A Message from Kim West

I am absolutely honored to be the new owner of Stony Creek Bead.  I have been a long-time customer and it has been my favorite bead store for many years.  

I have been working in corporate America for a tax and accounting software firm for the last 19 years.  I am so excited for this opportunity to be able to get out from behind a computer and share the love of beading with all of you on a full time basis.  

I know that I have some big shoes to fill.  Jenn and Sue have a wealth of knowledge and inspiration.  I hope you will share this beading journey with me!

Big, and we mean BIG, news...

On May 5, 2005, Sue and I started an incredible journey - owning and operating Stony Creek Bead.  That was ten years ago, and we have decided that is time to change directions in the journey of our lives. Through a wonderful chain of events, we were given the opportunity to sell the business to someone who will love it as much as we do.  

Effective February 22, 2015, Kim West will be the new owner of Stony Creek Bead.  Some of you already know her. We hope that you welcome her with open arms and continue your amazing support, just as you have done with us.  

Both Sue and I know that none of this would have been possible without our amazing customers - you.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.  

This Is NOT Goodbye!

Sue and I will still be selling our patterns on Etsy (as well as a few guest artist's too).  We have changed the name of our online store to Paint Creek Bead Design.  Be sure to check us out and come back often as we will be adding new patterns often as possible.

Sue's last full day is February 21, 2015.
  However, she will continue to teach classes and private lessons at Stony Creek Bead.  In fact, why not sign up for one of her classes right now?  Call or come in to register.  734.544.0904
