of space, tools and instructor. Two person minimum.

Private Parties

Want to get together with friends, family or co-workers and be creative? A basic necklace, bracelet or earring project is perfect for all skill levels. Cost is $20 per person and includes supplies.

Looking for something more? Our other class offerings may be available as a private class for your group depending on teacher availability and group. Call us to see what we can do. Class fee is $20 and supplies are additional.
