December Open Bead Night

Posted on November 5th, 2019 in Open Bead Night by |

December 3rd, 2019 – 6-9pm at Hot Shop Glass!  Just one block north & one block west of the old Funky’s — at 239 Wisconsin Ave.  This is our sister business, for the past 14 years!  We’ve moved Funky’s classroom to the backroom at Hot Shop!  Bring your bead projects and enjoy this monthly tradition.  Parking is super easy & convenient….but pay attention:  Enter the Shoop parking ramp from State Street almost at Main St.  Take a ticket (It’s just $1  to enter/exit after 5:30, you pay with cash or card at departure) and head up to the right.  Hot Shop Glass is the building right next to the ramp.  Enter in our front or back entrance!  Bring a treat to share if you’d like. We’ll order some pizza and have a full size fridge and freezer if you need it.

Space is limited.  We hope you will join us.  Laughter, creativity and a memorable adventure guaranteed.  Don’t miss out!  Space is limited due to our open beading room and seats on the Trolley…so don’t delay in registering.
