Note on Nov. 19 Earring Class

Just a note: our Wednesday evening, November 19 Basic Wire Working: How to Make Earrings class is closed. If you want to take the class, please preregister and pay for the Saturday, Dec. 13 class.

For stringing classes, I will allow more than six people, but I prefer to be able to give folks a bit more attention with the wire working classes. The Dec. 13 will be our last scheduled earring class for 2008. Of course, we will be offering it once again in 2009, after the holidays.

We still have plenty of room in our upcoming bracelet and necklace design classes. But please, preregister AT LEAST two days before any of our beading and craft classes so I can make sure there is class space AND materials on hand to work with.

Remember, we provide all materials in our class fees. All classes are held at our shop at 117 N Broadway Ave, Urbana, IL 61801. Phone: 217-365-9355.

News-Gazette article about Beads N Botanicals

Don't let the headline fool you! The article gives us a nice mention about our new location in Urbana, Il 61801

Store moves to Urbana

Beads N Botanicals, which sells scented products and beading supplies, has moved from Hoopeston to downtown Urbana.

Now at 117 N. Broadway Ave., the shop also offers classes and consultations with owner Catherine Novak.

Novak also operates Wise Weeds Botanicals, a handmade oils and incenses retail/wholesale business she has had for 16 years.

Novak first opened her store in Hoopeston three years ago. She decided to relocate to Urbana, she said, because she has lots of potential customers there who know her through the tarot card readings she does in the area.

Her new Urbana store sells crystals, beads, semiprecious stones, crystal stones and clusters, medicinal and culinary herbs, handmade jewelry, tarot cards, teas, incense, hand-blended oils, books, candles, custom-blended perfumes and bath products.

Classes focus on jewelry-making, beading, aromatherapy, medicinal herbs and personal development.

Novak said she is available for consultation about herbs, aromatherapy, hypnotherapy, Reiki (a Japanese relaxation technique) and tarot readings.
